The profiles of our typical manager clients fall into three primary categories...
These managers are often understaffed during stressful and busy times (e.g. fundraising periods) and thus, partner with us on special projects such as annual investor meetings, broken processes, new-fund builds and funds in wind-down.
AUM $100mm - $2bn
This is the bread and butter of our business. These managers often do not have investor relations in-house, or if they do, it is a shared or junior resource. They may have a fundraising professional or hired a placement agent. They are close to or already operating in the institutional investor world. They want to engage in more institutional investor relations practices, but do not necessarily need an expensive full-time professional. We partner with them to act as an extension of their team and provide the full scope of investor relations services (e.g. fully retained engagements, investor marketing materials and content, special projects, investor letters and reporting, LP servicing, LPAC meetings etc.)
Startup & Emerging Managers
The operating model for any startup or emerging manager is outsourcing across the board. We partner with pedigreed and experienced portfolio managers in this space, to help them launch or pre-market their fund and firm with a polished narrative and marketing materials. We also engage with them on an advisory basis, to help them understand best-practice in investor relations and how they need to prepare for capital raising.
The top 3 reasons clients call us...
To build or overhaul their primary investor presentation - develop the narrative, build out and fine-tune the content, overhaul and develop design, graphics and charts, and coach them on their presentation delivery.
To take on their annual investor meetings - planning, development and execution - both from an event and content perspective.
To be advised on and help them execute on best-practice in investor relations both from a strategy and tactical implementation standpoint - investor communications, on-going investor service, investor letters and reporting, process-management, and technology (CRM, client portals, website).
