For managers of small to mid-cap investment funds and the companies that own them, the challenges are mounting every day. There has never been more competition in the financial space, with brand new startups emerging and old school funds struggling just to keep up.
In this highly competitive environment, ensuring a steady flow of new opportunities has never been more important – or more challenging. Finding a smart solution to this seemingly intractable problem could mean the difference between success and failure, and no investment manager can afford to get it wrong.
Finding the best ways to source deals is perhaps the biggest obstacle faced by the managers of small to mid-cap investment funds, and there are two basic approaches to this issue. The first, and until recently most popular, solution to this problem was to establish a solid network of sell-side advisors, typically M&A boutiques to provide that steady flow of deals.
That strategy certainly has its benefits, but there are some significant drawbacks as well. Perhaps the most significant problem with the M&A boutique network is its dismally low hit ratio – a hit ratio of just 0.5% to 1% is considered good in this world.
In raw numbers that means that the manager of a typical small to mid-cap investment fund can expect to close just one deal for every 100 to 200 potential opportunities. That is a lot of time, energy and marketing money wasted, and it is why some enterprising fintech experts have come up with a better way forward.
That better solution is to partner with a deal sourcing firm like AQCON.
