Is your investment sales team meeting its goals?

  • Do you spend more time researching who to call on than you spend in meetings?
  • Are you constantly being promised clean and accurate data that never materializes?
  • Are you relying on someone who isn’t from the fundraising world to provide your team with accounts and contacts?
  • Are you tired of counting on your sales team alone to update your Salesforce data?

At Dakota, we provide the resources and institutional investor lists you need to connect with more allocators and set more meetings.

The investment sales tools you need to help your firm grow

Maximize your time, set meeting with the right people, and learn how to stay up to date on industry insights with Dakota solutions.

What is Dakota Live? 

Register for a Dakota Live! Call to see exactly how we create content on allocators, and ensure you always know who to call.

The Dakota Live! Call is a live event connecting investment salespeople with leading allocators.

Each call provides insight into institutional investment allocators — who they are, what they think, what they’re investing in, and details about their investment platform. The call covers everything you need to know about an allocator before meeting with them.


Dakota provides the world's leading investment firms with information to help them win more business


What our clients are saying:

"Marketplace provides the most actionable data I have ever encountered in my 30+ years in the business. It is abundantly clear that Marketplace is built by salespeople for salespeople. I am continuously amazed at its rapid prospect expansion and its real-time updates on the appropriate decision makers. It is an incredible time-saver that lets you concentrate on selling, not researching prospects."

Tod Perry

Managing Director, Business Development, Algorithmic Investment Models


"I will now, tomorrow, and forever, be a brand testimonial for you and the platform. If I am not with this firm at any point, it will be a requirement for any new employer prior to hiring that they invest in the platform. Honest assessment. Please ask me as many times as you need. If they ever want someone on the call to clearly articulate why this changed my sixteen-year career, I am your guy." 

Geoffrey Irungu

Portfolio Manager, Stephens Investment Management Group


From the helpful insights on all types of firms and contacts to the Dakota Live! calls, Dakota Marketplace has enhanced the capabilities of our Sales and Distribution team. Our team has been able to utilize all this data we previously didn’t have access to. The mapping tool and pre-made reports by the Dakota team also have made our day-to-day scheduling and targeting that much easier.
