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.
The ‘search and partnering up’ GP/LP process in the alternative investing industry is tough: Raising capital and finding sophisticated, active investors is a constant challenge for funds, especially for smaller managers. Conversely, for investors, it is difficult to identify appropriate managers that can help achieve their portfolio goals. Catalyst has developed a time-tested, proven format for capital introduction events that addresses the challenges of both LPs and GPs. We welcome you to join and grow your business through us.
This fall 2020 Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses on the CTAs, Quant and A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) Fund Investing sectors. These innovative strategies are continuing to be popular with investors, and have experienced a lot of investment inflows. The event will include the following strategies: High frequency trading, Stat arb, Vol arb, Pure Arb, Signals trading with A.I., Intangible assets trading, Overlay strategies, CTAs, Options and futures, Currencies, Blockchain strategies, Systematic equity, 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 a dedicated online event portal, where the agenda, meetings, event binder and delegates are listed.
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.Register/Apply

We seek fund managers that are successful, small to mid-sized (about $30m-$1bn), and with a strong product offering. In particular, we look at a manager's:
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.
