Schroders Capital and iCapital team up to expand global private equity access

Private markets manager Schroders Capital and global fintech platform iCapital have entered into a partnership that enables Schroders Capital to broaden access to wealth managers for its semi-liquid global private equity strategy.

In this collaboration, Schroders Capital will use iCapital’s technology platform and operating system to manage the investment and education experience at scale. By listing the Schroders Capital semi-liquid global private equity strategy on the platform, the asset manager has gained access to iCapital’s global network of wealth managers, supporting the expansion of its distribution strategy.

Inspiring innovation: Private equity’s role in environmental solutions

The partnership initially targets Latin America, Asia, and Switzerland, reflecting Schroders Capital’s commitment to expanding private market access for private wealth clients.

Georg Wunderlin, global head of private assets, Schroders Capital, commented: “The 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.”

Schroders boosts private markets plan with launch of Schroders Capital

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.”

Marco Bizzozero, head of international at iCapital, added: “Wealth managers globally are increasingly interested in how private markets can potentially offer enhanced diversification and superior returns for their clients’ portfolios.”
