REMC is a boutique consulting firm founded by James Rubin. We solely focus on providing bespoke advice and capital raising assistance to meaningfully undercapitalized and emerging (pre-launch and early-stage) investment managers seeking to maximize its profile with prospective investors to launch and/or grow its capital base. Mr. Rubin has over 30 years of highly successful experience founding and managing firms in the hedge fund and private equity spaces.
The intensification of allocators’ due diligence standards has imposed significant structural, portfolio protocol, background and communication expectations upon investment managers. Most emerging manager principals have not founded or managed their own firm and possess limited experience in these areas, directly hampering capital raising performance. The dilution of focus imposed by the need to accumulate a feasible capital base, inherent investor biases against emerging managers and a brutally competitive marketplace all conspire to create dauntingly high failure rates. For managers with smaller AUM’s, low management fees limit organizational buildout and, in turn, negatively effect investor perceptions and marketing reach.
Our firm provides best practices to fill capability gaps and enhance pre-existing strengths, including organizational considerations, internal processes and documentation, marketing materials and investor messaging. These factors are grossly undervalued by many managers. Retaining marketing assistance without addressing core foundational matters is frequently an exercise in futility.
REMC’s unique differentiator is our long term experience as a manager, which informs us of solutions to maximize your message and presence, leading to meaningful outcomes in the fund-raising process.
