The Educational Content Advisors are Seeking on Alternatives
Advisorpedia talked with Courtney Morgan, Senior Vice President of Education at iCapital, live at the 2023 MMI Annual Conference
INVESTORS SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES, RISKS, CHARGES AND EXPENSES OF THE iDIRECT PRIVATE MARKETS FUND (THE “FUND”) BEFORE INVESTING. THIS AND OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND IS CONTAINED IN THE FUND'S PROSPECTUS, WHICH CAN BE OBTAINED BY CALLING 877-562-1686. THE PROSPECTUS SHOULD BE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE INVESTING.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUND
The discussion of the various risks associated with the Fund and the Shares (as defined and described in the Fund’s Prospectus) are not intended to be a complete enumeration or explanation of the risks involved in an investment in the Fund. The Fund should be considered a speculative investment and involves a high degree of risk and may involve loss of capital, up to the entire amount of a shareholder’s investment.
The nature of private equity can result in a lack of transparency due to limited information, and the risk of loss is increased due to speculative strategies employed by the Fund, including investing assets in private equity, private credit, early stage and other private investments which may not perform as expected. More importantly, Fund shares and shares of underlying funds will not be listed on any national securities exchange and are subject to restrictions on transferability, thereby making them illiquid.
Other risks include, but are not limited to, market risk, concentration risk, and potentially less diversification due to the substantial portion of Fund assets invested in manager-specific private equity. The Fund is also subject to the risks of leverage, higher fees and additional layers of expenses, as well as the potential for greater volatility due to Fund assets invested in a limited number of securities, or a focus on particular sectors and geographical regions.
Assets invested in foreign securities exposes the Fund to various geopolitical risks and currency fluctuations typically not applicable in the U.S., and this risk is magnified for emerging markets. The potential for adverse changes in business and tax laws involves tax risk and heightened regulatory scrutiny. The lack of a secondary market for trading private equity subjects the Fund to liquidity risks and may result in greater price risk and potential for inaccuracies in determining fair market value of investments held in the portfolio. Investments acquired in reliance on imperfect information increases counterparty risk and liabilities, and anticipated value may not be realized.
The Fund is distributed by iCapital Markets LLC, an SEC-registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA and SIPC. iCapital Registered Fund Adviser, LLC (the “Adviser”), an affiliate of iCapital Markets LLC, serves as the investment adviser to the Fund. The Adviser is registered as an investment adviser with the Securities and Exchange Commission; however, such registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training and no inference to the contrary should be made. The Adviser is exempt from registration with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a commodity pool operator. The Adviser became investment adviser to the Fund on February 12, 2021. Before February 12, 2021, the Fund was managed by a different investment adviser. Before February 1, 2022, the StepStone Group L.P. (“StepStone”) served as sub-advisor for the Fund. However, as of February 1, 2022, StepStone is no longer the sub-advisor for the Fund. For detailed information about the Adviser’s services and fees, please read the Prospectus of the Fund, which can be found at https://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html or call 855.891.0092 to request a copy.
Investors should be aware that iCapital Markets LLC provides distribution services to the Fund and that iCapital Markets LLC does not provide services to any investor, including any determination regarding whether an investment in the Fund is in the best interests of, or is suitable for, any investor. Investors should exercise their own judgment and/or consult with a professional advisor to determine whether an investment in the Fund is advisable.
