Connecting investors and managers worldwide

About

ManagerMatch is Institutional Investor’s bespoke manager search service. Designed by, and for investors to identify skilled managers from a global pool of talent.

The advantages of II's search capabilities over our other origination processes are threefold: 1) We control the customization of the mandate; 2) Anonymity; 3) Interactive Q&A about the mandate. Their tool acts as an effective filter that has led to a more targeted and effective origination process for us.

We have been using II's search capabilities for two years and it has resulted in a number of new assignments for our firm. From a cost/benefit standpoint, this is one of highest return activities we use in the sales process.
