Revolutionizing Global Investor Relations

The alternative investments landscape is shifting toward a globalized marketplace of opportunity. Where traditionally, a focus on regional or domestic markets defined the landscape; a new era has arrived, driven by powerful forces like advancing technology and the growing interconnectedness of global economies.

The desire for more diversification, rapidly emerging markets, and increasing competition are just some of the reasons investment firms are looking for opportunities in new markets around the globe. GPs have shared their optimism for this expansion, citing new opportunities abroad as noted in Dynamo’s survey of GP investors earlier in 2024. The expanding footprint will require greater focus on creating value and more tailored investor communications.

Challenges of Fundraising on a Global Scale

To compete in the competitive global landscape, GPs must keep a faster pace while focusing more intently on ways to personalize investor experience. Global outreach is not something every GP firm is ready to take on. The pain points of investor relations only grow more complex in the global environment, and pose greater risks to success. The array of challenges include:

  • Researching and identifying promising deals across various countries.
  • Fragmented financial and market data.
  • Communicating and collaborating with local partners and advisors across time zones.
  • Increased risk of errors from manual processes.
  • Greater difficulty scaling operations.

Managing these complexities on a global scale without the support of a specialized technology platform makes it increasingly difficult to meet the expectations of sophisticated investors.

Tech Capabilities Needed for Globally Scaled Outreach Efforts

Fundraising success and deal speed can be enabled with an automated CRM tool. In a recent podcast interview with Capital Allocators, Dynamo CEO Hank Boughner discussed the importance of an automated CRM in streamlining the sales process—a tool he relies on himself during frequent international travels. A CRM that automates email campaigns and outreach makes the dealmaking process more efficient.

Dynamo’s CRM enables GPs to:

  • Engage with a broad investor network through mailing campaigns.
  • Tailor fundraising outreach to satisfy investor preferences.
  • Simplify travel through event management capabilities.
  • Automate tasks and reminders to keep the whole team on track.
  • Leverage automated analytics and dashboarding for data-driven decisions.

Creating Investor Value Through Digital Engagement

Once the global relationship is secured, effective ongoing investor relations are paramount to maintaining success. As Boughner noted during the podcast, word of mouth is a powerful marketing tool that shouldn’t be overlooked, even in international markets. Taking these insights into account, GPs should be concerned about delivering consistent value to investors to expand their business through referrals and positive brand reputation.

Dynamo has carefully considered global communications challenges when developing the latest evolution of our investor relations software — Dynamo Investor Portal v3.0. The system’s redesign has brought the user experience to the forefront, delivering the ultimate digital engagement tool.

Its global communication capabilities help GPs overcome the most-cited international investor relations challenges.

  • Configurable Dashboards
    Dynamo Investor Portal v3.0 provides real-time access to fund documentation and analytics and allows GPs to tailor the user experience for each investor. When you consider all the personalization factors, such as cultural differences, investment goals, and regulatory requirements, the amount of customization required may seem overwhelming. However, Dynamo makes it easy to achieve with click-and-drag visualization components.
  • Accessibility Across Devices
    Portal users can access information across iOS, Android, and web platforms, executing functions smoothly and maintaining a consistent connection with their investments — even when on the go.
  • Advanced Security
    When working across borders, maintaining information security is a high concern. Dynamo’s cloud-based software protects sensitive documents using cutting-edge security features that keep information confidential and secure.
