Artivest, a state-of-the-art technology platform that connects leading private equity and hedge funds with a wider audience of suitable investors, today announced a $15 million round of financing led by prominent global investment firm KKR, with existing investors RRE Ventures, Peter Thiel, Nyca Partners, Anthemis Group and FinTech Collective participating as well. Artivest will use the funding to accelerate the growth of its technology, infrastructure and sales teams and the implementation of its product roadmap.
‘It is a great honor and a meaningful endorsement to KKR, one of our first partners. ”
‘Artivest combines leading technology with feeder fund operating tools that will further open the door for financial advisors and high net worth investors looking to commit capital to a wide range of top private equity funds. Most private equity firms are very interested in accessing this capital, but do not have the technical or operational capacity to do so today. We look forward to partnering with Artivest as they expand their business,” said Ed Brandman, Chief Information Officer of KKR, who will join the Board of Directors of Artivest.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in New York City, Artivest provides access to a selection of privately offered alternative investment funds at a lower investment minimum. To date, Artivest has offered the largest private equity and venture capital funds and will soon be offering hedge funds.
‘The process of investing in private placements – previously inefficient for all concerned – has not changed in any meaningful way for decades. A number of trends have come together, including the increasing focus of alternative funds on individual investors and the growing appetite of investors for all kinds of alternatives. At this crucial moment, we are bringing a much-needed digital upgrade to private investment,” said Artivest CEO and Founder James Waldinger. ‘It is a great honor and a meaningful endorsement to KKR, one of our first partners. ”
High net value investors-a crucial and complicated customer base.
Qualified investors, including those served by the rapidly growing independent consulting community, are fueling a new wave of demand for alternative strategies and are, in fact, the fastest growing segment of assets allocated to alternative funds. With equity markets regularly testing new highs and publicly available fixed income investments providing unsatisfactory returns, clients and their advisors are actively seeking alternative solutions for wealth compounding over long periods of time. Top private equity and hedge funds, which have historically raised capital exclusively from institutions and those capable of carrying out institutional checks, are forced by this investor base but are challenged by the implications of sourcing, onboarding and serving a much more fragmented clientele.
Artivest provides a multi-pronged solution for linking these two electoral districts on a scale Key features for qualified investors include more accessible investment minimums, online access to intuitive fund metric displays, and electronic completion of all legal documents. Funds use Artivest technology to manage investor relations and customer operations on a scale Both user types benefit from best-in-class security and encryption protection.
