METIS Financial Network Launches New Marketing and Management Platform for Funds

METIS Financial Network announces a new Alternative Investment Marketplace, METIS Fund Portal (www.metisfundportal.com). METIS Fund Portal gives alternative funds (private, venture and hedge) the ability to complement their existing capital-raising efforts by marketing their offerings to a global network of accredited investors and advisors, and allows all parties involved to seamlessly manage data, documents and communications throughout the investment lifecycle.

Monterey Financial Services is the first company to use METIS Fund Portal to globally market their new $50 million fund and manage the participating investors. “We’re thrilled to launch METIS Fund Portal with Monterey on board,” said Joy Hou, CEO of METIS. “The Monterey team has been instrumental in contributing their knowledge and experience as we continue to refine the Fund Portal to address practical challenges faced by fund managers."

“Monterey has been a growing leader in consumer financing, loan servicing and delinquent debt recovery since 1989. To continue that growth, we have decided to expand our investor base,” said Chris Hughes, president and CEO of Monterey Financial Services. “We selected METIS Fund Portal because it enables us to market globally and manage locally, while providing full transparency to our investors.”

METIS’ technology enables Monterey to communicate directly with potential investors, and manage the entire lifecycle of the investment efficiently and cost-effectively. METIS also collaborates with Monterey on marketing efforts, to bring an even greater impact to the fund.

“Historically, the investment process has been highly fragmented,” said Hou. “We’ve developed a solution that brings together fund managers, advisors, and accredited investors (individuals, family offices and institutions) to form an investment network. Investors gain access to a new universe of investment opportunities; managers are exposed to entirely new pool of potential capital; and advisors have a new range of investment vehicles to offer to clients. Our solution is both balanced and comprehensive: it serves the unique needs of all parties, and extends beyond marketing through to management."

Advisors and investors focused on alternative investments may use METIS Fund Portal to search for investment opportunities, conduct due diligence, express interest, request further details, submit accreditation documents and electronically execute all documents. Fund managers may verify investor accreditation, communicate directly with any prospect and accept or reject investment requests. Once closing documents have been executed, the relationship between all parties in the investment network is centrally managed through the platform. Advisors and investors may view portfolio concentration and individual fund performance, and continue to communicate with fund managers directly. Fund managers may easily share fund documents and financials, and retain a centralized location where all investor information and investment activity is easily accessed.

METIS Fund Portal has a particular focus on supporting new and emerging fund managers, who are often working with minimal resources as they manage investments and investor relationships. METIS not only provides them with greater reach, but also provides the infrastructure to support growth. The Fund Portal simplifies the process of qualifying accredited investors, makes it easy to communicate with current investors, and provides transparency throughout the process to help managers navigate the complex regulatory environment. To support continued growth as managers and advisors scale operations, METIS also offers enterprise-level solutions that enable transparent, secure and centralized management of all aspects of their operations.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
