Alliance Consulting Group
Alliance Consulting Group is a boutique PE Firm serving a precise group of clients. Founded by Alex Cheng in 1997, it was introduced as a traditional CPA firm with the objective of helping emerging businesses and individuals with tax matters, bookkeeping, payroll and management advisory. However, it quickly grew to a 4-office, 26-employee small regional firm by the year 2000 through strategic acquisitions of neighboring CPA firms. In 2006, ACG shifted its focus, combining all of its expertise in order to solidfy an integral business consulting firm.
Since its early years, Alliance has managed assets for high-networth individuals. After repositiong, the team expanded its wealth management and investment advisory to even higher-networth clients. Currently we act as appointed representatives, manage multiple Private Equity Funds, with combined net assets of $800MM. For the past ten years and under the advisory of Alliance Consulting Group, our clients have placed majority of funds in multi-family rental apartments. Specifically, the Funds have acted as Sponsors and/or General Partners in the comprehensive development of such projects. Our investment horizon is typically 4-7 years. We have perfected our model of: Build – Stabilize – Profit. Alliance’s performance has been steadily in the low-20% on the annual basis (leveraged). We also work with an exhaustive construction lending platform which provides the necessary funding with minimum equity requirement.
While the demand for multi-family rental units in the U.S. are on the rise, our team has also made headway in purpose-built student housing apartments. In the last 10 years, we've performed extensive research to advise our clients and provide them with conservative yet high-return investments. Upon approval from our client, ACG will take over all aspects of process from land acquisition to sale at exit point, working with realtors, developers, general contractors and professional national management companies.
Our network is the foundation of our success, and we have earned the utmost trust from our clients. We look forward to working with you in your next project.
