What is CEM Capital?
CEM Capital is the investment division of Capital Event Management Ltd. – Our mandate is to take advantage of investment opportunities and grow our capital through investing in various opportunities presented by issuers at our shows. We have been actively investing and supporting clients over the years and now because of the capital base created we decided to hire a dedicated professional to manage our AUM. The CEM partners decided to bring Ryan Iverson (see bio) on board to be the dedicated investment manager and trader. We encourage each issuer to ensure Ryan is up to speed on all significant corporate events as we will be looking for opportunities to generate superior risk adjusted returns and share in the success of our clients. CEM Capital is a generalist and agnostic to different industries.
