Declared interests on Palico help investors and managers from all over the world discover each other quickly, and close private equity primary and secondary investment efficiently.

A Tip for Declaring Interests

If you’re an investor, to optimize your use of Palico’s marketplace, we would suggest you create several categories of interests, rather than just one all-encompassing list. For example, if you’re interested in both North American venture capital funds and Latin American growth funds, you could create two separate categories, labeled accordingly. Currently available investments among North American venture capital fundraisings and Latin American growth opportunities will then appear under easily perused, separate headings on your home page.
