AI Advisors launches manages account platform and web portal

Monday, January 09, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: AI Advisors has announced today that it has launched its managed account platform (the "Platform") and web portal, designed to bridge the alternative investment and Investment Advisor markets.  AI Advisors sponsors a separately managed account program on the Platform, providing clients with access to alternative investments in liquid and transparent managed accounts, with reasonable investment minimums, and with client-maintained custody.  AI Advisors serves as investment adviser to the client accounts.

AI Advisors initially has engaged four leading alternative investment managers to serve as Subadvisors with respect to their strategies on the Platform.  Investment Advisors can log on to the web portal at www.ai-advisors.com, register for access, and review information on each Subadvisor.  The web portal includes the following information in a standardized format:

  • Information on the Subadvisor's strategy
  • Performance data
  • Video and other interactive materials

In addition, the web portal allows Investment Advisors to track the performance and real-time commentary of each Subadvisor.  AI Advisors is pleased to announce the launch of the Platform with the following four alternative strategies:
