Link to Website
Catalyst Cap Intro events are investor driven and transactional events that host alpha-oriented investment managers and institutional grade investors that are introduced to each other with a view to become investment partners.
This Catalyst Cap Intro Event focuses on the Quantitative and Artificial Intelligence investment sectors. These strategies are becoming very popular with investors, and have experienced a lot of investment inflows. The event will include the following strategies: High frequency trading, Stat arb, Vol arb, Pure Arb, Signals trading with A.I., Intangible assets trading, Overlay strategies, CTAs, Options and futures, Currencies, Blockchain strategies, Systematic equity, and more.
Introductions are accomplished through private meetings which are arranged prior the events, in an investor driven fashion based on the merits of each investment manager and the requests made by the investors.
Investors are pre-screened and pre-qualified prior the events, by questionnaires and talks. Investors constitute predominantly single and multi-family offices, endowment and foundations, and their advisors, located in the US but also internationally.
This event production builds on Catalyst’s history and successful track record in putting together industry-recognized and effective capital raising events.

Meet with managers in a certain sector or asset class in an extremely time efficient format
Benefit from getting introduced to managers that are pre-selected, best-in-class, and alpha oriented
Attendance is complimentary, granted you qualify as an investor
Review the short-listed managers before the event, and only request to meet with managers you are interested in; no 'minimum set' of meetings necessary
Benefit from learning from fellow investors' questions and perspectives
We seek fund managers that are successful, small to mid-sized (about $30m-$1bn), and with a strong product offering. In particular, we look at a manager's:
Relevancy and strength of investment strategy
Performance track record and other metrics
AUM and AUM history for fund, strategy and firm
Liquidity and other investor terms
General fit with the short listed investors
Each investor will undergo a multi-step qualification process in order to be granted admission to our events. In particular we look at an investor's profile, investing preferences, AUM, size of allocations made, and if there are any allocation restrictions (incl. size criteria of managers). The investors to a specific event are announced about two weeks beforehand to the registered managers. We also ask investors to join the 'Catalyst Capital Network', which further qualifies and ensures their fit to the events.
