Catalyst Cap Intro events are investor driven and transactional events that host alpha-oriented investment managers and institutional grade investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.
This Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses on the Alternative Investing Funds space, kicking off 2021 with re-newed ideas, anticipation and momentum. The event hosts strategies across the spectrum, focusing on liquid or semi-liquid assets. Strategies covered 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, and more. Managers typically offer their products through investment funds, but also SMAs or advisory features.
This event is virtual, where managers give online presentations, followed by virtual private meetings. The event concludes with a virtual networking reception. Participants are given access to the proprietary online Catalyst Event Portal, which assists in managing and optimizing their event.
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.
Note: this is scheduled to be a virtual event, however it may be converted into a live, on-site event if health guidelines and other circumstances allow it. Please see our event terms for more information.Register/Apply

Each investor will undergo a multi-step qualification process in order to be granted admission to our events. Specifically, we ask investors to join the Catalyst Online Investor Network (COIN), whereby they share their investor profile, investing preferences, AUM, size of allocations made, and if there are any allocation restrictions (incl. size criteria of managers). The investors to a specific event are announced about two weeks beforehand to the registered managers.
