Our Solutions for Fund Managers
Our History and Experience
We launched The Global Fund Exchange Group in April 2005 after decades of building successful fund businesses for others. We have created investment platforms, both onshore and offshore; including emerging and established managers in single and multi-manager products. We have personally performed due diligence on thousands of investment companies and invested in hundreds of funds. As a result we have learned what works and what doesn’t. In the process we have forged solid relationships with experts at the very top of their field, enjoyed success investing in great talent, and most importantly have learned something at every step of the journey..

How we work.
1 The first step is to have an introductory coffee meeting or a virtual meeting. We will take a good look to ascertain whether we can be of service to you, apply some of our solutions and are a good fit for you. We believe in only win-win business and will always be forthright and professional. If we can't help you, we probably know who can. Schedule it now
2 Assuming that we are the right fit for each other and that we can help you, we will outline in writing what our procedure is, which modules we are going to be covering and agree on a 6month or 12 month consulting agreement. Everything is laid out clearly from the beginning and then flawlessly executed. We want you to win
3 Every week / month (as agreed) we will be connecting in person or by video chat to summarize progress and deliverables from the last meeting, follow up on any outstanding tasks, cover the content of the next module, agree on key tasks and schedule our next meeting. It's imperative that both sides deliver and perform to make this a winning partnership.

Anric Blatt is always enthusiastic and full of entrepreneurial energy, yet his strategic insights and new ideas often display a brutal simplicity, leaving one felling why one couldn’t conceptualize such thoughts long ago.
