July 23, 2014, NEW YORK, NY – Hedge Connection, the hedge fund industry’s foremost matchmaker, announced the recent launch of content loaded resources for its members to strengthen relationship building opportunities. As the most widely recognized and innovative ecosystem of its kind for the industry, Hedge Connection has enhanced its patented online platform by building out a centralized content hub that now offers its members access to industry-relevant thought leadership resources such as white papers, research reports, manager videos, intelligence briefings and fund-specific materials.
“Hedge Connection has created an unparalleled library of searchable content for our members to explore timely issues regarding the regulatory front, economic briefings, sector-specific research by experts and manager-specific materials including video interviews and other topics. We believe that aggregating this type of information completely enhances the investor’s experience, offers transparency in a traditionally opaque industry and encourages real interaction that will lead to building powerful relationships using Hedge Connection’s proprietary tools,” commented Hedge Connection CEO Lisa Vioni in a video interview featured here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
Hedge Connection actively disseminates a rapidly growing range of relevant content from industry professionals and research sources including:
- White papers and thought pieces covering such topics as Cyber Security, Medical Break Through Products, the SEC and Social Media, among others;
- Intelligence briefings by McAlinden Research Partners, providing actionable global investment trends, data and themes;
- Investor demand trends for UCITS strategies via ML Capital’s Barometer Report and FINsearches’ exclusive Investor Allocation Report detailing institutional allocations;
- Impact investing: primer for investors with case study on renewable energy.
Members of Hedge Connection can not only access an enormous database of easily searchable documents, they can also “Follow” the fund or member who posted the document and get access to the fund’s entire profile within the database. “The goal has been to make the information gathering process seamless for the investor,” said Rob Arthurs, Hedge Connection’s Co-founder. “Access to exclusive reports and thought leadership content is a powerful tool for our members to build bridges and help energize relationships, as we discovered while preparing for the Global Fund Forum, Hedge Connection’s annual June networking conference.”
