Alternative Investment Funds

1. Fund placement services to established managers

The fund placement service consists of (i) presenting the investment opportunity to duly validated investors, (ii) organising roadshows and meetings, (iii) attending investor conferences, (iv) enabling investors to successfully achieve their due diligence through Q&As, access to the GP virtual dataroom or visit at the GP office, and (v) ongoing reporting to the GP. This assumes all the documentation is ready, all regulatory authorisations have been obtained and the first close is already achieved at a significant level (40%) and the portfolio is already partly invested.

We would not consider first-time-team funds or first-time-strategy funds or first institutional funds without a minimum 40% first close already achieved or with a set plan to achieve this. We welcome spinoff teams with excellent and long track record.
