Manager Development and our network of capital providers supports the world's leading emerging manager platform
initial screening and due diligence
No Red Flags Allowed
Ashton Global seeks to place ethical and exceptional investment managers with institutional seed capital providers. Simply put, our mission is to "bring good people together".
We perform rigorous background and reference checks and look for anything that could be a red flag for investors.
Ashton Global acts as a "referee" to ensure that only the highest-quality managers and capital providers have access to our platform.
Investor Meetings and capital introductions
Meeting Preparation and Mentoring
Once we are comfortable with a manager's background and investment strategy, our consultants mentor managers on how to successfully articulate their investment strategy to institutional investors.
We provide fund presentations, marketing materials and conference call preparation to facilitate seed capital transactions.
This stage of the process usually takes one to three months depending on the experience of the manager.
Scrutinizing the investment strategy
Emerging managers with at least $500,000 of assets invested in a "niche strategy" are encouraged to apply. We evaluate all types of investment strategies and we operate globally. In short, we look at everything. From power trading in Central Europe, to private equity in Africa, to real estate and venture capital in Asia, we have potential seed capital providers that may be interested. The investment strategies that garner the most interest from our investor base are niche strategies with small capacities and in a jurisdiction with a stable rule of law.
