Chad Gracia focuses on helping U.S. and international private equity and real estate fund managers to build strong LP relationships in the Middle East, where he has raised more than $1 billion for his clients. For more than twenty years, he has worked with high net worth individuals in the region, as well as advised Saudi ambassadors, the Saudi Royal Court, the Bahrain Royal Court, various regional institutions, the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA) as well as the U.S. government. As a placement agent, The Gracia Group has represented some of the largest hedge fund and private equity funds in the world; in real estate, we were chosen by Gary Barnett of Extell Development to lead their Middle East relationship-building efforts.
