Have you heard the saying “it’s not what you know, but who you know?”. It’s a turn of phrase that I think is particularly relevant to startup investment fund managers.
Now don’t get me wrong – knowledge is absolutely critical to managing a fund.
However, without a network of institutional contacts, this knowledge simply can’t be put to good use. For instance, what if you can’t find a bank to facilitate cryptos? Or you can’t open an appropriate broker account?
It’s a real challenge that many investment fund managers face.
It’s also a challenge that any competent fund administration firm should be able to help with (but many do not). Here at IFINA, we have a network of institutional contacts that we’ve developed across decades. Specifically, we can help our fund managers connect with:
- Law Firms
- Brokerage Firms
- Crypto Exchanges
- Crypto AML Firms
- Umbrella Hosting Providers
- Investor Conference Contacts
Needless to say, our network of contacts enjoy an excellent reputation within our industry. Before we recommend any firm or institution to our fund managers, we conduct thorough due diligence to ensure the services they provide meet the highest standards.
If you’re currently looking for a fund administrator, make sure you think about any potential institutional contact network that you can use before making a decision.
Do you want to start your own investment fund? We should have a Skype call. Just email me back and we can book a time that’s convenient to you.
