Adara Advisors

Adara Advisors is a for-purpose private placement business delivering high-quality services with integrity to global private equity and hedge fund managers. Adara Advisors has a 23-year track record of capital raising and deeply embedded partnerships with select clients.

We specialise in sourcing and raising capital for high-quality investment opportunities from institutional and high-net-worth Australian investors.

On each placement, Adara operates as a key member of the client’s Investor Relations team. We develop a deep understanding of the client, the opportunity and the products to bring to the senior Australian investor community.

We work with a small and very high-quality institutional-grade client base, bringing exceptional investment opportunities to investors.
