How do I find investments on Palico?

The easiest way to find investment opportunities on Palico is to visit the Marketplace. Once there, you can filter the available fundraisings, secondaries, and co-investments by strategy, region, industry, target size, and more, to quickly narrow the list to opportunities that fit your needs. You can also setup an alert to be notified about new potential investments that meet your criteria. Other ways to find investment opportunities are to use the GP and People Screeners to identify high-potential managers that may launch funds in the future. You can also create an anonymous wish list of funds that could interest you as secondaries in order to solicit the interest of fund owners.
