Hedge Fund Blogs From HedgeCo.Net


Touching base with the Hedge Fund community

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.

Regardless of whether you use our Database section or our News & Educational sections we would appreciate your feedback on what you would like to see more of on HedgeCo.Net.
