Posted by Muhammad Ibrahim Masudi

Mercury Capital Advisors, LLC (Mercury), one of the world’s elite institutional capital raising enterprises specializing in alternative investments, is pleased to announce the launch of Mercury iFunds™ It is a state of the art, end-to-end, digital solution offering a broad range of alternative investments across the liquidity spectrum.

This mobile-responsive fintech platform of curated institutional-quality offerings is intuitive and simple to navigate. It is the only digital platform operated by a leading global capital intermediary having relationships with over 2,500 of the largest, most sophisticated institutions in the world including sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, insurance companies, and endowments. Mercury is now providing the RIA community, family offices, and other wealth advisors transparent institutional pricing and exclusive access to leading-edge alternatives across 18 different investment categories.

This is precisely the strategy advocated by sophisticated institutional investors – that portfolio composition in search of alpha-generation must include an allocation to “buy and hold” assets. An investment through the Mercury iFunds™ platform gives investors exposure to private funds with a minimum subscription of $100,000, significantly less than that typically required by the underlying managers.
