Sierra Capital
sierra placement agent


Sierra Capital was founded in 2018 as a place­ment agent for alter­native and struc­tured invest­ment solu­tions in Frankfurt, Germany.

Our primary objec­tive is to bring together high-quality asset ma­na­gers with our estab­lished insti­tu­tio­nal investor net­work in Germany. With Frankfurt being our home base, we operate in close proxi­mity to the inves­tors, which allows us to act as a reliable local repre­sen­tative for in­ter­natio­nal asset mana­gers. Our service goes beyond the pure place­ment of funds. We support our pro­duct part­ners not only with dedi­cated capital raising ser­vices, but also provide advi­sory sup­port to asset mana­gers in the product design phase, as well as acting as a local cover­age specia­list for on­going investor ser­vicing.  

Sierra Capital is an expert in alternative and structured investment solutions. Based on many years working for major international invest­ment banks in London and Frankfurt and a broad net­work in alternative markets, Sierra Capital is well positioned to identify managers that we consider attractive for the German market.

Since 2022, Sierra Capital has been working in an exclusive private markets partnership with the international fundraising and strategic advisory firm Reach Capital, which has been active in alternatives for more than a decade and has already been involved in advising over 10 billion euros in private markets capital from international investors. Through this partnership and the comprehensive expertise of Reach Capital, Sierra Capital can offer German institutional investors access to established, attractive managers in the private markets sector.
