Why Should I Use a Managed Account Platform?

  • Multiple Investments on One Platform
  • Transparency
  • Liquidity
  • Managed Custody
  • Control & Governance

Alternative investments are investment products other than traditional asset types. Because of their markedly different risk and return characteristics, alternative investments serve to stabilize and add diversification to traditional portfolios, while also potentially enhancing long-term returns. There is a broad range of alternative investments, including:

Managed Futures | Commodities | Hedge Funds | Foreign Equities | Derivatives Contracts | Real Estate

What is a MAP?

A Managed Account Platform “MAP” is an operational infrastructure designed to provide investors with a managed account like experience with control and transparency in their investing strategy.

Manager Solutions


Before being included on our Platform, every manager is thoroughly vetted and reviewed. We collect information from the manager, analyze and review their strategies, their professional backgrounds, as well as their operational infrastructure. We perform background checks on the firm and principals.

We only include managers who meet our standards.

Our due diligence doesn’t stop once a manager is on the Platform. We continue to monitor all of our managers to ensure that they stay within the established parameters of their investment strategy.

Benefits of the Platform:

  • Distribution
    Dedicated, focused internal and external sales teams that actively promote the managers on the Platform
  • Customer service
    Personalized, superior and responsive customer service; we value our partnership with you
  • Fee structure
    Cost effective and straight forward pricing terms
  • Independent
    Eliminates the conflict of interest of “one-stop shop platforms”


Managers Gain Greater Access to RIA Community:

Galaxy Plus works hard to increase distribution, our goal is to use our resources to introduce you and your strategies to prospective investors. In addition, Galaxy Plus will work with managers to get their strategies listed on custodian platforms in order to engage with RIA clients. Being listed on these platforms gives the independent advisor clients access to a third-party platform that offers access to private funds. Such access is contingent upon being selected for inclusion on the Galaxy Plus platform, giving our managers exposure to a new set of prospective investors they would not have had access to on their own

(Disclaimer: Advisors must pass custodial due diligence as well as the required due diligence by Galaxy Plus)
