Service for hedge fund managers
Our investors and fund managers work with MGI, since our CEO Marcel Melis is knowledgeable about the hedge fund industry and has a history of success.
In 2006 Marcel founded Energy Capital Management (AuM $150 ml) to manage the MMT Energy Fund until 2010.
Marcels’ family office has a significant hedge fund and real estate exposure. In 2010 Marcel founded MGI to serve as a global distributor for a selected group of best-in-class hedge funds. All MGI distribution fees are invested in funds.
We raised about $1 billion for about 20 funds since our start in 2010.
In 2023 Marcel co-founded Fund of Funds Swaen Melis Fund (SMF) with Cliff Go at Swaen Capital.
Our global team has the resources to introduce our managers to over 3000 investors.
We will only connect our managers to the right investors that match the investment profile.
Most of our investors are located across Europe, North America, Asia and Middle East.
We only recommend high quality hedge funds that match the search profile of our investors.
We are selective with the hedge funds that we are adding to our platform and only work with about 20 managers.
Both our partners consultants and MGI maintain a strong reputation in the third party marketing firm industry.
We are known as being reliable and responsive to customer inquiries, and have a strong track record of delivering high-quality products.
We work with pension funds, insurance companies, banks, wealth managers, fund of funds, family offices, foundations, consultants and HNWI.
The MGI team manages the communication process between investors and hedge fund managers and assists in the due diligence process.
The MGI team facilitates the capital raising process by arranging road shows and conference calls.

In the U.S.A., securities are offered through our business partner Young America Capital, LLC, a broker-dealer registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”).
