Catalyst Cap Intro Events are sector focused, investor driven events that host hand-picked investment managers and investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.
This Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses only on the L/S Equity | Quant Investing sectors. Strategies covered include, among others: fundamental research, global equity, merger arbitrage, small/micro caps, regional/international, industry specific, trend/signals, as well as options, volatility/statistical arbitrage, high-frequency, and model/systematic funds.
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. If a manager has not enough interest, they may cancel their participation, with full refund of fees.
Investors are pre-screened and pre-qualified prior the events, by questionnaires and talks. Investors constitute predominantly single and multi-family offices, endowment and foundations, and their advisors, located on the US East Coast corridor, but also internationally.

We also ask investors to join the 'Catalyst Capital Network', which further qualifies and ensures their fit to the events.
