In addition to demanding on-target investment returns, investors expect consistent attention and timely information flow from fund managers throughout the life of their funds. Regular dialogue, visits, and the provision of timely, accurate information are essential to develop lasting relationships between investors and management teams
For fund managers with a primary focus on sourcing new investments, and managing portfolio companies, regular dialogue with investors can divert vital resources. Cygnus Capital undertakes high quality reporting and liaison with investors, to meet their needs and expectations, and to engender close ties between partners
The fundraising and investor relations process should not be confined to existing clients. Many investors will have been unable to commit to a fund, for a variety of reasons, and may wish to monitor a team’s progress, with a view to investing in the successor fund. Again, Cygnus Capital can maintain this important dialogue on behalf of clients.
