How To Use Your Service Providers To Improve Your Asset Raising Efforts
Webinar 1: Insights from Legal
Thursday, February 11, 2021 - 10am Eastern / 9am Central
Join AlphaWeek for its series of four webinars that are designed to provide hedge fund managers with insights from service providers as to how they can make better use of them in the manager's asset raising efforts.
When sophisticated investors conduct due diligence on a money management firm they are looking to evaluate two risks: that of the strategy and that of the business. Buying into the strategy and its implementation are vital but they are also looking for investment firm owners who demonstrate they have a small business owner's head on their shoulders.
Service providers are an often untapped resource to money management firm owners for counsel and insights on how to optimize business operations for the size of the firm today, and how to thoughtfully expand when it has more revenue to reinvest in the business.

Frumerman & Nemeth's work has helped money management firm clients attract over $7 billion in new assets, yet they are not third-party marketers.
Frumerman & Nemeth is internationally recognized for its work in crafting for clients the beyond-the-numbers story of how they invest — content that investment committees actually discuss, debate and vote on behind closed doors when considering firms on a short list for potential investment. Importantly, this is required due diligence content that cannot be communicated in pitchbook format.
Frumerman & Nemeth's work also includes providing strategic consulting on product and strategy-specific branding, crafting the required strategy-specific content detail and designing and producing the marketing tools needed to make it through the two-month to two-year institutional selling cycle. Clients also employ Frumerman & Nemeth to help promote the intellectual acumen of management — helping them get speaking opportunities, write and give speeches as panelists or stand-alone speakers at industry conferences, and through media relations marketing services.
