What is the format of the event? 

The virtual event will be held over two weeks and include one-on-one meetings and live webinar panels. 

Who is organizing the event?

Gaining the Edge has put on four highly successful cap intro events, including two in person, Gaining the Edge – Cap Intro New York 2022, Gaining the Edge - Cap Intro Florida 2022 and two virtual cap intro events in May of 2021 and October of 2020. Gaining the Edge also hosted Gaining the Edge – Hedge Fund Conferences which sold out all 6 events with over 2,000 industry registrations, and Gaining the Edge – Hedge Fund Educational Webinar Series, which has had over 7,000 industry professionals register for one of its 24 episodes. Agecroft Partners, an affiliate company of Gaining the Edge LLC., volunteers its time to help market the event and aid in the event’s success.  

What is the length of the meetings?

Meetings are scheduled to last for 30 minutes, but there is not a strict cut off once the time is reached. Participants who are willing and able to meet for longer have the flexibility to do so. 


What is the format of the virtual meetings?

Participants will be given a unique URL upon a 1-1 video meeting confirmation, which will allow up to 3 people per firm to join.



Is there any cost for investors/allocators to participate?

No, registration for "approved" allocators/investors is complimentary.

Is there a minimum number of meetings required for an allocator to participate?

Yes, investors are expected to sign up for a minimum of 5 meetings.


Has Gaining the Edge or Agecroft Partners completed due diligence on the managers participating in the event?

No, investors should read all disclosures and understand all risks associated with investing in alternative investments during the investor registration process. Investors should conduct their own due diligence on managers, and if need be, seek advice from their advisors or reputable third party organizations to validate information submitted by managers.



What is the cost for a manager to participate?

There is tiered pricing based on when a manager registers. Registration includes 2 logins to access the platform.  


Tier 1: $4,975            Tier 2: $5,975            Tier 3: $6,975

Is there a maximum number of meetings a manager can a schedule?

No. There are no additional charges for additional meetings.

Why should a manager sign up early?

Managers should sign up early to secure the lowest price.

We have more than one investment strategy/fund. Can additional funds be added?

The registration price is for one strategy. Additional strategies/funds can be added for an additional $750/fund.


Am I able to show a presentation during my meeting?


What if I register but don’t get any meetings? 

It is our objective for all alternative managers that participate in our event to have a large number of confirmed meetings. However, it is ultimately up to the investors to choose which funds they would like to meet with and Gaining the Edge cannot guarantee that a manager will be successful in confirming meetings. We will not be providing any refunds.


What happens if an investor does not show up for a scheduled meeting time or they have internet connection issues and are unable to participate in the meeting?

Gaining the Edge will provide the investor contact information to the manager and it will be up to both parties to follow up and schedule a meeting at a convenient time.
