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, we send a briefing book of seven selected global GPs to more than 100 active LPs in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE and Oman. The next will take place in Q4 2019.
We will share your firm 1-pager with the same LPs who will be invited to our In-Person trade missions.
Includes 1 hour recorded briefing by our legal partners King & Spalding on general tips, marketing regulations, shariah and cultural issues to be aware of when building LP relationships in the region
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 qualified targets and make a personalized direct introduction. We help you craft a winning marketing strategy for the region, screen more than 1,000 LPs to find those that have an investing mandate that matches your offering, and then work closely with you to prepare compelling marketing documents, introduce, meet in person, and ultimately follow up to close a successful partnership with regional LPs. Our team arranges visas, meetings, flights, hotels and everything necessary for you to have an efficient and effective “road show” in the region.
While we’ve raised more than $1.5Bn for our clients, we can never guarantee any investments. However, you will be certain to expand your list of screened, active LPs in the Middle East, and we will do our best to expand your investor base to include long-term GCC partners. See what your peers have said about our work:
Our LPs connections come from more than 20 years of work in the region by our CEO Chad Gracia as well as seven years leading the the US Commerce Department Private Equity & Venture Capital trade mission program to the Middle East. In partnership with US embassies and local entities, we have assembled a highly curated list of active LP allocators: sovereign wealth funds, pensions and other institutions, as well as family offices throughout the GCC that are actively seeking to invest in funds.
