Albourne Partners Limited was established in London, UK, in 1994 as an independent specialist consultant focused on alternative investments, today encompassing hedge funds, private equity, private credit, real assets, real estate and dynamic beta. We believe we are one of the largest independent alternative consultants, working with clients on a fixed-fee, non-discretionary basis only; a business ...model which we believe minimizes conflicts of interest.
