For Regulated Advisors, platforms are completely white-label (branding, colours and URL). For Unregulated Advisors, the platform will be white-label but will be hosted on a HUBX URL.
What is the matching score?
At HUBX, we use machine learning techniques to help our clients identify the most relevant investors for their deals. By combining data from the platform with third-party sources, we can find the most suitable matches in real time. HUBX clients can leverage the algorithm within their network, or find investor matches beyond their own network.
Which data sources are used by the HUBX algorithm?
Investment preferences uploaded by Advisors or investors inform the matching algorithm, as well as the deal profile and tags. HUBX also taps into public data and third-party sources which consider unique factors such as founder profiles, network proximity and investing history.
Can the deal be settled on the platform?
Currently, HUBX does not offer settlement services on the platform. Once the order book is filled, settlement will take place offline.
Do you have a referral program?
Yes, we give credit to existing clients each time they introduce a new Advisor to HUBX. Ask your relationship manager to find out more.
