Imatchative targets institutional investors with online AltX hedge fund search solution

Imatchative, founded and led by prime brokerage industry veteran Sam Hocking, has launched AltX, an online solution for ensuring institutional investors are connecting with the most appropriate hedge funds.

AltX is a cloud-based, two‐sided automated network that harnesses proprietary algorithms and embraces a behavioural finance methodology to optimise the search for compatibility among hedge funds with institutional investors.
 
The AltX online platform facilitates a more efficient and less expensive capital allocation process through a combination of Big Data, intelligent analytics and intuitive searches.
 
AltX also incorporates behavioural science to assess the risk tolerance, investment goals and preferences of chief investment officers and other institutional team members to inform the fund selection process in a way that leads to better targeting and more sustainable investment relationships. Similarly, AltX enables hedge funds to gain deeper insights into the non-conscious influencers shaping their investment process and perceptions in the marketplace.
 
“With the launch of AltX, we are innovating investor due diligence and the capital introductions process in the hedge fund marketplace, which has lagged behind the business-to-consumer sector in the convergence of science and technology,” says Sam Hocking, co-founder and CEO of Imatchative. “We see infinite opportunities for AltX to advance decision‐making, transparency and engagement among hedge funds and investors.”
 
The subscription-based, online platform features 16,000 screenable domestic and international funds. AltX subscribers can assess funds using 30 key investment criteria and compare fund performance to any benchmark, including those they customise. The search capabilities allow investors to research hedge fund characteristics that apply to both well‐known and lesser-known funds, creating greater parity in the investor-to-fund matching process.
 
“Our world class team of scientists, academics, technologists and Wall Street experts has applied a Silicon Valley approach to a Wall Street problem,” says Hocking. “We believe AltX’s critical intelligence and analytics will become the pre‐eminent resource for those investors and hedge funds seeking the most effective and efficient outcomes.”
