Third-party marketing and consulting firm Pinnacle Alternative Investments is launching its second hedge fund investor database product of the year, following on the heels of the introduction of its emerging manager investor database in March.
Pinnacle’s Global Macro-CTA Investor Database consists of institutional investors that have in the past and/or currently looking to invest in hedge fund managers that offer similar strategies. The GMID includes family offices, funds of funds, endowments, wealth managers, private banks and other investors that have traditionally been open to allocating to global macro managers and commodity trading advisors. Additionally, Pinnacle will offer guidance on how best to employ the database and on a case-by-case basis, provide strategic introductions on behalf of qualified managers.
The new database will only be made available to hedge fund managers and CTAs that are deemed “suitable” given their historical trading performance, strategy and style, professional pedigree and business model profile.
