Grafine Partners, an alternative asset management firm that takes a varied approach to investing private capital, has named Julie Fisher managing director. 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 and managing partner of Grafine. “She has a deep understanding of the intricacies, and an action-oriented approach to solving the needs of these investors. In addition, her investment banking and advisory background is germane to our efforts of bringing capital closer to the deal.”
