What They're Saying
The Trade Mission to Singapore was one of the most well-organized and productive events we have attended. It was an excellent way to meet a broad range of key institutions and private investors in the region, and we found it highly worthwhile.
I wanted to write to thank you for hosting the US Trade Mission in Hong Kong in January of 2016. Although it was very tiring to speak with so many clients, I was very impressed with the caliber of clients that you were able to connect us with. We were able to develop a strategy to access the Asian family office sector which we were not able to before. I continue to recommend this conference to the other alternative investment managers whom I speak with.
I found the Trade Mission in Singapore quite engaging and am looking forward to follow-up from the investors who showed interest in our strategy and approach. I thought the format of meetings in individual rooms was most productive and hope you continue that format in the future. I am looking forward to future Missions.
Thank you. I enjoyed the event and met many relevant people in the investment sector in Singapore. The Trade Mission was so valuable because we met several parties who are potentially interested investing in our sector. I would highly recommend the Trade Mission to Singapore because it was well organized, very efficient, with most of the relevant people in the country present. The quality and number of LPs we met in one day was mostly good. Most importantly, I scheduled two direct follow up meetings from the session and I am sure there will be several follow up calls on top. I also thought the session with the Ambassador was a helpful introduction to Singapore. I liked the all-day session format – made it more interesting and more broad.
Overall, it was excellent. The trade mission was well planned, well organized and delivered value for the money.
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of LPs I met. I feel there may be a some good real leads to follow up on.
I thought the Trade Mission was one of the most unique fundraising assets I’ve ever seen. The ability to have 50+ warm leads provided over the course of 1 day is phenomenal. It would have been impossible for our fund to have done anything like this ourselves and I doubt any financial service organizations could have provided a stronger group. I would highly recommend the Trade Mission Singapore, not just because the quantity of potential investors but the quality of investors.
Thanks for hosting last week’s event. It was very insightful and I enjoyed the “speed-dating” format. I’ve been following up with the managers of interest via email.
Thank you so much for organising this. It was very organised. Many of the fund managers are already doing the follow ups. It has been a productive event. Would love participate in future events like this. Do keep posted and stay in touch.
It was indeed an interesting morning. The discussions made me appreciate how dynamic and deep the VC universe is in the USA and how encouraging this must be for the younger generation of GPs. We had a great meeting with [xxxx] who are in a business similar to ours. Hopefully will initiate a dialogue with them.
