Global Virtual Cap Intro 2021

Monday, Aril 26 - Friday, May 7, 2021


Gaining the Edge - Global Virtual Cap Intro 2021 seeks to be the largest virtual capital introduction event in the alternative investment industry. Our first virtual cap intro event held in October 2020 had approximately 1,000 hedge fund professionals participate. We expect our spring 2021 event to be larger. Gaining the Edge - Virtual Cap Intro leverages the success of Gaining the Edge - Hedge Fund Conferences, which sold out all six of its events, and Gaining the Edge - Hedge Fund Educational Webinar Series, which has had over 4,500 hedge fund professionals register, including over 1,800 investors/allocators. ​Similar to our 2020 event, this event will donate a large portion of its profits to select charities that benefit at-risk youth. To date, Gaining the Edge LLC* and Agecroft Partners have donated over $2.5 million dollars to these organizations.

Agecroft Partners, selected 12 years in a row by HFM Week and/or Hedgeweek as the top hedge fund marketing firm in the industry, will be helping to make the event a success. The success of any capital introduction event starts with the quality of investors. High quality investors attract high quality managers, which increases the level of participation from each. Agecroft is uniquely positioned within the industry to help with this event, because their primary business has developed a strong reputation and enduring relationships with institutional investors around the world. In addition, they have created one of, if not the largest, investor networks in the industry.
