For General Partners

Group of Business People Meeting ConceptsDiamond Dragon Advisors does more than just raise institutional capital. We identify and partner with a select number of top-tier alternative asset managers (GPs) to help them build businesses. Whether a high-potential first time fund or a seasoned manager, our focus is to develop long-term alternative asset management businesses and the relationships needed to sustain them. We undertake thorough due diligence of managers, similar to that undertaken by limited partners in manager selection. Not only does this ensure that we represent the highest quality managers, but also it provides us with a complete understanding of the fund and the manager, which is essential for the success of an institutional fundraise.

We offer the following services to a small number of general partners and provide hands-on senior management partnership in every step of execution:

Advisory

Hands of business peopleWe provide customized fundraising preparatory services covering marketing, strategy, due diligence, branding and positioning for a manager to be able to attract and retain global institutional capital effectively. The time spent on these tailored and pro-active planning services to get GPs prepared for the scrutiny of the institutional market is an essential element to capital-raising success. An advisory assignment may be offered on a stand-alone basis or as part
of a placement assignment.

Placement

These include, but are not limited to, pension funds, superannuation funds, sovereign wealth funds, fund of funds, endowments, insurance companies, supranationals, corporates and family offices. As Diamond Dragon Advisors is a regional specialist with an on-the-ground presence, we are able to target qualified limited partners more effectively ensuring the best use of our GPs’ time and overall a more effective fundraising process.
