|Building Profiles and Marketing to the Relevant In a Bigger PE World|
In a competitive and global marketplace where GPs need to do all they can to stand out, and where LPs increasingly must cultivate their reputation and image to get access to the most in-demand investments, being part of the largest pool of private equity professionals in the world has its benefits. Both GP and LP members can build firm profiles on Palico that cover strategy, investment approach, history and team resources.

To enhance its value as a marketplace for private equity funds, whether they’re in pre-marketing, final call mode, or being offered as a secondary, Palico is also an investor relations, communications and marketing venue that builds trust among its members.
