Investcorp Launches New Fintech Platform
Investcorp has launched Investcorp iPartners, a new fintech investment platform that enables investors to browse, assess and invest in Investcorp’s private equity, real estate and other alternative investment offerings online. The platform was developed in collaboration with iCapital Network.
Hazem Ben-Gacem, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Investcorp, said: “Investcorp iPartners marks a continuation of the firm’s global expansion strategy. While we continue to expand our institutional investor base, Investcorp iPartners will solidify the firm’s leading ultra-high-net-worth investor franchise and expand our reach into the sizable, growing and underpenetrated private wealth market globally in partnership with distributor banks. iPartners further enhances our high-touch client servicing approach which continues to be a cornerstone of our business model and corporate culture.”
Commenting on the partnership with Investcorp, Lawrence Calcano, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of iCapital Network said: “We are thrilled to be selected to provide the technology to enable Investcorp to provide an efficient and secure platform through which to offer their ultra-high-net-worth investors a broad array of alternative investments including private market direct co-investment opportunities. We look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with Investcorp driven by a shared commitment to delivering smart technology that meets the unique alternative investing demands of a growing global marketplace.”
Investcorp iPartners is led by Abdul Rahim Saad, Head of Global Partnerships at Investcorp, who commented: “Global alternative investment distribution powered by FinTech is underpinned by favorable regulatory, commercial and technological trends: regulators democratizing access to wealth creation opportunities; private investors and distributor banks allocating more capital to alternative investments; and technological advancement enabling asset managers to penetrate this attractive market segment in a more efficient, scalable and user-friendly manner than ever before.”
