Decades ago, investment was done mainly through referrals or through knowledgeable sources like banks and private investment which was heavily based on the financial statement analysis of a company. The investors in the company were far and few. With no internet and adequate means of communication, investment or expansion of a company was a herculean task, then. Investors Database came into existence riding on the internet and information availability.
The world has now progressed to a stage where there are companies that are specifically dedicated to researching and providing access to investors’ databases. Although there are a plethora of options for startups or firms to raise money, there are very limited ones for Private Equity, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds, or Emerging Managers. Even if there are options, the prices for the same are prohibitive specifically for Emerging Managers who are on a shoestring budget.
Magistral’s Investors database
Our investors’ database is a collection of useful information about investors like LPs and GPs such as Private equity firms, Venture capitalists, Investment banking, Sovereign Wealth Funds, Family Offices, HNIs, and investment management firms. Each lead contains information such as their contact name, contact email, designation, company address, investment interests and specializations, investment geographies, and philosophy, etc. which is obtained mainly through sources such as secondary research, referrals, and personal contacts.
The purpose of the investor database is to facilitate the interactions between investors and business owners or Investment Managers and Limited Partners to invest in their firm or the fund. This can be done for multiple purposes such as seed capital funding, early-stage funding, expansion of business as well as late-stage funding in the case of companies. For funds, the obvious benefit is to close the funding rounds faster
Magistral consulting has a database that consists of General Partners, Limited Partners, Angel investors, and High Net Worth individuals (HNI’s) who have the resources and money available to invest in a business or a fund.
Problems with Other Solutions in the Market
There are various questions that one must answer before one agrees to pay for an investor database. Some of them are –
Costs: the costs associated with a database are large with some being as expensive as $30,000 to $80,000 for complete access. Costs are prohibitive for Emerging Managers.
Ease of Use: Very few players in the market allow for an easy-to-use interface for accessing the database
Excessive Information: Most of the information provided is not really relevant for a company. They need access to a limited number of resources.
Customized leads: Customized leads of GP’s, LPs, angel investors, etc. tailored as per your requirements are not easily available in the market. They have to pay for accessing the entire database.
