NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- iCapital Network today announced that the firm has been named "Best Fund Product for HNW Clients" at the 2017 Private Asset Management (PAM) Awards. iCapital is a financial technology platform focused on democratizing access to alternative investments for high-net-worth investors and their advisors.
The Private Asset Management Awards-presented by Private Asset Management magazine-recognize excellence in the wealth management industry. For the category of Best Fund Product for HNW clients, PAM evaluates commercial success and business growth, demonstration of increase of wealth manager clients, demonstration of product innovation, and positive client feedback via submitted testimonials.
This year, PAM's panel of independent judges received and considered a record number of entries before announcing the final winners, including iCapital, at an award ceremony held Monday, February 13. iCapital Network's co-founder Dan Vene and CEO Lawrence Calcano accepted the "Best Fund Product for HNW Clients" award in-person at the ceremony.
"We are honored to be recognized for our achievements in empowering HNW clients to access alternative investments," said Lawrence Calcano, Chief Executive Officer of iCapital Network. "iCapital's seamless offering has been the cornerstone of our extraordinary growth, and this award underscores the value of our platform to the HNW community."
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.
