Eurekahedge Fund Data Now Available Through IRHalo

Sep 15 2017 | 9:39pm ET

Hedge fund data provider Eurekahedge and investor relations platform IRHalo have inked an agreement in which subscribers to Eurekahedge’s fund data will be able to incorporate it into investor relations activities using IRHalo, while clients of IRHalo will be able to use Eurekahedge funds data as part of the analytics and reporting they provide to end investors.

The IRHalo platform is configured to support the IR needs of small to mid-sized funds that do not have a full-time investor relations role within their teams, according to a statement. It incorporates many recognized best practices in hedge funds IR and allowing early stage funds to deploy reporting as good as that used by larger firms.

“Subscribers to Eurekahedge data are now able to draw directly on that data and its associated benchmarks when providing analytics and reports via IRHalo,” said Stuart Fieldhouse, communications director with IRHalo. “It can be very important for fund managers to be able to illustrate to investors how they compare against the wider hedge funds universe and closer competitors. IRHalo allows them to do this with a high degree of automation, and in a way their investors will appreciate.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with IRHalo on this successful integration project,” said Alex Mearns, CEO of Eurekahedge, in the statement. “[We] believe the sophistication of the IRHalo platform coupled with Eurekahedge’s data will be a compelling combination for investors and fund managers wishing to access superior hedge and alternative fund data for benchmarking, peer group comparisons and analysis.”

IRHalo, which is part of communications and technology specialist Trimaldi, provides hedge funds with an automated and secure solution for reporting to their clients. It features a flexible CRM and the automatic updating of fact sheets and websites with the latest performance and analytics information. 

Eurekahedge data is available immediately to licensees of IRHalo who are already Eurekahedge subscribers. In addition, existing users of IRHalo will be able to subscribe to Eurekahedge if they would like to use its data to support their own reporting activities, the statement added.

Launched by financial professionals in 2001, Eurekahedge specializes in hedge fund databases covering North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America, Eurekahedge’s alternative asset funds databases track as many as than 220 data points on more than 24,000 funds.
