HedgeCo was founded with the goal of to encourage transparency and enable easy communication between hedge funds and accredited investors.
To further the goal of industry transparency, HedgeCo Networks created HedgeCo.Net, a free online hedge fund database. As hedge funds saw the value of a free database, the number of hedge funds that report to HedgeCo.Net grew, and HedgeCo.Net became the largest independant hedge fund database.
Over the years, HedgeCo has invested heavily in the technology which powers the HedgeCo.Net database. Our basic reporting tools were quickly replaced with an analytic engine that calculates over 150 return and quantitative statistics. Advanced search functionality was built to ensure that the high quality data that we gathered on the funds was easily accessible to investors who were looking for a fund that matched their investment profile.
To engage with interested parties who are not (yet) accredited investors, HedgeCo developed a hedge fund news section of the site, which is also free and available to the public. Over the years, the HedgeCo news team has published over 12,000 original stories. We started out with a weekly newsletter, but based on public demand, we quickly expanded to a daily newsletter, which has become a very popular publication.
