4vco only recruits experienced professionals with a background in private equity. We also maintain relationships with a number of associates that we can call upon for specific support as required.

4vco is the number one provider of independent advice and support to this niche market throughout the UK and Europe.  We are proud of our independence and ensure that all consulting revenue is sourced from the ‘buy-side’ with no introductory fees or other incentives.  All fees are based on time and expenses.

To date, 4vco has worked on over 140 engagements for more than 90 private equity organisations.  One in four engagements is outside of the UK - client assignments have been undertaken in Scandinavia, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Africa and the Americas.  See sample clients and case studies.

Our clients range in size from small to very large and cover a wide range of business models including:  venture capital, buy-outs, infrastructure, funds of funds, secondaries, limited partners, pension funds, family offices, advisors and fund administrators.

Our assignments cover the full project life cycle from strategic advice, through product selection, implementation and post-operational support.  

4vco also promotes the software and services that are available to private equity through its PESS brand.  Our current PESS Directory includes profiles of 50 private equity suppliers and the annual PESS Showcase in London and New York is the must-attend event for private equity operations professionals.
