TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kyro Capital, a Toronto-based independent consulting firm to the hedge fund industry, today announced that co-founder Jordan Wimmer will be a panelist at the World Alternative Investment Summit Canada (WAISC). Wimmer will join a discussion on third-party marketing and capital-raising in today’s volatile investment climate.
“It’s a tough time for alternative investment managers trying to compete against the largest global asset managers,” said Jordan Wimmer of Kyro Capital. “The largest funds are getting larger and the market is getting more saturated. This is a topic that is important to anyone looking to increase their investor base and is considering the use of a third-party marketing partner.”
WAISC 2015 will be held September 15 -17, 2015 at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Canada. WAISC is Canada’s premier alternative investment event, bringing together hedge fund managers, exempt market product providers and dealers, investors, advisors, financiers, service providers, and industry experts.
Wimmer’s skills and expertise in sales and marketing strategy, capital-raising, and investor relations has been honed over a decade of working with dozens of alternative investment funds spanning multiple investment strategies. She is specialized in the entire fundraising process: from product development, market testing, identification of qualified institutional investors; to road-show presentations, execution of the final investment, and ongoing investor outreach.
Before co-founding Kyro, Wimmer was a Director at DQN Global Capital Partners, a London-based third-party marketer and a Partner at Nomos Capital Partners, where she ran the European capital-raising desk out of London. Jordan began her career on the buy-side at EFG Bank in Monte-Carlo as an Associate on the Hedge-Fund Advisory team.
