TIGER 21 Expands to the Emerald CitySeattle will be 12th locale in North America for the high-net-worth peer learning group and the second in Pacific Northwest
Seattle, WA (March 20, 2013) ‚Äì TIGER 21, the premier peer-to-peer learning group for high-net-worth investors in North America, has announced that it is forming a Seattle group. When the group launches, TIGER 21 will be established in 12 cities across the United States and Canada with more than 200 Members, who collectively control over $19 billion in investable assets.
Leading TIGER 21’s efforts in Seattle will be Nancy Reid, who joined TIGER 21 as Director of Membership in 2010. In that role, she helped recruit more than 50 private investors to groups in New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal. Reid received a MBA from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and spent several years at a major Wall Street investment bank, advising business owners in the first generation of wealth creation.
“The Seattle region has a significant concentration of wealth created through the new economy, especially fueled by Internet and clean technology development. The entrepreneurs behind these companies can certainly benefit from the TIGER 21 process that we’ve fine-tuned over the past 14 years,” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, TIGER 21 Founder and Chairman. “Nancy Reid is perfectly suited to spearhead our effort in Seattle. Through her previous role as Director of Membership, she has shown an understanding of the needs of high-net-worth individuals and how best to address them.”
Reid, who resides in Seattle, will be leading recruitment efforts for the new group and chair the group meetings when they commence later this year. As part of the effort to attract Members, TIGER 21 will hold candidate meetings in Seattle on April 25th and May 23rd.
“TIGER 21 has grown from an informal 10-person club to an international network with 18 groups across North America and is now considered the world’s preeminent intelligence and learning network for high-net-worth investors. Early feedback indicates that there are manyqualified Member-candidates in the Seattle region, who understand the value of the collective intelligence that TIGER 21 fosters through its peer groups,” said Reid.The mainstay of TIGER 21 is the monthly group meetings that aim to improve Members’ investment acumen through critique and coaching as well as exploring common issues of wealth preservation, estate planning and family dynamics.A critical part of the Member experience is the Portfolio Defense ‚Äì where individual Members give a confidential disclosure and rational defense of their investment portfolio, followed by candid feedback from other Members of the group. The process is being replicated to provide a similarly enlightening experience based on Members’ estate planning and philanthropic activities.
TIGER 21’s Presenter Program complements each meeting by providing access to top finance experts that often introduce Members to a variety of investment opportunities, as well as experts that focus on other issues. In addition, many of the world’s most prominent investors have addressed TIGER 21 as part of its Headliner Series, including George Soros, Carl Icahn, Izzy Englander, Steven Schwarzman, Mohammed El-Erian, David Rubenstein, Jim Rogers, T. Boone Pickens, and William Ackman, among a long list of others.
In addition to her MBA from Dartmouth, Reid has a BA from Yale University and a Grand Diplome from the French Culinary Institute. She has served on the board of Globalhood, Family House, an American Red Cross chapter, and the MCO Foundation. She was appointed by the President of Dartmouth College to serve on the Advisory Committee on Investor Responsibility for the Dartmouth endowment in 2006-2007. In 2010, she directed strategy for a $100 million capital campaign for a nonprofit organization in New York City.
