For the past few months we have opened up the Boardroom to fund managers. As we enter the next era of Hedge Connection, where the focus is on making connections and integrating all means of social onto our foundation of hedge fund information and events, we invite any qualified person to be part of the site.
Today we released a nice little feature where those fund managers on the Boardroom side of the site can connect their account to one of their funds on the database side.
Once connected (found on the Settings page), your company name on your profile will link directly to your fund database profile page. This feature flexes your marketing muscle on the site by facilitating Investors, and your Followers, in getting to your fund information as quickly and easily as possible.
For example, if you make an Update with commentary on the market and intrigue the interest of an Investor, they can skip the process of having to search our database of 7,000 funds for yours, and instead click through directly from your profile page.
We invite all hedge funds, fund of funds and CTAs to be on both sides of Hedge Connection. While only one person can manage the fund database listing account, multiple people from a firm can have accounts on the Boardroom side and should all be linking their profiles to the database listing. There is no charge to join either side of the site. Note, Boardroom accounts and Fund Database accounts are unique and require different emails/login credentials.
