Founded in 2008, Catalyst Financial Partners is a specialist investor events and services firm for the private funds industry. We link together alpha-oriented private funds and institutional grade investors.
The management of Catalyst has a deep network of institutional investors in in the US which makes up the bulk of allocations to the private investment funds industry in the world. The firm has particularly strong knowledge of family office investors as well as endowments and foundations, and their advisors.
We aim to foster relationships with investment managers that start with a consultative dialogue to understand an investment firm and its capital raising strategy. Our investor events are one component of our services platform, and we often consult with managers before, during and after our events.
For investors, we stay apprised on individual strategy preferences, return objectives, regional desires, and other characteristics that allow us to host managers that are most appropriate. Our events, as well as our management, also act as an information resource for investors on current fund investing industry trends and developments.
We have also the Catalyst Online Investor Network (COIN), which is a members-only, online capital introduction platform tailor-made for qualified investors and institutional allocators who focus on alternative investing. COIN helps us qualify our investor event participants, as well as giving investors a tool to discover new managers online. For comprehensive capital raising assignments we refer to our sister company Catalyst Fund Advisors, a third party marketing firm.
The team of Catalyst has a successful track record in producing specialized investor events, and team members have previous experiences in investment banking, family office investing, private equity and hedge funds, as well as event planning.
