Hedge Connection Launches Virtual Investor-Introduction Event Series

←go back

Financial introductory platform Hedge Connection plans to launch a series of virtual investor-introduction events, beginning January 21, 2019. The 2019 Fintroz Forum Series is designed around Hedge Connection's patented Capital Club investor-introduction service and will connect allocators to managers of various alternative investment strategies online in a targeted and efficient manner.

The inaugural event, to be held January 21-28, 2019, will be supported by The Gemini Companies (Gemini). Thirty alternative investment managers from Gemini's Galaxy Plus platform will be promoted and presented to participating allocators. During the event, connection requests will be one-way, with the control in the hands of these qualified investors. They may connect with managers in one of two ways; either by scheduling a phone meeting or requesting to be placed on a fund's distribution list. Managers have the option of accepting or declining connection requests.

Lisa Vioni, CEO and Co-Founder of Hedge Connection Inc. said, "We believe that this type of virtual event will disrupt how financial introductions have traditionally been arranged, making it easy, fast, and efficient for investors to discover new opportunities, review critical information and set up introductory meetings immediately without having to leave their office. Hedge Connection is proud to offer the patented technology platform to facilitate this information flow and next generation of financial introductions."

David Young, President of Gemini Solutions for Hedge/Alternative Funds, added, "In an age where time to market is crucial, hosting a virtual event where investors can quickly distill large amounts of intelligence about managers is ground breaking. We are pleased to partner with Hedge Connection to offer this state of the art platform to give our clients/managers a competitive advantage for growing their business."

There is no charge to participate in a Fintroz Forum Series virtual event, however interested parties must apply for consideration and be approved to participate. Hedge Connection plans on hosting at least one virtual event per quarter.
