REO Capital – is a leading capital introduction firm for Emerging Managers as well as Established Managers of private investments with unique strategies such as Private Equity Funds and Venture Capital Funds. REO Capital was founded in 2010 to address the needs of the Emerging Managers that are mostly ignored by some larger placement agents. REO Capital has over 25 years of experience in raising capital for Institutional Emerging Managers and established managers.
REO Capital – defines an Emerging Manager as any Fund Manager on Fund #1, #2, #3, or Fund #4. Institutions typically have mandates that prohibit them from investing in any manager that does not have a 5 year track record. Other Placement Agents claim to have raised more capital for Emerging Managers than REO Capital, but the caveat is that they raise capital for Emerging Managers who Fund size is $500 million or more! REO Capital has specialized in working with Emerging Managers that seek to raise capital from $100 million to $500 million in capital for Fund 1, 2, 3, etc.. since 2010. We target LP Investors that other Placement Agents do not target such as RIA Firms thus, REO Capital is the best fit for Emerging Managers. Our LP Investors are receptive to Emerging Managers because they know they can achieve a higher Alpha on the Funds we represent.
REO Capital works with Institutional Investors such as RIA firms, Wealth Management firms, Fund of Funds, Single Family Offices, Multi Family Offices, Private Investment firms, Private Banks, Foundations, Endowments, Corporate Pensions, Pension Consultants, and Investment Consultants. Some Placement Agents do not target the these LP Investors.
REO Capital – attends various RIA conferences and Wealth Management conferences throughout the United States plus we attend several different Family Office global conferences to assist the Emerging Managers we work with. We have found that these LP Investors maybe overlooked to a large degree by some of the other Placement Agents.
We have also found through attending these RIA conferences that over the past 20 years that there has been a significant shift in wealth out of pensions and into RIA firms.
REO Capital – is constantly updating our Institutional LP investors to offer a more complete distribution of qualified Investors to our clients.
REO Capital – Is uniquely different from other placement agents.
– We do not lock our clients into a 24 month contract.
– Our distribution channels are more diverse, than some other placement agents.
– Our firm works on a limited number of funds to prevent duplicating and competing capital raises.
– Most placement agents are Investment Bankers, we are not Investment Bankers.
– Most Placement Agents charge a excessive monthly retainer fees – We do not have excessive fees!
“REO Capital is not registered to provide brokerage or securities services in State of Michigan or to Investors in Michigan”. “REO Capital will not work with any Investors or Issuers in the State of Michigan”. “REO Capital has decided not to be Licensed in the State of Michigan and REO Capital will not conduct business with Investors or Issuers in Michigan”. We found that Michigan is not significant when it comes to Private Equity or Venture Capital as much as, New York City or Chicago or San Francisco California! Therefore, REO Capital does not need to conduct business in Michigan and generate tax revenues for a state that is not receptive to Placement Agents!
