NEW YORK — iCapital Network1, the global financial technology platform driving access and efficiency in alternative investing for the asset and wealth management industries, today announced that its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lawrence Calcano, has been named one of the Top 50 Financial Technology CEOs of 2021 by The Financial Technology Report.
The Financial Technology Report is a comprehensive source providing industry executives, professionals, and investors with important news and market research on the financial technology industry. In curating this year’s list, the publication reviewed thousands of CEOs from which a select set were invited to participate in the nomination process. Nominations were then evaluated based on a detailed review of each candidate’s demonstrated leadership capabilities, career achievements, commitment to delivering innovative technology, and influence in the field and among peers. This year’s awardees are some of the most accomplished leaders in the fintech sector.
Mr. Calcano joined iCapital shortly after its founding in 2013, and his leadership has been a driving force behind iCapital’s success. His vision has shaped the iCapital platform capabilities and services, and the company has established a consortium of strategic partners and investors under his leadership. iCapital has also built out an extensive suite of research and educational resources for advisors as part of Mr. Calcano’s commitment to comprehensive and accessible education to help enable client success. Mr. Calcano was recognized last year on Business Insider’s list of people transforming business for his role in driving iCapital’s momentum and offering steadfast leadership as businesses shifted to tackle challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s an honor to be recognized on this list and I’m thankful to represent the outstanding team at iCapital,” said Mr. Calcano. “One of my top priorities as a leader is to create an atmosphere of collaboration to make iCapital a place where everyone can do their best work and prioritize the success of our clients. I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished together over the last several years and I am excited to continue realizing our mission to power the global alternative investment marketplace.”
