Hi, I am Silke Blume
I am an Alternative Investment professional (MBA, CAIA) with 20+ years of international track record in matching Institutional Investors with investment opportunities throughout all major asset classes: Stocks and Bonds, Hedge Funds and Private Equity, liquid and illiquid strategies.As an early mover and long before the recent years boom, I have specialized in Private Markets, an umbrella term which unites a range of non-standardized asset classes such as Private Equity, Real Assets, Renewal Infrastructure, Timber, Agriculture, Real Estate and Art.
Being also a passionate innovator and to tackle the challenges of investing in illiquid asset classes, I have deeply researched (MBA 2017) digital business / operating models in the Private Markets sector and developed a digital deal sourcing platform which reinvents investing in non-standardized asset classes.
Helping Private Markets asset managers and investors to increase their operational efficiency as well as re-inventing business models in Private Markets since then became my main professional interest.
After having lived and worked in Germany, the UK, Switzerland and Italy, I am now mainly based in Hamburg, Germany, from where I operate across Europe.
