What are the cost benefits of participating in Trade Missions?

Testimonial

“Overall, it was excellent. The trade mission was well planned, well organized and delivered value for the money.”

Fernando Bensuaski, CFO, Chenco Holdings

  1. Without the trade mission format it would be impossible to set up 20-30 LP meetings in one day with pre-qualified potential LPs. It would require multiple days and multiple trips. This is a major benefit in terms of dollars, time, and energy saved.
  2. The same level of meetings would probably require a minimum of two to three trips to meet the same number of high-level people. These additional trips alone are equivalent to or will cost more than the Trade Mission in terms of airfare and hotel.
  3. A placement agent would also charge you a commission on your earned management fee and on your performance fee. There are no commissions charged on ANY investments you receive during the Trade Mission.
  4. There is a cost in time and energy involved in identifying prospects, securing contact info, contacting the prospects, convincing them to meet and then coordinating the schedule in an efficient manner. The Trade Mission takes place on one day and all the LPs come to your hotel. This is a major advantage and a significant save in time, expense and opportunity cost. As we all know, “Time is Money”.

LP Participant Profile

Australian LPs will be invited by our Australian national co-chairmen in both Sydney and Melbourne. We expect strong attendance from more than forty highly qualified pension funds and insurance companies, banks, single- and multi-family offices, wealth management advisors, and high net worth individuals that either have an exposure to US alternative assets or have expressed an interest in doing so in the future. This Certified Trade Mission will provide you the opportunity for one-on-one private meetings with each LP in attendance. Seven Hundred LPs have been identified as potential Australian Institutional and family office attendees. The LP list will be qualified further once the U.S. delegation is selected to ensure compatibility with the U.S. Funds attending.
