Global Fund Search is an independent and privately owned company located in Copenhagen, Denmark. We facilitate an efficient flow of information between institutional investors and the best investment managers.
Independence and objectivity are core pillars to Global Fund Search, hence, we do neither enter retrocession fee agreements, nor do we provide investment recommendations or have any other stakes in the industry. We therefore position ourselves as an independent, objective and trustworthy intermediary within the field of investment manager selection.
The company was founded in 2012 by Kasper S. Andersen and Kristoffer Andersen (Brothers) based on inputs from both buy side as well as sell side where it became apparent that a more efficient way of matching institutional investors and investment managers was long-sought.
Global Fund Search provides access to the entire range of managers from the smallest boutique managers, who may not necessarily be listed in the typical databases, to the largest industry leaders.
In every search you make, you can expect true global exposure - that is our promise to you.
Global Fund Search helps institutional investors finding the best investment managers for their mandates. We facilitate an efficient flow of information between institutional investors and investment managers to the benefit of both parties.
This is achieved by means of a highly sophisticated and user friendly web-platform in combination with a large investment manager network that gives the institutional investor an industry leading exposure.
We prefer to work with investors who are open towards the investment universe and who recognize that finding a good manager is just as much about having a qualitative understanding of the product/manager than having a quantitative view.
For this reason we also facilitate a search process where we communicate directly with the investment managers about your search and requirements in order to identify the most competitive long list candidates for your mandate.
The platform is customized for investment professionals responsible for fund/manager selection.
We support the core pillars in the search process, providing you with the tools to identify skillful asset managers fitting with your criteria. Global Fund Search does not analyze or interpret information, we provide the infrastructure and handle data.
Assessing the quality of an investment strategy requires a rigorous analysis of the track record, but it must be combined with a qualitative analysis.
Is it the current team which is responsible for the track or did the lead manager recently depart the team? Is a top down view vital to the investment process? Are there strong biases towards certain regions or sectors? Is the benchmark followed closely or is the manager completely agnostic to benchmark composition? When lower quality rallies, will the strategy lack the market?
As an intermediary it is crusial that we service both investors and managers equally well.
We therefore work intensively with our relationship to the investment manager community making sure that we are both well known and well regarded. This includes giving search feedback to the participating managers and helpng them in an objective manner to determine if a mandate is worth going for or not. We have a long term commitment to this industry, hence our service level, objectivity when giving advise and trust in our company are of the highest importance.
Global Fund Search is servicing the institutional segment of the investment management industry.
Clients posting mandates on our platform are e.g. pension funds, foundations, multi managers, banks, insurance companies and investment consultants.
