Bahrain-based global asset manager company Investcorp has launched a new platform named Investcorp iPartners, to provide emerging ‘fintech’ opportunities for its investors.

This new platform will enable investors to browse, assess and invest in Investcorp’s private equity, real estate, and other alternative investment offerings online. Currently, the service will be available for investors in the US and the Gulf region. Furthermore, the company is working to expand its services internationally.

Investcorp iPartners was developed in partnership with iCapital Network, a US-based leading financial technology firm that connects high net worth investors to asset and wealth management companies.

“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.”

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.”

“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,” commented Abdul Rahim Saad, Head of Global Partnerships at Investcorp.
