Hedge Connection sees investor success for members
Hedge Connection, an internet-based research and networking platform for hedge funds and qualified investors, has provided an update on the progress of its hedge fund members following allocations to credit, global macro and PIPES strategies from investors through the internet platform earlier this year or from the first annual networking event held in June.
Since its launch in 2005, Hedge Connection has enjoyed a 90 per cent renewal rate among its Club Hedge members. Says president Lisa Vioni: 'Hedge Connection's internet platform and our proven event format provides managers a powerful, integrated marketing tool to help establish a fund's profile and build relationships with active allocators.
'As members of Hedge Connection, investors gain direct exposure to high quality niche managers, while hedge funds build important relationships with investors that are critical in building their business. Receiving an allocation is a long cycle process. We are pleased that we could help our members approach marketing more efficiently.'
Alana Aldag, a partner with Cabezon Capital Management, says: 'While it is easy for us to identify large investors with known macro mandates, Hedge Connection provided a link to pools of capital located off the hedge fund industry's beaten track. In particular, we were able to get in touch directly with family offices who explicitly needed exposure to our unique take on macro.'
Hedge Connection is a web-based platform that offers hedge funds direct access to pre-qualified, opt-in investors that are actively allocating to hedge funds. Investor members join for free and can review videos and presentation material from hedge fund members.
