Worldclass CRM Through a Browser

With BHA SalesDesk, managers can:

Global Investor Database Powered by BHA Research Team

The BHA SalesDesk solution enables managers to streamline the process of marketing their funds to the most appropriate investors by reaching only those that are most suitable for their style and focus. BHA's professional research team is dedicated to rigorously updating and perfecting the database and working directly with hedge fund managers and marketers to deliver a constant flow of qualified sales leads from BHA's proprietary database of 20,000 proven hedge fund investors around the world. The BHA research analyst team forges relationships with potential investors, collecting detailed information on their alternative investment goals, needs, likes, dislikes and restrictions. The team then streamlines and packages this information to help managers and marketers easily identify individuals, family offices, institutions, funds-of-funds or other qualified investor who may be interested in the manager's investment style and approach.

"As a hedge fund industry veteran, I saw first hand the inefficiencies inherent in the traditional marketing process as managers and marketers were forced to use a hodgepodge of paper, PC-based applications, PDAs and sticky notes to track qualified investors in what had become an antiquated and expensive effort to raise assets. I founded Brighton House Associates to better connect managers and marketers with the complete universe of hedge fund investors around the world," said Daniel C. McDermott, CEO, Brighton House Associates. "SalesDesk was designed from the ground up to align fund mangers and marketers with fully qualified investors, while raising the level of efficiency and driving down costs as well."

"Brighton House's SalesDesk has made my sales efforts more productive and given me a new level of flexibility and efficiency," Said Brendon D. Mahoney, Director of Business Development, West Mountain Partners, L.P. "Before using BHA SalesDesk, I was using an Excel spreadsheet and doing my marketing research largely by hand, but now my marketing programs are more efficient, I can take them anywhere I go because SalesDesk is Web-based, and I can reach more prospects, faster, worldwide. BHA SalesDesk has made my job a lot easier."
