Launching Funds in Under-Capitalized Regions

Many regions have little or no investment capital readily available, but the fundamentals for a fund may still be present. In the absence of an existing local model, how can a prospective fund pull existing resources together, attract the right staff and launch successfully? This session will feature experienced investment practitioners discussing their efforts, challenges and successes in marshaling this funding.
