Ms. Fisher, a former Managing Director and longtime investor relations expert at Providence Equity Partners, will focus primarily on business development and relationships with Grafine's capital partners globally.
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Julie professionally for over 20 years, and always admired her ability to build substantive relationships throughout her career with endowments, foundations, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and family offices," said Elizabeth Weymouth, Founder & Managing Partner of Grafine.

The firm's differentiated approach allows it to source unique investment opportunities and execute on alpha-generating direct deals across a range of industry sectors, geographies, and capital structures that align with the evolving needs of its institutional investor network.
Ms. Fisher joins a talented group of investment professionals at Grafine with a diverse array of backgrounds from structuring and due diligence to manager selection and portfolio construction.

Prior to her 13 years at Providence, Ms. Fisher was a Private Equity Consultant at Cambridge Associates, where she advised on asset allocation and private equity manager selection for a range of endowments, foundations, and family offices. Previously, she was a Vice President with J.P. Morgan Securities, where she worked in the Private Equity and Natural Resources Groups raising capital for domestic and international companies.
