Our currency is ratings. The more you participate, the more insight you get.
Your opinions are valuable. Use them as currency on our platform to reveal the insight you need into money managers, intermediaries and private placements via fully verified peer-to-peer ratings.
Money managers and companies can also use this information to help improve their professionalism and reputation.
Rating is entirely anonymous and available to anyone who can prove interaction.

To see how Reveal Insight works
Reveal Insight offers
“Qualitative” secure, verified, anonymous rating service for money managers, private placements, start-ups, intermediaries, financial advisors, wealth managers and RIAs.
Specially designed and user-tested for this sector to identify the most trustworthy and reliable money managers.
The financial stakes of all parties are protected.
Redress the balance which favours large funds
Small funds often produce superior returns.
However, they fail to raise assets due to the fear factor of investing into unknown money managers. Our algorithms and the ratings placed by real users show the clear opinion on funds worldwide, big and small.
Reveal Insight benefits
More transparency and trust in our industry is urgently needed. The industry is far from a meritocracy. The largest few managers manage the majority of investor capital due to their brand recognition and perceived safety despite performing less well than their smaller peers.
- Investors can find smaller better performing managers with lower fees without fearing the mismanagement of their assets
- Investing becomes safer as bad actors are identified by the market and shared publicly
- Money managers can identify issues within their business to improve their service
- Small money managers can raise assets which normally investors would not have had the confidence to invest with them
- Intermediaries can find and raise assets for small managers more easily and with more confidence that their fee shares will be paid promptly and correctly
Reveal Insight is not a social network but a vendor reputation rating system
Our rating algorithm is the core of Reveal Insight
A series of deceptively simple questions and comments allows us to create a meritocracy within the money management industry that will allow investors to hold money managers accountable and allow the best small managers to thrive and grow faster than was previously possible.
Honest and hard-working boutique managers will be able to compound their good business will.

1000+ Products & Growing Daily
Money managers, intermediaries, private placements, incubators, funds and bonds are added and then peer-rated. Verification of ratings is then carried out by the Reveal Insight team. Once the appropriate number of verified peer-ratings are achieved the product is published.
Reveal Insight has been created by a team with decades of experience. Our experts’ little black book forms the core of the content. The content will grow indefinitely. You are invited to participate so please feel free to add anything not already listed. This will be published once it has been vetted and has received the appropriate peer-reviews.

Can a manager pay a premium to be promoted to the top of the list on the website or improve his score?
No. A manager cannot pay a premium that will affect his score or positioning on the website.
Can anybody rate the managers?
No. Only verified investors who have had experience investing into the manager that they are rating.
How are reviews validated?
Only users registered on the platform can review a fund or a project. Most users will be registering with corporate emails. The system automatically validates on a random basis that users have indeed had interaction with that fund by having to upload proof of subscription or redemption.
Very low or very high scoring reviews will trigger additional controls. For private placements, every review needs to be validated.
How can I register a private placement on the platform?
Simply contact us. It is not as easy to add a private placement as a fund, as there is a comprehensive due diligence process and 10 to 50 reviews are required, all of which need to be validated.
How can I register a fund on the platform?
Any registered users can add and rate a fund. Fund managers wishing to add their fund should simply contact us. Once the validation process has been completed, the fund provider is given access to a fund porthole that allows them to keep key information on the fund updated.
Once fully operational, new funds go live on the system once they receive three validated reviews.
Can I publish my Reveal Insight score on my website, performance factsheet and presentation?
Yes. We highly recommend that you do so.
Do I have to pay to access the ratings?
Access to our database of money managers and their qualitative ratings is free for all investors and intermediaries. However, when fully operational, the top 20 and bottom 20 managers will only be accessible if you are a paying subscriber. You can avoid the subscription fee if you rate five investment offerings per month.
What happens if investors rate my fund poorly and my reputation is crucified publicly?
You know that you have to do a better job before you go out of business! You can also invite your happy clients to the platform to rate you positively to improve your score. These must be genuine investors as we carry out stringent controls on all registrations.
Does Reveal Insight really make investing safer?
Yes. Historically, small money managers without a recognisable brand have been able to act unprofessionally as they have not had a worthy brand to tarnish. Reveal Insight changes that as they will have to all think twice before gating your investment or adding a holiday to Brazil as a fund expense!
How does the listing process work?
- Requests to add a new fund are made by users/investors.
- Funds can also volunteer to join the platform.
- Funds are then vetted and listed by the Reveal Insight team.
- Once a fund receives three investor ratings, the fund information is then made public to users.
- Funds are then requested to add detailed quantitative information about their infrastructure, location and team.
What happens if a user writes a review and cannot validate it?
The system automatically red flags a user if they are unable to validate interaction on said review. In this case, all reviews made by that user are removed until each of the remaining reviews have been validated.
Can I suggest and add a new manager that is not already on the platform?
Yes. We want our platform to be as comprehensive as possible, so we encourage investors to suggest new managers to be added
As an investor, can I rate managers anonymously?
Yes, we want the ratings to be as accurate as possible and therefore we will protect the identity of investors so that they can feel free to also provide negative and critical ratings.
Is investment performance taken into consideration?
No. This is a rating system based entirely on qualitative attributes: honesty, integrity, infrastructure, professionalism, transparency, access, responsibility etc.
Don’t investment consultants provide the same information?
Investment consultants provide similar information but theirs is subjective and not statistically significant. Furthermore, they charge a lot of money for it!
Will these ratings really help me to raise money?
Yes. The main difficulty that investors have in investing into small managers is knowing which ones to trust with their money. This ratings business model has achieved great success for smaller businesses across other industries (examples: Amazon, AirBnB, Tripadvisor). It has redistributed clients to the less established vendors. A ratings intermediary adds a layer of protection and allows for customer recourse.
How can I request a negative review be removed?
Reveal Insight treats every negative review very seriously due to the money manager’s reputational risk.
Therefore, every review under a certain percentage needs to be validated before it is published. Should a complaint be filed by a money manager regarding a negative review, subscribing money managers will be forwarded information provided to the system supporting this negative review.
