History

4Finance Ltd. was founded on June 1, 2005 with the aim of providing consulting services, education and wealth management.

The idea of providing the matching platform came due to the fact that we were frequently contacted by investors who were looking for specific investment types and asset managers wanting to present their investment offers.

We realized that in some circumstances the (lack of) information flow created huge inefficiencies from both sides and communication needed to be enhanced.

4Finance was always proud to offer real value added professional and fully independent services for its clients. We regard independence and professionality as crucial, however, in some cases we didn’t have the full expertise on specific investments in order to conduct the required due diligence, hence the idea of providing a matching platform came up.

In the time of digitalization and Fintech we wanted to digitalize and standardize what is repeatable e.g. investments, for making pre-selection possible, giving options to mutually share due-diligence knowledge, indicate investment interests etc.

With this idea in mind the concept of the platform SmartMoneyMatch begun that became live in January 2015.

SmartMoneyMatch was very well perceived in the market, and as the response was very positive; the feedback was incorporated for a new roll-out in January 2017 with some additional functionalities like jobs, events, member updates, due-diligence sharing etc.

As SmartMoneyMatch connects the global investment community we want to honor outstanding achievements in the investment industry through the SmartMoneyMatch awards program.
