Smart Money Investment

Due to your activity in the investment area, the investment matching platform might be of interest to you. The platform has two main functionalities:

1. Investments can be classified analogous to eBay and according to these criteria you can offer or request investments. You can state what your supply or demand is and give other users the opportunity to search for supplied or demanded investments within the given criteria. Additionally, a request for proposal (RFP) within the given criteria can be made, and potential suppliers can state which kind of RFP they are willing to receive in their inbox.

The classification for the investments fall in with the following criteria (with the respective sub criteria):

- Asset-Class with the respective sub criteria
- Investment vehicle (incl. consulting, congresses and research)
- Liquidity (type of market)
- Investment Focus
- Investment form (active/passive especially for funds)
- The legal structure with questions regarding distribution (e.g. in which countries for qualified/non-qualified investors, minimal investments etc.), currency, fees, track record etc.

2. Users can mutually connect with each other on the platform. This functionality is similar to LinkedIn focusing on relevant criteria for the investment industry (at registration you can choose who will be able to see your information).

The criteria are:

- Are you already a contact (like LinkedIn)
- What type of user he or she is: General/demander (investor) or supplier (e.g. asset manager)
- If an investor: Is he/she a qualified/accredited investor
- The assets under management (AuM) of the investors. As an investor you can choose whether or not you want to reveal this
information at registration. - What type of investor is he or she?
- Home address (country)
- Possible communication language(s)
- Business trips e.g. in your profile you can indicate when you are in which countries/cities at any time, so other users get the opportunity to search according these criteria to facilitate meetings/business trip planning.
