AllianceBernstein broadens access to alts with iCapital

Tuesday, July 31, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - AllianceBernstein L.P. a leading global investment firm with $540 billion in assets under management, today announced an agreement with iCapital Network to provide a white label platform that will enable high-net-worth (HNW) investors at Registered Investment Advisory firms and multi-family offices to access AB's alternative investments platform. iCapital technology will be used to help AB simplify access to its alternative investments, streamline the subscription processes and performance reporting, and improve the overall advisor and investor experience for AB's clients.

"With today's lower expected return environment, potential for rising interest rates, inflationary pressures, and increasing volatility, it is critical for investors to maintain a well-designed allocation to alternatives that can help their portfolios weather uncertain markets," said Matthew Bass, Head of Global Product Strategy and Alternatives Business Development at AB. "This partnership with iCapital will allow us to better serve sophisticated investors and introduce new ways of generating alpha that were previously out of their reach."

"We are honored that AllianceBernstein has selected iCapital's technology-led approach to augment its operational infrastructure for offering alternative investing opportunities to the high-net-worth segment," said Lawrence Calcano, Chief Executive Officer of iCapital Network. "We see it as yet another vote of confidence from the industry in iCapital's unparalleled technology and our mission to democratize access to alternative investments."
