Our Story

Ascendant Capital was founded in 2012 by Jeffry Schneider. In the beginning, we partnered with several firms focusing on distributing alternative investments to the independent financial advisor community. Once Ascendant Capital partnered with GPB Capital to launch their business, it became clear that GPB Capital was the right long-term partner. Since January 2015, Ascendant Capital has been the exclusive fundraising partner to GPB Capital.
