Changing the Game: DarcMatter Sheds Light on Alternative Investments
By CultureBanx Team
A lot of the alternative investment industry lacks transparency and many tasks still require manual attention, so Natasha Bansgopaul co-founder of DarcMatter created a platform to change that. The company’s alternative investment marketplace is used to connect fund managers actively raising capital to investors globally, all while allowing them to access, execute documents and invest in alternative fund products. Typically, many of these tasks require the participation of numerous intermediaries that provide compliance, security, and transparency. “We are using fintech solutions to reclaim a lot of the traditional backend processes,” Bansgopaul said. They work within the accredited investor universe that tends to look for more structured opportunities, “specifically private illiquid funds that have at least 2-3 years of performance history.” With one of the most diverse fintech management teams, DarcMatter had $240 million in investment interest indicated on the platform for 2017 and they are on track to double that for 2018.
