Seeding platform IMQubator has launched the IMQ Capital Introduction Network, a platform with its members connecting potential investors to the IMQubator funds through independent ‘agents’ – third party and private placement marketers.
The platform provides a system to its members to monitor the status of interaction between the IMQ Cap Intro members and the IMQubator funds.
Jeroen Tielman (pictured), CEO and Founder of IMQubator (IMQ), says: “This is part of our continuing effort to assist the IMQubator seeded funds with their business development, and in introducing the global institutional industry to the new generation of hedge funds, IMQ has taken the inventive step of creating a proprietary, online intermediary network, whereby chosen agents can promote our underlying managers to their respective investor contacts. The system has been designed to streamline and add transparency to all interaction between agents and managers. With a number of best-of-breed agents already on board, we see this as the start of a very exciting development indeed.”
Capitalised in January 2009 with EUR250m from APG, the asset manager for Dutch pensions giant Stichting Pensioenfonds ABP, Amsterdam-based IMQ is leading the way for a new generation of investment managers.
Established by Tielman, now a 25-year veteran of the global institutional industry, IMQ offers an institutional platform where professional investors can gain exposure to emerging managers through the IMQubator multi-manager fund.
