NEW YORK, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BoardEx, a business unit of TheStreet Inc. (NASDAQ: TST), announced two new innovative features – Advisor to Advisor Connections and a Private Equity Module – designed to further enhance the service and solidify the brand's leadership within the relationship mapping sector.
Building on its existing Advisors and Dealmakers data, BoardEx now provides Advisor to Advisor Connections, allowing users to find connections between individuals who have worked as advisors on the same side of a M&A deal.
BoardEx also recently introduced a Private Equity Module to surface key information about the senior management of PE firms and their portfolio companies. This feature enables users to map the connections that exist in the Private Equity sector and provide client firms with greater connectivity to the PE market. The Private Equity Module allows transparency into the growing PE market, in addition to all public companies that BoardEx specializes in.
"TheStreet has upgraded BoardEx to include connections within both the dealmaking and investment communities," said Jeff Davis, President of Institutional Services. "This type of data will be particularly useful to law firms and investment banks as they strive for more transparency around deal relationships."
BoardEx is the most comprehensive, continuously-growing influencer database, globally. Within the platform, users can surface more than 800 million first degree connections between themselves, their colleagues and the industry's most extensive coverage of senior leaders – c-suite, board members, high level management and decision makers.
