Schroders widens access to semi-liquid PE play
Private markets fund leverages iCapital tech platform to manage investments at scale
The Asset 24 Apr 2024

Global private markets manager Schroders Capital and fintech platform iCapital have partnered to enable Schroders to broaden access to wealth managers for its semi-liquid global private equity (PE) strategy.

Through this collaboration, which initially focuses on markets in Latin America, Asia and Switzerland, Schroders will leverage iCapital’s technology platform and operating system to manage the investment and education experience at scale.

iCapital Marketplace, the company says, is a one-stop-shop connecting wealth managers, financial advisers and their clients to a wide selection of alternative investment opportunities offered by the world’s leading asset managers.

By listing the semi liquid global PE strategy on the platform, the manager gains access to iCapital’s global network of wealth managers, supporting the expansion of its distribution strategy.

“The partnership is an important step in our strategic priority of ensuring that we are a leading partner for wealth managers and private banks to better access private markets,” adds Georg Wunderlin, Schroders’ global head of private assets. “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 the strategy apart from many other comparable PE funds in the market.”
