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 summer 2020 Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses on the Real Estate Fund Investing sectors. Strategies covered include: development, added-value, commercial, single-multi residential, single family, luxury hotels, real estate financing and debt, bridge financing, infrastructure, projects and complexes, and international projects. Managers typically offer their products through investment funds, co-investment and direct deals.
As this in-person event is coming out of the gates post-Covid, we anticipate much of the discussion will revolve around what investment opportunities there are in the period ahead as a result of the extremely fast changing environment.
At the event managers give short presentations during lunch, which is followed by meeting sessions. There are no service providers, only managers and investors.
Introductions are accomplished through private meetings which 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.
Investors are pre-screened and pre-qualified prior the events, by questionnaires and talks. Investors constitute predominantly single and multi-family offices, investor intermediaries, and end-investors, located in the US but also internationally.
Note: the event is held alongside the Credit | Fixed Income Investing event, due to that event being postponed from March. Furthermore, we anticipate that the format of the event may be modified to some extent, in order to make it possible for us to conduct a safe in-person event, keeping the developing Corona situation in mind.Register/Apply
To highlight exceptional managers, we are also giving out a 'Catalyst Cap Intro Award' to the best manager at the event as based on the investors' feed-back. This award will be official and listed on Catalyst's website.
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. In particular we look at an investor's 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. We also ask investors to join the 'Catalyst Capital Network', which further qualifies and ensures their fit to the events.
