InfraHedge

The largest MAP - infrastructure provider

InfraHedge came to the managed account platform (MAP) world quite late, in 2011, but has more than made up for lost time. Within its first year it had more assets than most MAPs and by mid-2015 had already attracted $19 billion, as shown in Fig.1 (see following page) over-taking the others to become the world’s largest MAP. This growth has not arisen from InfraHedge on-boarding and marketing fund managers as InfraHedge neither selects nor sells funds. The assets have come from large, sophisticated investors (including some other MAPs) that have chosen to partner with InfraHedge. The commitment to open architecture is impressive: one example is that InfraHedge sits inside State Street, which claims to be the largest administrator of alternative assets, but receives data feeds from more than 20 administrators selected by its clients.

Sponsored versus dedicated MAPs

MAPs can be categorized in various ways and InfraHedge divides them into two types. “We distinguish between dedicated and sponsored MAPs,” says senior managing director of State Street Alternative Investment Solutions, Effie Datson, who was selected as one of The Hedge Fund Journal’s Leading 50 Women in Hedge Funds 2015, in the survey supported by EY. The pure ‘sponsored’ model tends to be owned by asset managers or banks, contains some degree of asset management or manager selection, has a structure largely or entirely dictated by the sponsor, and is open to investment from all who meet eligible criteria. Examples could include two MAPs operated by Datson’s former firm, Deutsche Bank: Deutsche Liquid Alternatives and dbSelect, and two MAPs that have disclosed their relationship with InfraHedge: Milltrust International Group and Wilshire Funds Management.
