iSelect Fund

iSelect allows accredited investors to assemble a diversified portfolio of the Midwest’s most promising emerging growth companies through their own financial advisors.

iSelect is focused on private companies that have received their initial funding from other sources and are looking to introduce their products to the market. These companies are moving beyond the seed or start-up phase, but require more capital for further development. While the risks in this investment class are higher, the prospective returns are greater.
