The partnership is aimed at expanding access to Griffin’s alternative investment solutions for financial advisers, wealth management intermediaries as well as RIAs.

iCapital’s technology solution automates the alternative investing subscription process. It is said to bring transparency into all aspects of investing process for advisers and their HNW clients.

Griffin Capital chairman and CEO Kevin Shields said: “We are excited to partner with iCapital and to integrate their industry-leading technology.

“This investment in our platform is a continuation of our commitment to making it easier and more efficient for advisers to provide their clients with access to institutional-quality investment strategies.”

iCapital Network chairman and CEO Lawrence Calcano noted that alternative investments have historically been difficult to implement for the wealth management community, leaving advisers and investers without access to the benefits they can provide.

Speaking on the partnership, Calcano added: “We are thrilled to partner with Griffin Capital to support our shared ambition to make access to alternatives a reality for advisors.”

Earlier this week, BlackRock expanded its existing partnership with iCapital to enhance its access to private market investments for wealth managers.

Last week, fund distribution platform Allfunds teamed up with the platform to strengthen its private market and sub-advisory ambitions.

Founded in 2013, iCapital provides technology and service solutions that help wealth management, banking, and asset management industries facilitate access to private markets investments for their HNW clients.

In January this year, the firm agreed to purchase the assets of AI Insight to expand the alternative investment education suite for financial advisers.
