iCapital Network’s fintech platform has transformed the way alternative investments such as private equity and hedge funds are bought and sold, through the development of tech-based solutions for advisors and their high-net-worth clients.   iCapital’s technology powers the flagship platform – which facilitates access to private investments through an independent origination and due diligence process that prioritizes quality offerings from an array of managers – and automates the unique subscription, administration, and reporting processes of alternative investments. Products are offered at lower investment minimums than generally available to retail investors and accompanied by a full suite of due diligence, educational, and administrative support.   iCapital’s technology is also available within a custom branded platform solution that seamlessly integrates with existing fund manager and distributor ecosystems to enhance the investing experience for advisors and clients. The platform integrates with critical infrastructure providers such as administrators, custodians, and transfer agents to streamline the process.

Trading Marketplace Offers Liquidity for Private Equity Investments
In April 2019, iCapital Network announced an exclusive partnership with Nasdaq Private Market (NPM) to create an integrated secondary marketplace for private funds. In April 2020, the marketplace went live. The platform offers liquidity solutions to advisors and their high-net-worth clients who have private equity investments in their portfolios. NPM’s qualified matching service gives investors who have holdings in iCapital-sponsored funds – on the iCapital flagship platform or on third party white label platforms powered by iCapital’s technology – the option to put private holdings up for auction. The auction process leverages NPM’s existing list of qualified institutional secondary buyers. NPM’s technology is integrated with iCapital’s technology to automate the secondary marketplace, easing the operational process, and adding transparency for advisors and their high-net-worth clients.
