Includes site visits to Abu Dhabi (October 21, 2018) and Muscat (October 22, 2018), and a customized itinerary in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the region. Each mission focuses on relationship building, and a delegation of 12 US GPs meets LPs, including the key sovereign wealth funds, large institutional investors, high net worth individuals, and others active in international investing. One registration allows for two individuals from each GP firm to participate.
Sunday, October 21st: Abu Dhabi
Monday, October 22nd: Muscat, Oman
Tuesday - Wednesday, October 23-24th: Customized trips for each delegate in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the region.
Join us in Muscat, Oman on October 22nd at the invitation of the US Ambassador for a day of discussion, one-on-one meetings, and lunch with pre-screened, actively allocating Omani LPs.
In the early evening, LPs and local VIPs will meet at the home of the US Ambassador to Oman for cocktails and continued discussions in a less formal environment. Details here.
This package includes:
- A pre-call analysis by Chad Gracia of your standard briefing deck.
- Answers to any questions about our programs that you might have, including the history and types of firms that have received the most interest.
- Feedback on what geographies and types of LPs where I think you'll find the strongest reception.
- Suggestions for what elements of your presentation and/or materials could be stronger (from the perspective or our Middle East LPs).
- Insights on how previous GPs have successfully raised capital from the region.
The cost of this consultation will be deducted from your invoice if you decide to join any of our upcoming programs in the next five years.
"We held a 1-hour strategy/consulting call with Chad and it was well worth it. Not only did he have specific suggestions for how we could improve our marketing materials for a MENA audience, he also gave us concrete ideas into how we could more successfully market our fund to LPs in the region. He studied our materials in advance and was well prepared with both specific advice and potential LP contacts he thought would be appropriate for our fund.” - Phillip Caplan, RENOVA CAPITAL PARTNERS
After each official trade mission, I send a briefing book of five selected global GPs to more than 100 active LPs in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE and Oman.
We will share your firm 1-pager with the same LPs who will be invited to our In-Person trade missions, and the mailer is branded with US Commerce Department seal. Details are here.
(The Virtual Mission and US Commerce Department Certified Trade Mission are not conducted under the auspices of any placement contract. Therefore, no success fees are ever due. No refunds.)
If you would like tailored introductions to LPs in the MENA region (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, the UAE, Oman and Qatar), we can put together a list of 25 qualified targets and make a personalized direct introduction. We can never guarantee any investments, but you will be certain to expand your list of screened, active LPs in the Middle East.
Our list of LPs comes from our work with the US Commerce Department and local US embassies and is the result of more than 20 years work in the region with sovereign wealth funds, pensions and other institutions, as well as family offices.
This service is research and consulting only, no success fees will be owed to the Gracia Group for capital raised.
