MyFundFinder launches online community to connect hedge funds with investors
BarclayHedge and Global Fund Technologies have launched MyFundFinder.com, a capital introduction platform designed to match up hedge fund managers with institutional and high net worth investors.
The web-based platform, whose IT underpinnings have been developed by Global Fund Technologies, aims to provide hedge fund managers with a simple yet sophisticated capital raising tool as well as to help investors to conduct research on funds and enable them to contact managers online.
MyFundFinder.com enables investors to search data supplied by BarclayHedge on more than 1,900 hedge funds, funds of funds and managed futures funds to match funds with their investment needs. A customisable, Adobe Flex/Flash-based tool, it allows investors to navigate, filter and drill down to 122 data points.
'Investors will benefit from an enhanced level of transparency on a wide range of funds as well as the ability to create their own personal watch lists to follow the performance of funds in which they have interest,' says BarclayHedge president Sol Waksman. 'This platform simplifies the initial stage of the screening process and allows investors to move at their own pace when considering an allocation to an alternative investment manager.'
MyFundFinder.com offers alternative investment managers, who pay a membership fee to be listed on the site, exposure to investors who can contact them directly. Managers also receive statistics on aggregate platform usage and industry peer comparisons.
MyFundFinder.com also provides access to hedge fund asset flow reports and insights on industry trends produced monthly by Trim Tabs Investment Research and BarclayHedge. Additional features include industry discussion forums and fund launch information.
Founded as the Barclay Group in 1985, BarclayHedge tracks and analyses the performance of 6,824 hedge funds, funds of hedge funds and managed futures programmes and maintains 18 proprietary hedge fund and eight managed futures indices, providing data to clients including institutional investors, brokerage firms and private banks.
Global Fund Technologies, a provider of hedge fund IT solutions whose principals have extensive hedge fund capital-raising experience, is an affiliate of Spectrum Global Fund Administration, which specialises in providing daily portfolio and performance transparency reporting to institutional investors and has been an administrator to the alternative investment industry for the past 10 years.
