IntraLinks launches Investor Portals for alternative fund managers
IntraLinks has launched a cloud-based investor communication platform, IntraLinks Investor Portals, designed to allow hedge funds, private equity and real estate managers to better differentiate their brands, meet the transparency demands of institutional investors and compete effectively for assets.
Scalable, secure, and easy to use, the Investor Portals platform will be premiered at two alternative investment trade shows, SuperReturn International 2013 in Berlin on 26 February and at the iGlobal Real Estate Private Equity Summit on 6 March.
"As institutional investors continue to allocate to alternative investments, the rules of engagement - marketing, reporting and client service- are changing quickly," says Andre Boreas, director of product marketing-alternative investments at IntraLinks. "We believe the IntraLinks Investor Portals platform will be a critical tool for fund managers to help meet these challenges."
"Having used IntraLinks for investor communication for more than ten years, we were excited to hear about the Investor Portals product and the next evolution of the IntraLinks platform," says Adam Weinstein, managing director at New Mountain Capital, a USD9bn multi-strategy investment firm located in New York. "Utilising a best-in-class marketing and client reporting solution such as the new Investor Portals product will be vital to compete successfully in this market."
IntraLinks Investor Portals will leverage the capabilities of the existing IntraLinks platform, an enterprise-grade solution that enables the sharing of content and secure collaboration between fund managers and the investor community. Over 500 hedge funds and private equity firms across the world already share critical information with more than 25,000 global endowment, foundation, pension, high-net-worth, and advisor organisations via the IntraLinks platform.
IntraLinks Investor Portals include all of the beneﬁts of IntraLinks, including FileSplit, enhanced security, user access reports, and iPhone/iPad support, while adding several important new features including:
• Enhanced branding – reinforce and extend a firm's image in the institutional investor community
• Content management tools – highlight key information about the firm, people, and process
• Dashboards – facilitate the exchange of critical data with investors using a rich set of charts, tables, and graphs
