Umergence is a premier broker dealer placement agent specializing in private placements and alternative investments. Our representatives focus on institutional capital placements, M&A advisory, early to late stage direct investments, and late-stage secondary opportunities.


Our back office systems use a proprietary data management systems that enable supervision, operational efficiency, and 24 hour access. Our goal is to provide stakeholders with the tools and information they need, allowing for smooth transactions from inception to closing.

Umergence was inspired by the word “Emergence”, which is a phenomenon of coming together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.  When we come together in the deal making process, we strive to create the most value for our clients.

Our team is here to help clients navigate the opacity of alternative investing and private capital markets. Our goal is to offer solutions, not obstacles, and the wisdom of experience to get things done right.
