Yesterday I blogged about cosmetic changes that the HedgeCo team is making on the HedgeCo.Net home page, today we’re going to take it a step farther and solicit your input for future feature additions & the general direction of the site.
As many of you know, HedgeCo Networks has been working with Hedge Funds for the last 7 years. Our website was one of the first Hedge Fund database portals and remains the largest and most trafficked independent Hedge Fund site on the web.
With the underlying current of the Internet changing from traditional websites towards the use of social media platforms, we wanted to touch base with our community and ask you what features attract you the most when you’re looking for your Hedge Fund related data.
The unique goals of HedgeCo.Net have always been two-pronged:
1. Create a portal which would create a new level of transparency between Hedge Funds and investors. This information is meant for accredited investors only.
2. Provide breaking news and other educational (or “Hedgeducational“) resources for the general public.
Because of our two-pronged approach we have 2 distinct sets of users. Our Hedge Fund database users include Accredited Investors, Hedge Fund Managers, and other Industry Professionals. The general public, which use the open areas of our site consist of: Journalists, Researchers, Service Providers, Students, and other interested parties.
Our team has worked continually to enhance the database section of the website by introducing enhanced fund profiles, robust searching, watch lists, etc. However, the general public has not seen as many enhancements to the outside portions of the websites.
HedgeCo currently has a presence on LinkedIn, Facebook (fan page and group), and Twitter. We understand that a lot is currently going on in this realm, please let us know if you think of any new features we can add or new ways we can bring our content to the social network.
BLOGGING and COLUMNISTS
The HedgeCo Hedge Fund Blog currently features authors who represent various segments of the hedge fund industry. We are open to accepting new columnists, if anyone wants to contribute to our blogs please contact me, Aaron Wormus at (561) 835 8690 and we can discuss.
We have been publishing hedge fund news on HedgeCo.net since our inception. Our news section is one of the most trafficked portions of the site. We are currently working on new ways to display our news, but are open to new ideas and suggestions.
We have a weekly & daily newsletter which members of HedgeCo.Net can subscribe to. We also publish our news via Twitter, and various Facebook and LinkedIn groups.
If you have news you would like to see published, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
At the end of 2008 we started hosting monthly hedge fund social networking events in NYC. Networking events require more planning and resources than the other items in this list, but if you are in an area which has potential for a networking event. Please let us know and we will be happy to discuss it with you.
