Our Proven Approach
General partners must be well-positioned in today’s crowded and highly competitive fundraising marketplace. Our seasoned team works closely with our clients to differentiate each offering and execute a tailored marketing plan. MCP takes a rigorous approach to each phase of the sales process:
MCP will conduct formal due diligence acting as our clients’ “toughest LP” well before investor meetings begin. Our detailed review of the team and track record enhances the positioning of relative strengths and pre-empts investor concerns.
We advise clients on market conditions and product positioning and help the road team hit the ground running at launch through meticulous preparation for the market. MCP works extensively with our clients to tell their story in their own words, but in a manner that speaks to LP concerns and reflects current market dynamics.
MCP has extensive experience creating and refining marketing materials including PPM, presentation, teaser, DDQ and data room. Project management teams provide ongoing reporting and status calls to discuss progress and refine marketing strategy and tactics throughout the fundraise.
Our veteran sales team uses its broad and deep network of institutional investors to schedule highly qualified meetings. Through attentive follow-up and management of the sales process, our distribution professionals help build GP / LP relationships while staying tightly involved from due diligence through to closing.
MCP campaign managers coordinate with client and MCP road teams to facilitate efficient travel. We provide detailed pre-meeting notes and coordinate investor requests to ensure high impact investor meetings and prompt follow up.
Our full team remains closely involved through RFP and DDQ processes, scheduling onsite meetings, advising on terms and legal documentation and facilitating organized closings.
