A.S.A.P. Unveils Database Aimed At Hedge Fund Managers

Aug 14 2009 | 9:02am ET

A.S.A.P. Advisor Services, a marketing support and data management company, has unveiled a database registration and updating service designed specifically for single strategy hedge funds, funds of funds, and other alternative investment strategies.

The new database, HedgeQuest, was created to streamline the costly and time-consuming process of providing firm and product information to third-party data sources and institutional investment management consultants.

Andrew Saunders, managing director at Hedge Connection, noted the value of such a service. “A.S.A.P. professionals are experts in the financial data management and distribution space. They have close relationships with major industry data providers and understand the unique strengths of each. We have worked with A.S.A.P. on numerous occasions and know that they appreciate the nuances of our platform.”

“Our firm updates more than 18,000 profiles in over 60 industry databases every year on behalf of a wide range of global clients, from emerging managers to leading investment management firms; this information reaches not only investment management consultants, but also family offices, individual investors, and other asset allocators,” says Lauren Cola, president and CEO of A.S.A.P. “The idea behind HedgeQuest is to make available to the alternative investment space a very successful service that traditional money managers have benefited from for years.”
 
As part of its broader commitment to this space, the firm recently hired Jill Turner, who has more than 18 years of experience in the alternative investment industry, including due diligence, manager selection, and research. Turner spent eleven years at Goldman Sachs and began her career at Commodities Corporation.
