NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — iCapital1, the leading global financial technology platform driving access and efficiency in alternative investing for the asset and wealth management industries, announced today a 3-year brand ambassador partnership with LPGA major tournament champion and two-time Olympian, Lexi Thompson, currently placed 12th in the Rolex World Rankings.
At the age of 12, Lexi kicked off her competitive golf career by qualifying as the youngest golfer ever to play in the U.S. Women’s Open. Since then, she has transformed into a golf star and idol for golfers of all ages. Lexi turned pro at 15 years old, won on the LPGA Tour by the age of 16, has secured 11 career wins on the LPGA Tour and is a two-time member of the U.S. Olympic women’s golf team. She is a global force and has had victories on the Ladies European Tour (2011 Dubai Ladies Classic) and on the LPGA of Japan (2016 World Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup).
Lexi has a passion for supporting others. In 2017, she partnered with the SEAL Legacy Foundation with her own Lexi’s Legacy Challenge that raised funds for the support of families of wounded and fallen United States Navy SEALs. She has spoken out about the importance of creating equal opportunities and pay equity for women and used her platform to raise awareness about uterine cancer. Additionally, she is an entrepreneur, launching her own skincare line Lexi Skin in 2021.
“Lexi is passionate about everything she does, whether it’s playing golf, launching her own business, or helping others, and she serves as an excellent role model for the younger generation,” said Lawrence Calcano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of iCapital. “Lexi’s dedication to excellence aligns with our commitment to our clients and partners. We are thrilled to welcome Lexi as an iCapital brand ambassador and look forward to kicking off the partnership and welcoming Lexi to our team.”
“I am excited to represent my hard-working partners at iCapital and kick off the 2022 tour with their support. I have the utmost respect for the iCapital brand and all that it represents,” said Lexi. “This partnership will enable me to continue to grow as a business professional and an athlete and I am thankful for the opportunity.”
Lexi joins iCapital Brand Ambassadors Lee Westwood, Will Zalatoris, and Rob Labritz and will debut the iCapital brand on her visor at the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions this week in Orlando, Florida.
