A New Way for Non-US Investors to Access US Deal Flow

Today, more and more investors want direct access to deals. Whether they're pensions, endowments and foundations, family offices or sovereign wealth funds, investors want more of a say over how their money is being put to work, and that means direct investments. The problem is that the best investment opportunities are often the hardest to source. That problem increases exponentially for a foreign investor trying to access US deal flow. It's hard to build up a network when you're located thousands of miles away from the source of the investments, and doing due diligence on deals is frustrating when it requires flying half way around the world.

Direct Investing: An Innovative Solution for Managers to Raise Capital

Emerging managers are finding it increasingly difficult to raise capital. The financial crisis was the catalyst for a secular trend in the alternative investment industry that has seen the largest managers continue to grow while smaller firms find it challenging to stay in business. Despite the compelling evidence that emerging managers on average outperform their larger peers, investors have overwhelmingly selected the largest asset managers. Preqin, an alternatives research firm, estimates that the top 500 managers control 90% of assets even though they make up only 11% of the universe.[1] Premier talent and an outstanding track record are no longer sufficient to raise capital for an investment fund. Investors now require best in class infrastructure which only larger firms are able to provide.
