🎥 Ep. 6: Taking the pulse of private markets with Lawrence Calcano, Chairman & CEO of iCapital

6th episode of the Monthly Alts Pulse - an iCapital x AGM collaboration

Welcome to the 6th episode of a collaboration between iCapital x Alt Goes Mainstream.

Here’s the latest episode of the Monthly Alts Pulse, a live conversation in studio with Lawrence Calcano, the Chairman & CEO of iCapital, who as the leader of a platform that is responsible for the majority of individual and advisor-led investment flows into the alts space, has his finger on the pulse of what’s happening in private markets.

Watch the Monthly Alts Pulse

On this episode, Lawrence and I had a fun and lively discussion. We covered:

  • Will private equity save the day?

  • Why the “educated consumer is the best customer.”

  • Is liquidity the threshold issue of getting more investors to participate in private markets?

  • How 80% of the flows into alts from the wealth channel are currently driven by 20% of the advisor population … and how the next wave of advisors can understand and allocate to alts.

  • How the industry moves from education on alts to education of how alts fit into broader portfolio construction strategies.

  • How do we go from “talk to action” in the allocation of alts.

  • What’s the interplay of technology innovation and product innovation in alts?

  • What is the “technology chassis” for alts?

  • What’s the missing piece from a technology perspective to take alts to the next level?

  • What’s the role that tokenization can play in helping alts go mainstream?

  • Does private markets have its connective tissue?

  • The current status of Michael’s Monthly Bracelet Pulse, featuring Eintracht Frankfurt and Angel City FC bracelets.

Thanks Lawrence for a great episode … looking forward to next month’s conversation!
