SEEDERS & PLATFORM: OPIM, Seeding Arrangements

 

OPIM launches OP FundSeeder, Asia's first free trader analytics and talent search platform

OP Investment Management Ltd., (Hong Kong) (OPIM), a member of the Oriental Patron Financial Group, today announced the launch of the OP FundSeeder (OPFS) website www.opfs.com.hk. A localized version of FundSeeder in the US, OPFS provides free institutional-grade statistical analysis to traders to help understand, track and improve their portfolio management skills. The system also uses a proprietary algorithm to score and rank trader portfolios. Working with a network of investment partners, OPIM can help traders get recognized by institutional investors looking for new talent.

"Our mission has always been to discover the next generation of great Asian managers and connect them to allocators," said Alvin Fan, Chief Executive O?cer of OPIM. "With OP FundSeeder, we can now uncover hidden talent regardless of pedigree, background, or capital."

The Hong Kong-based platform currently links to any trading accounts with Interactive Brokers including introducing brokers who clear through IB. In 2018, OPFS will be rolling out with more international brokers in Hong Kong

"We've learnt that trading talent can come from any background. In fact, some of the greatest fund managers in history came from non-financial backgrounds. The goal of the system is to help traders improve by first helping them understand their decisions. The OPFS scoring rewards discipline, process, consistency, and precision - all necessary to achieve strong risk-adjusted returns.

OPFS is free and available for anyone interested in improving their trading." Alvin added. OPFS website will be updated on a regular basis and visitors are encouraged to explore the site and sign up at opfs.com.hk. Of course, as with any launch, there will always be room for improvement, so any feedback is welcome!
