We are pleased to announce the release of Hedge Connection’s latest features . We have propelled the traditional hedge fund database into the modern world. Investors can now use the familiar social tools (as found on Twitter, LinkedIn etc) to gain a deeper, more powerful insight into our Morningstar database of thousands of funds. At the center of the social activity will be the Boardroom – an area to discover new funds and participate in the conversation with other Investors. Registration is free and open to qualified investors.
Managers that have their fund posted on our database now have an extraordinary opportunity to see who is interested in their fund and interact with them.
Below are some key features in this new and exciting database.
Each fund listing on the database now has a Follow button and a Followers area. Let others know of your interest in a particular fund see others that share your interest – and Follow them as well.
At the center of the interactions is the Boardroom. This area contains the activity streams of funds and investors that you are following. It’s an area of discovery – find new funds, see what others are saying, participate in the conversation.
Each Hedge Connection member has a profile. Here you can see what funds they are Following, which Investors they are Following, their investment philosophy and biography.
Integral to the Boardroom experience are our Executives. These are professionals in the hedge fund industry, selected by Hedge Connection, to lead the conversation and activity in the Boardroom.
Fund Interaction with Investors
Now, for the first time on any industry database, a fund manager can interact directly with investors on the site. When an investor Follows a fund, the manager will receive an email notification. The manager can now log into their account and post updates on their fund, such as performance updates or views on the market. Investors receive these updates as part of their Activity Stream in the Boardroom.
