“Capital Raising – Finders”
Purpose – The basic role of a Placement Agent is capital raising for the General Partners of Private Equity Funds, Venture Capital Funds, and Hedge Funds as expeditiously as possible.
Most Placement Agents introduce fund managers to investors and get paid a fee for that introduction. People believe that the sole function an a Placement Agent is to be a glorified Rolodex of Investors. The least sophisticated agents, with minimal market knowledge are probably just that. REO Capital has unique distribution channels with Institutional Investors such as RIA firms, Wealth Management firms, Investment Consultants, Pension Consultants, Fund of Funds, Single Family Offices, Multi-Family Offices, Foundations, Insurance Companies, Corporate Pensions, & Endowments. Fund Managers hire Private Placement Agents to help make the fundraising process more efficient.
Private Equity & Venture Capital Fund sales are not driven simply by receiving a Private Placement Memorandum – PPM. Most Institutional Investors want to meet in person with the General Partners. Given the Importance of these meetings, fundraising results in extensive travel, often to locations that are off-the-beaten path such as Bismarck, Cambridge, Detroit, St. Louis, Sacramento or Salt Lake City.
