Irwin Katsof, President of Katsof Consulting http://www.katsof.com announced today that the U.S. Commerce Department Certified Trade Mission to Brazil will take place between March 23-25,2015.
The Trade Mission will bring fifteen preeminent U.S. Private Equity, Venture Capital and Real Estate Private Equity Fund managers to Brazil to meet with the leading Brazilian Institutional Investors, family offices and high net worth individuals. The goal of the Certified Trade Mission is to help U.S. Fund managers raise equity from limited partners outside the U.S.A.
In a confidential audit performed for the U.S. Commerce department in December 2013, it was announced that in the prior three years GP participants raised $650 million dollars from foreign LPs on these global missions. The U.S. Certified Trade mission program is a cost effective and efficient opportunity to meet foreign LP investors.
Three hundred and fifty different U.S. PE and VC Funds have attended at least one Trade Mission in the past three years and fifteen of the top one hundred U.S. Funds attended one in the past three years and over thirty percent of the Funds returned for a second Trade mission.
The Certified Trade Mission is not merely a conference. It is a tightly structured and a highly focused fund raising event intended to offer U.S. private equity, venture capital, real estate and infrastructure fund managers the chance to meet potential LPs in Brazil from the largest Institutions and family offices.
The U. S. Commerce department will recruit the foreign LP’s and the U.S. Embassy is the convener of stature for this important bi-lateral Trade event.
U.S. GP’s need to apply to attend and attendees are accepted on a rolling basis.
