Q. What is a Smartlist?
The Smartlist is the result of a sell-side query. All representatives of the buy-side that match the query are listed here. Depending on the quality of the fit, you will receive so-called matching points, which determine your rank in the Smartlist.
Q. What are Matching Points (MPs) and how does the matching / scoring work?
Matching Points (MPs) describe the quality of the fit of the registered buyer to the request. The amount of MPs is calculated on the basis of a complex algorithm that compares all investment criteria, keywords and portfolio companies with the request.
Q. What are matches?
A match means that you are on a created smart list - your search profile matches a seller's query. In the Matches area of your user area you will find an overview on which Smartlists you were represented. The view contains information about sectors, sub-sectors, sales, achieved matchingpoints and your rank in the Smartlist. In addition, we will inform you - if desired - regularly by e-mail about new matches.
Q. What happens when I edit or update my search profile?
Your updated search profile is automatically compared with already saved smart lists. If your updated search profile matches a saved Smartlist, you will be added to it. Both sides receive - if desired - a notification about the new match.
Q. Why should I add portfolio companies and keywords to my profile?
The complex fit algorithm evaluates all the information you enter in your search profile and distributes so-called MPs according to the fit. The more information you enter, the better the algorithm can evaluate the fit.
Q. What information does Sell-Side receive about my company?
The Smartlist displays relevant information about your company and search profile as well as suitable portfolio companies and the responsible contact person. The selection of the information that is displayed depends on the individual query of the sell side. In this way we can ensure that you are optimally presented to the sell-side.
Q. Do I have to enter my complete profile including all portfolio companies immediately?
No, first it is sufficient to enter some general search criteria. Nevertheless, we recommend that you fill out the search profile as completely as possible in order to achieve the best possible fit.
