SkyKnight Capital L.P., a private equity firm partnering with founder-led firms, has made an initial investment in New Republic Partners, a financial services firm focused on investment, wealth advisory, and credit services.

NRP was founded in 2021 and assists its clients in comprehensive wealth management services and access investment strategies traditionally saved for large institutional investors. The firm is backed by the Belk-Pilon and Springs-Close-Bowles families, both founding clients and shareholders of the firm.

New Republic Partners was advised by Troutman Pepper Hamilton Sanders LLP and Brooks, Pierce, McLendon, Humphrey & Leonard, LLP. SkyKnight was advised by Holland & Knight LLP, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, and Kroll LLC.
