iCapital Network Hires HNW Expert Shaw as CMO

Mar 26 2015 | 11:21am ET

Online private equity portal iCapital has hired Hannah Shaw Grove as Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing officer. 

The platform, which enables institutions and qualified investors to search and analyze the performance history of hundreds of fund managers and gain direct access to private funds for lower minimums, aims to grow awareness within the RIA and family-office communities, according to a press release.

Grove has worked in high-net-worth marketing and business development for twenty years. She has written 11 books and hundreds of articles, and is a founder of Private Wealth magazine. Before founding her consulting company, Grove was with Merrill Lynch, Prudential and Fidelity.

iCapital is one of a number of web sites that are utilizing technology to unlock investment channels previously unavailable to a wide swath of the investing community. The company’s secure portal provides qualified investors with research, statistical tools, information and direct access to a diverse group of private funds, while providing PE firms with access to largely untapped pool of retail and semi-retail investment capital.
