The way that fund managers meet investors is broken and the way to fix it is through a new combination of science, data and Silicon Valley tech, according to Sam Hocking, a capital introductions veteran and former global head of prime brokerage sales at BNP Paribas. 

In the first of a two part mini-series, the founder of altX iMATCHATIVE explains why he thinks the fund manager selection process is ripe for reinvention and introduces his plans to change the way that investors find asset managers. The second instalment published later this week asks how Hocking's platform is using the same programmers as NASA to create matching algorithms, which he says will be more effective and efficient than the cap intro process which he himself used to run.
