The Netherlands is home to Europe's oldest stock exchange, the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, first established back in 1602. According to the latest IMF report, its financial system has assets nearly eight times GDP with the largest three banks accounting for 72 per cent of the sector's assets. They are: ING Bank NV, Coöperatieve Rabobank UA, and ABN AMRO Bank NV.
The one enduring quality of the hedge fund industry is its seemingly endless optimism and willingness to continually evolve, to meet the demanding (and sometimes unrealistic) expectations of institutional investors. Nowhere is that entrepreneurial spirit more evident than in New York City, the global hub for hedge funds. The latest figures from Preqin show that 71 per cent of new fund launches in Q2 2017 originated out of New York.
Key to the success of any fund jurisdiction is a commitment to constant innovation and in that respect Malta, a tiny island nestled in the Mediterranean, has much to be excited about. Whether it is the streamlining of regulation, the introduction of innovative manager-led products in the form of the Notified AIF, a commitment to becoming Europe's leading securitisation market, or indeed Europe's leading hub for blockchain technology, Malta continues to push the boundaries.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
