Better hedge fund investor pitch

Money Mavericks – Confessions of a Hedge Fund Manager

April 22, 2011

Just finished this book by hedge fund manager Lars Kroijer. Highly recommended. I particularly liked his quote about pitching to investors at a hedge-fund manager conference.

“The managers all have charts and graphs with bubbles and arrows going everywhere with long lists of their special edge in the market, all called something from a business-school textbook like ‘our alpha machine’ or ‘our sustainable competitive advantage’.

You usually find many of the hedge-fund managers self-absorbed and arrogant, clearly having been told a few too many times how smart and special they are….By the ninth meeting you are exhausted and can’t remember who said what.”

If your hedge fund pitches are also having this problem, then you need some assistance.

At Benjamin Ball Associates we can help you put together an impressive hedge fund investor pitch that stands out. We can also show you many ways of engaging with your investor audience.
