Schroders Capital, a global private markets manager, and iCapital1, the global fintech platform driving the world’s alternative investment marketplace for the wealth management industry, today announce a strategic partnership that enables Schroders Capital to broaden access to wealth managers for its semi-liquid global private equity strategy.

Through this collaboration, Schroders Capital, which provides investors with a broad range of private markets investment opportunities, portfolio building blocks and customised strategies, will leverage iCapital’s cutting-edge technology platform and operating system to manage the investment and education experience at scale.

iCapital Marketplace is a one-stop-shop connecting wealth managers, financial advisors, and their clients to a wide selection of alternative investment opportunities offered by the world’s leading asset managers. By listing the Schroders Capital semi liquid global private equity strategy on the platform Schroders Capital gains access to iCapital’s global network of wealth managers, supporting the expansion of its distribution strategy.

With $93.7 billion in assets under management2, Schroders Capital offers a broad range of private market investment opportunities to institutional investors and private wealth investors, including a series of semi-liquid funds. The partnership with iCapital, which initially focuses on markets in Latin America, Asia and Switzerland, is testament to Schroders Capital’s aim to support access to private markets among private wealth clients.

Georg Wunderlin, Global Head of Private Assets, Schroders Capital, said:

 “The partnership between Schroders Capital and iCapital is an important step in our strategic priority of ensuring we are a leading partner for wealth managers and private banks to better access private markets.

 “The Schroders Capital semi-liquid global private equity strategy provides an even broader set of investors with the means to invest in some of the most established global private equity open-ended funds worldwide. With a multi-year track record and a strong focus on small-mid buyouts in Europe, North America and growth investments in Asia, this sets it apart from many other comparable private equity funds in the market.”

Gonzalo Binello, Head of Latin America, Schroders, said:

“During the last decade or so we have seen the private assets investment market growing in demand and evolving its pipeline. Latin America has not been an exception to this global trend, and we have seen this growth evidenced in the strong demand from the region for our global private equity ’evergreen‘ Luxembourg-based strategy two years ago, especially from countries such as Chile, Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico and the US market.  

“Private equity is the new must-have product for Latin American investors. To meet this evolving need, Schroders Capital has decided to extend the availability of the ’evergreen‘ strategy through the iCapital platform to allow our clients to choose the option that better suits their investment objectives and operational preferences.

“Schroders Capital has been building a compelling range of next generation ’evergreen‘ private assets strategies, that we have the intention to bring to Latin America in due course to continue working for our clients’ benefit.”

Marco Bizzozero, Head of International at iCapital, said:

“We are delighted to partner with Schroders Capital, a leading private markets manager with over 25 years of private equity investment experience, to support them in their mission to be at the forefront of unlocking new private markets investment opportunities to the wealth management channel.

 “This partnership demonstrates that iCapital is the partner of choice for asset managers accessing the growing pool of private wealth, as wealth managers globally are increasingly interested in how private markets can potentially offer enhanced diversification and superior returns for their clients’ portfolios.”

Key risk considerations

Currency risk: The fund may lose value as a result of movements in foreign exchange rates, otherwise known as currency rates.

Emerging Markets & Frontier risk: Emerging markets, and especially frontier markets, generally carry greater political, legal, counterparty, operational and liquidity risk than developed markets.

Interest rate risk: The fund may lose value as a direct result of interest rate changes.

Liquidity risk: The fund invests in illiquid instruments, which are harder to sell. Illiquidity increases the risks that the fund will be unable to sell its holdings in a timely manner in order to meet its financial obligations at a given point in time. It may also mean that there could be delays in investing committed capital into the asset class.

Market risk: The value of investments can go up and down and an investor may not get back the amount initially invested.

Performance risk: Investment objectives express an intended result but there is no guarantee that such a result will be achieved. Depending on market conditions and the macro economic environment, investment objectives may become more difficult to achieve.

Operational risk: Operational processes, including those related to the safekeeping of assets, may fail. This may result in losses to the fund.

Private Equity risk: Private equity strategies are subject to a variety of risk conditions, including, but not limited to, the risk that too much is paid for acquiring a business, new or unproven management, new or less mature business strategies or unsuccessful integration with existing businesses.
