The Catalyst Cap Intro Active Alpha Investing event seeks to host investment managers which are able to consistently produce Alpha. Such a manager uses a successful Active investing process to outdo, outsmart and outperform peers and relevant benchmarks.

Institutional investors have come to appreciate that they require Active Alpha investment managers for a portion of their investing needs. They cannot easily replicate Active Alpha investing themselves or find similar products through exposure or passive investing.

This event is investor driven and transactional in scope, hosting Active Alpha-oriented investment managers and institutional grade investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.

Investment strategies at this fall 2022 event include a cross section of different focuses, markets, and geographies. Some notable strategies include L/S equity & Long-only, Credit & Fixed income, Merger Arb, Event driven, Quant & Options, Currencies, Macro & CTAs, International/Global markets, Distressed & Deep-value, Commodities & Energy. Managers may offer their products through different structures, such as investment funds, SMAs or advisory features.

This event is live, in-person, where managers give presentations during lunch, followed by private meetings. The event concludes with a networking reception. Participants are given access to a dedicated online event portal, where the agenda, meetings, event binder and delegates are listed.  The event is small and exclusive, with only around 30 participants in a controlled environment.

The introductions are arranged prior the events, in an investor driven fashion based on the merits of each investment manager and the requests made by the investors. There are no service providers, only managers and investors.

Investors are pre-screened and pre-qualified prior the events, by completing a COIN questionnaire. Investors constitute predominantly single and multi-family offices, investor intermediaries, and end-investors, located in the US but also internationally.

This event production builds on Catalyst’s history and successful track record in putting together industry-recognized and effective capital raising events.
