The Catalyst Cap Intro High Alpha Funds – Miami is a pan-alternative strategies event focusing on managers showing high absolute returns. The event is investor driven and transactional in scope, hosting investment managers and institutional grade investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.

High Alpha Funds are characterized by employing innovative investment strategies by some of the smartest investment teams using best-in-class operational standards. Strategies covered include: CTA/Commodities, Quants & Options, Crypto & Blockchain, HFT, Event Driven, Emerging Markets, L/S Equity, Credit & Distressed and more. 

The 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 Catalyst Event Portal, where the agenda, meetings schedule with contact info, participants list and other info are available. The event is exclusive with only around 30 participants in a controlled environment, with a 1:2 manager to investor ratio.

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 (Catalyst Online Investor Network) questionnaire. Investors constitute predominantly single and multi-family offices, allocator 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.
