From an investor’s perspective, how is DealFlow Source different from online deal flow exchanges or networks?
DealFlow Source is different from online deal flow exchanges and networks in the following ways for investors:
Investor Driven Process.

DealFlow Source applies an investor driven deal origination process and takes into account investor clients’ quantitative and qualitative investment criteria which results in highly targeted deal flow with a high rate of investor deal pursuits. Most online deal flow exchanges and networks apply a seller driven process to promote deals to investors and rely on broad quantitative criteria matching that require investors to review numerous deal teasers in order to identify deals of interest.

Proprietary Deal Flow.

Investors are able to use DealFlow Source’s Buy Side Target Research and Buy Side Network Searches to generate proprietary deal flow as opposed to the nonproprietary deal flow they mostly receive through deal flow exchanges and networks.

Network Size.

With over 80,000 deal members, no other online deal flow exchanges or network matches the size of the DealFlow Source Network for investment and acquisition searches.

Flexible Fee Options.

DealFlow Source is the only leading deal flow provider that offers investors both subscription and success fee options.

How is DealFlow Source different from buy side firms?
