Whether called family offices or ultra high net worth individuals, this subset of the LP world are significant investors in private equity -- but they’re also often elusive and difficult to approach.


Family offices are far more diverse in size and scope than many PE professionals realize.  Investable assets can range from $25 million to $25 billion, and take many forms, such as a diversified portfolio resembling an endowment or institutional pension plan, or else a portfolio that is tied to a significant family operating business generating annual cash flow that can be deployed into new investments.


          And while family offices may be secretive, they’re approachable when you research

          your targets, do your homework, and present yourself properly.

          It’s relationships that are the key to getting access, and these can not necessarily be

          cultivated overnight.


And the proven route to reaching these capital sources begins at The Capital Roundtable’s full-day encore conference, filled with all-new content, on Thursday, October 13, in New York --


Raising Private Equity Funds

From Family Offices & Wealthy Individuals --

Building Capital By Building Relationships


What’s more, you won’t have to look hard to find a special savings rate.  By signing up now for this conference, you can take advantage of our Early Bird Discount -- offering generous savings of $400 for every attendee!


In today’s investment environment, many family offices have become overly cautious about committing to new private equity partnerships.  Many others are overinvested in the asset class due to lower levels of distributions… and all are extremely selective about whom they’ll meet with and whom they’ll consider as a potential new GP.


The better the job you can do in determining what each family office is interested in doing -- including philanthropic ideals, heritage values, and emotional sector interest -- the better your chances of achieving success.  


We’ll Help You Find -- And Capitalize On -- Your Sweet Spot


While the family office market may seem inscrutable, there are similarities of approach among family offices of all sizes -- and even between U.S. and international offices.


For example, there is more emotion within the family office marketplace than you may expect, and the savviest managers are able to use this to their advantage.  A particular family office may have an exceedingly high interest in healthcare due to its heritage or its philanthropic endowments.  Or it may gravitate to an entirely different sector due to historical interest.


Tailoring your prospecting to family offices whose interests closely match your strategies will increase the likelihood of a direct hit.  Unlike heavily tactical institutions, family offices often invest without rigid adherence to an asset allocation policy or sector-specific exposure if they see strategic value in having a relationship with a fund.


By attending this conference, you’ll have an insider’s view of this potentially rich market.  You’ll discover which approaches work better than others, how to present yourself in the best light, and how to establish yourself where you may not speak the language.

For example, you may also wish to consider finding a placement agent, especially in breaking into overseas markets.  Yet this carries both advantages and disadvantages -- and attracting the attention of a strong placement agent who can enhance your credibility is not always easy.


          If you’re a general partner of a new or existing fund, at this conference you’ll gain

          sophisticated insights into how the family office market is structured, how investments

          decisions are made, discover what terms you need to offer family office managers and

          wealthy individuals, and learn how to establish a more credible marketing effort to

          approach and win commitments to a new fund. 


          And if you’re involved with a family office, you’ll hear how other sophisticated family

          offices and key gatekeepers are approaching their private equity commitments and

          what adjustments they are making to their strategic asset allocation models to     

          navigate today’s challenging investment climate.


To serve as chair of this encore conference on Thursday, October 13, in New York, we’re pleased to welcome back Daniel C. Lubin, chairman of Upsher Asset Management in New York City -- a family investment firm structured around a diversified portfolio of global investments.  Daniel is also a founder and managing partner of Radius Ventures, a private equity fund focused on venture growth investing in the healthcare sector.


Daniel earned a BS cum laude in foreign service from the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service and an MBA with honors from Harvard Business School.


Sound Guidance From 20 Family Office Specialists


Along with Daniel, you’ll hear from prominent family office managers, GPs working with family office managers and wealthy individuals, plus PE industry specialists in making fundraising presentations, preparing pitch books, negotiating GP/LP agreements and arranging deal structures.  Four brand-new panel presentations will help you display your uniqueness and raise the funds you need for a more successful 2012.


Register now to get the answers to the real-world issues on investors’ minds --


  • How has the recent debt ceiling negotiation and S&P downgrade affected how family offices and wealthy individuals are treating the alternative asset marketplace?
  • What middle-market sectors seem to be most attractive to family offices and wealthy individuals today?
  • What are some of the main challenges that affect fundraising from family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • How do family offices in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America behave differently from those in the U.S.?
  • What are the pros and cons of using placement agents for reaching family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • Are family offices and wealthy individuals more flexible or less flexible today in choosing funds for their long-term asset allocation needs?
  • What are the best ways to locate family office managers, and how do you secure introductions?
  • How quickly do family office managers usually expect to see a return on their investments?
  • What presentation materials best help family office professionals assess the value of your opportunity?
  • What key practices should PE GPs follow in meeting family offices’ needs for transparency?
  • What new SEC rules on the horizon may affect family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • And much, much more.


Mingle With The Masters Of Family Office Fundraising


Connecting with your counterparts is one of the day’s highlights, and this conference includes plenty of time when you can meet fellow attendees and featured speakers -- including session breaks and an open lunch.  You’ll be able to leave this conference with a full appointment book and a full measure of action steps.


You should attend this conference if you are a --

  • Emerging manager looking to raise your first fund.
  • Experienced GP ready to cast your net wider for potential investors.
  • GP wanting to learn how best to pitch to family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Family office manager seeking benchmarks to gauge your performance.

  • Attorney or advisor involved with family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Placement agent seeking new sources for closing young funds.
