What are the cost benefits of participating in Trade Missions?


“The Trade Mission event was an incredibly efficient way to meet a large number of potential investors, far more productive than other GP/LP conferences. Highly recommend it!”

—Paul Grim, Sunbridge Partners



  1. Without the trade mission format, it would be impossible to set up 40-50 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 two days. This is a major advantage and a significant save in time, expense and opportunity cost. As we all know, "Time is Money".
