Madrid, Zurich, New York – February 2, 2022 – Allfunds, the leading B2B Wealthtech platform for the funds industry, and iCapital , the leading global fintech platform driving access and efficiency in alternative investing for the asset and wealth management industries, today announced that their platform to provide private market investment opportunities to the Allfunds global distributor network is now live.
Allfunds’ clients can now request access to this new feature in the Allfunds ecosystem and will be able to access an increasing range of private market funds from leading managers across geographies and strategies – in private equity, private debt, and real assets – with lower minimum investment levels. In the coming months iCapital will continue to select and diligence new funds across a diverse set of strategies, for a comprehensive, robust alternatives offering available to the Allfunds network.
A customer centric focus and digital-first mindset shared by Allfunds and iCapital has resulted in a seamless and highly efficient integration. Through the platform, subscription and client servicing processes throughout the entire investment lifecycle are fully automated, eliminating operational difficulties and the traditional manual, paper-based practice advisors and their clients have historically faced with this asset class. Additionally, investors benefit from centralized document management with complete visibility and comprehensive, streamlined reporting on all investments.
