In an analysis of SEC filings dating back to the placement agent’s founding, TPG Capital BD doesn’t appear to have assisted in the fundraising of any other non-TPG related vehicles.

Recent underwriting deals include the January initial public offering of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, backed by Apollo Global Management and TPG, and a secondary offering by Graphic Packaging Holding, a TPG- and Clayton Dubilier & Rice-backed business.

The placement agency isn’t too well known, nor is it heavily advertised.

TPG’s own website doesn’t mention the placement agent or the service at all.

And when asked, more than 30-year industry veteran Kelly De Ponte, a managing director of independent placement firm Probitas Partners, said he had never heard of TPG’s internal unit. De Ponte said placement agents, especially younger ones within a larger organization, can be successful.

TPG Capital’s in-house placement group appears to be branching out beyond its private equity parent.

TPG Capital BD LLC, based in TPG’s Fort Worth, Texas office, recently helped Bank of America spin off Ridgemont Equity Partners and raise 5 million for the firm’s first fund.

The placement agency had also helped Ridgemont originally separate from Bank of America when the bank sold stakes in the portfolio that the firm managed to a group of secondary buyers, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings last year.

The private placements appear to be the among the first private equity offerings that TPG Capital BD marketed that were not TPG-branded funds, according to an analysis of SEC filings.

It’s unclear whether this is just a one-off deal for the group or the initial groundwork for a broader push into the market.

A spokeswoman for TPG declined to comment on the matter.

Founded in 2007, TPG Capital BD is led by Chief Executive Peter Mc Millan, a long-time executive of TPG.

For 2012, the placement agency had million in total revenue, according to an SEC filing last month.
