Who better to tell you about what it's like working with us, than our clients themselves. Here is what our clients have to say about us:
We're excited to spotlight our dynamic partnership with Brackendale. Their deep understanding of our mission and of our counterparts, investors and managers, of the private markets asset classes and their implied intricacies has greatly enriched our collaboration. Brackendale's international edge and versatile approach align seamlessly with our vision. Their financial press connections, especially at senior levels, have expanded our reach remarkably. Meticulous planning and transformative design consistently exceed expectations. A truly great team to work with.
Jean-Philippe Boige & William Barrett Managing Partners, Reach Capital
Brackendale's superb team stood out to the judges for its multilingual and international edge, along with its multifaceted outlook… Of particular note are Brackendale's connections with LPs - much of the team’s senior leaders have experience on the LP side or with GP investor relations… Also noteworthy is Brackendale's hands-on approach; the judges expressed how well the boutique offering supports small and mid-cap GPs.

I would like to share my thanks to the Brackendale team for their hard work during our Ace Aquatec campaign. I want to acknowledge Alesha for her exceptional thoroughness and attention to detail. Alesha went above and beyond in ensuring that every aspect of the campaign was meticulously planned and executed. I felt a real commitment from her to delivering high-quality results throughout the project. I would also like to thank Fay for being on hand when we required any additional guidance and ensuring that we received the necessary support. Overall, we are extremely pleased with the results of the campaign. The team's efforts, including Alesha's meticulousness and Fay's support, have made a significant impact to the success of the campaign.
Elise Hockley COO, Earth Capital Limited
Alesha has been amazing to work with. She's given me a lot of confidence in interviews and our prep sessions have been super helpful with her posing questions to me and acting like she's the interviewer. I know you already know how great she is, but I wanted you to know my experience with her has been outstanding.
Wendy Norton Managing Director, Norgay Partners
Jon's work on our logo and pitch deck was just tremendous. A big thank you to Jon, Gareth and the Brackendale team for the excellent and speedy work - impressive!
Michael Sellman CEO, CGC
It was a pleasure working with the Brackendale team on our ESG report. They brought forth innovative ideas and were instrumental in building out our messaging through design. The end result was a first-class ESG report. Brackendale will continue to be a go-to partner for our firm’s ongoing creative initiatives.
Eliza Oshana McGrath Principal, Hastings Equity Partners
I was impressed with Brackendale’s friendly cooperation and excellent work redesigning our investor pitch deck, which has a real institutional outlook now. We have since received plenty of positive feedback from our investors and fundraisers. In addition to the graphic design work, we were also positively surprised about their media contacts. Brackendale took care of our media campaign which gained us coverage in the Wall Street Journal.
Alain Le Loux General Partner, Cottonwood Technology Fund
We have found it truly helpful to have Brackendale working with us in such a fluid and easy way. They have been flexible, responsive and worked late to meet critical deadlines for the production of our ESG report. We are thrilled with the results.
Emma France ESG Associate, Activa Capital
A big thank you to Cathy for the effort she made after hours to help us get the PPM over the line, for her patience on Wednesday and for working through it with me, with a smile and a laugh, late at night. We are very happy with the PPM.
Danai Musandu Senior Investor Relations Associate, HPE Growth
We have found it a pleasure to work with Brackendale across multiple projects. The team is very flexible and works very efficiently when presented with tight deadlines. Along with their work, which is of course excellent, we really value their reliability and are our first call when we need assistance with our fundraising materials.

It’s a real pleasure working with Fay and her team! They helped us reshape our reporting by actively participating in content brainstorming and bringing some very nice ideas on the design side. We now work with Brackendale every quarter to review and produce our LP reports. Their flexibility and respect of deadlines are highly appreciated. A very nice and reliable team to work with!
Filipe Dos Santos Director of Fund Administration, Qualium Investissement
It was a pleasure to work with the Brackendale team on the design of a corporate presentation under a short deadline. We worked closely with Jon and Cathy on the design team who were a pleasure to deal with throughout the development process. We have worked with Brackendale on multiple occasions and appreciate their attention to detail and ability to work to strict deadlines
Andy Kaplan Managing Partner, Education Growth Partners
We started working with Brackendale in April 2020 to help with the production of our GED VI España Fund PPM under international standards. They were recommended and introduced to GED by another European private equity house and we are extremely grateful to them. We found Brackendale and its team to be first class professionals: their attitude, leadership and deep knowledge of the private equity sector, together with excellent writing skills and design work resulted in an amazing PPM. They are hard-workers, committed to deadlines and with initiative. As a result of the experience, GED decided to work again with Brackendale for issuing its first ESG Report. In record time they delivered an exceptional report with superb graphic design. We will work together on future projects.

Brackendale delivered an exceptional service on a complex and time-sensitive private equity assignment, which required them to work on a Sunday. I was impressed with how clearly they followed our instructions, whilst taking the initiative on a number of creative/ design aspects. Excellent output and a small price to pay for creating a positive first impression and real impact.
George Curtis Founding Partner, Platypus Partners

They went above and beyond to provide excellent advice on presentation content, as well as providing thorough delivery and Q&A preparation.
