NEW YORK, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- iCapital Network today announced that the firm has been named "Best Outsourced Alternative Investment Platform" by Wealth & Finance International as part of the publication's 2017 Alternative Investment Awards. iCapital is a financial technology platform focused on democratizing access to alternative investments for high-net-worth investors and their advisors.
Wealth & Finance presents the Alternative Investment Awards annually to honor the companies and products that shape the alternative investment industry. Criteria for selection includes dedication to client service, innovation, and business success. Honorees are chosen after a rigorous research process in which an in-house research team analyzes each nominee's achievements over the past twelve months.
"We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovation within the alternative investments industry," said Lawrence Calcano, Chief Executive Officer of iCapital Network. "This award not only spotlights the strength of iCapital's end-to-end platform solution, it also affirms the importance of technology to alternatives and the larger financial ecosystem."
Individual investors remain significantly under-allocated to alternative investments relative to institutional investors, but are increasingly exploring the critical role alternatives can play in state-of-the-art portfolio construction. iCapital's online platform facilitates access to private investment opportunities through an independent origination and due diligence process that prioritizes quality offerings from an array of managers, and provides an end-to-end technology solution automating the unique subscription, administration, and reporting processes of alternative investments.
iCapital introduced its online platform two years ago and currently services more than $2 billion in assets for approximately 3,000 investors across more than 40 private offerings. Its member network is comprised of approximately 1,500 qualified investors and advisory professionals who collectively oversee more than $1.7 trillion in investable client assets.
