Hedge Connection Partners With Prime Brokerage To Provide Cap Intro Services

Nov 8 2007 | 8:08am ET

Hedge Connection, an online matchmaking service that pairs investors with hedge funds, has partnered with prime brokerage firm M. S. Howells & Co. in an effort to help its clients improve their marketing efforts.

In the deal, MSH’s clients will now have access to the Hedge Connection Hybrid product, which includes an invitation to register their funds on Hedge Connection’s networking platform. It also provides access to an investor search feature and invitations to private networking events and breakfast seminars.

"Capital introduction is often cited by hedge fund managers as the leading source of disappointment. We made a decision early on to focus on the areas where we deliver value to our clients – portfolio reporting, technology, execution services and hedge fund start-up services,” said Mark Howells, CEO of MSH. “Partnering with Hedge Connection gives our clients access to qualified investors and our team access to Lisa [Vioni] and her group that have a proven industry track record.” 
 
Vioni, president of Hedge Connection, added that, “There is considerable momentum behind our service as prime brokers and agency brokers recognize the challenges and conflicts of developing internal capital introduction capabilities. Hedge Connection can help augment an existing cap-intro platform or act as a cap-intro alternative for prime brokers.”
