An investment officer plays an important role in the fundraising market. Investment agents are recruited by investment funds (for example. B private equity funds, hedge funds, real estate funds or other alternative assets) to obtain capital quickly and efficiently, what they get by introducing fund managers to qualified investors. Under normal circumstances, the broker waives commissions when the issuer of the offer terminates the contract. However, a tail determination entitles the agent to a commission after the end of the offer if the offer is made within a specified period of time, usually less than one year. This provision must be included in the agreement to be valid. The real estate agent is compensated by the successful placement of the fund with the investor that was introduced by the agent. The agent`s remuneration, from about 2% to 2.5%, is usually a percentage of the new money raised for the fund. Some agents collect a portion of their cash costs and invest the balance in the fund that brings the interests of the agent and fund investors into line with and also reduces the prepayment by the Fund. Most of the provisions in a mediation agreement can be negotiated between the investment officer and the issuer, with compensation being the most negotiated clause. Most of the allowances are paid in the form of commissions on the amount collected; However, mediation officers can negotiate for more.
