Hamersley Partners

Over $5.1 Billion Raised

Over 50 Years of Experience

Deep Institutional Relationships

Forging Successful Relationships

Hamersley Partners is a third-party marketing firm focused on selecting institutional-quality investment managers, and increasing their assets. We believe that the size of the institutional manager universe can cause investors to remain unaware of certain high-quality firms available to fit their needs. Our goal is to pair these managers with discerning, progressive investors in mutually beneficial relationships.

The team at Hamersley Partners has over 50 years of investment and sales experience, and has raised over $5.1 billion in assets since 2008 from US and international institutional investors. The firm has strong relationships with industry decision-makers across multiple distribution channels including institutional consultants, public and private pension funds, endowments and foundations, sub-advisory and wrap programs, RIAs, and emerging manager programs. Hamersley Partners is a broker-dealer registered with the SEC, a member of FINRA and SIPC, as well as a member of Third Party Marketers Association.
