Hedge Connection Inc. (“Hedge Connection”), the first web based investor introduction service available to hedge funds, in strategic partnership with Hedge Video a film and video production house dedicated to serving the hedge fund, private equity and venture capital industries, today announces the sale of its first Fund IRV.
The Fund IRV is a 15 minute, professionally produced video specifically designed to profile hedge funds and their managers. A Fund IRV enables a fund manager to describe his investment strategy and philosophy in his own words. Hedge Funds can greatly expand the breadth of their marketing program reaching global investors who can view the video on the fund’s password protected website and through the secure website http://www.hedgeconnection.com.
Andrew Stotland, Senior Director of Sales & Marketing at Pirate Capital, LLC said, “The Fund IRV is an effective way to introduce Pirate Capital’s investment team and strategy to potential investors. Our video communicates the more personalized aspects of fund management to a degree we couldn’t achieve through traditional presentations alone.”
Commenting on the news, Josh Blumenthal from Hedge Video said, “We are pleased to have Pirate Capital launch the first Fund IRV. Fund IRVs bring the management and key personnel to life and enable investors to become familiar with the people driving the strategy. We expect this to become a standard marketing tool within the hedge fund industry."
Lisa Vioni, the founder and President of Hedge Connection Inc., said, “Offering the Fund IRV to our investor members is a natural extension of Hedge Connection. Despite rapid growth over the last 5 years, hedge fund investing remains a people business. The Fund IRV allows our investor members to hear the fund manager describe the strategy and move quickly through the due diligence process.”
