Richmond, VA – WealthForge has announced the release of Altigo, a new straight through processing technology platform for alternative investments. Traditionally, the majority of alternative investment transactions require a lengthy, error-prone, paper-based process. Altigo transforms that process with a frictionless, technology-enabled user experience for advisors, dramatically reduced errors and cost for sponsors, and expedited transactions for all parties involved.
“The poor experience related to investing in alternative assets is a limiting factor in the ability for these products to gain traction among advisors and their high net worth clients. If straight through processing provides a stable foundation for alternative investments, as it has for other asset classes, then we can expect it to expand the pie for everyone involved,” says Bill Robbins, CEO of WealthForge.
WealthForge is offering Altigo to sponsors, who in turn make the platform available to their distribution partners as a more streamlined and user-friendly transaction experience. WealthForge has signed Cantor Fitzgerald as the first major sponsor on the platform, which will host a variety of the sponsor’s alternative investment products, including 1031 Exchange DSTs, a Qualified Opportunity Fund, and NAV non-traded REITs. Additional advisor-focused functionality is slated to debut later this year.
“Cantor Fitzgerald is excited to be the first sponsor utilizing the Altigo platform. Consistent with our leadership position in the industry, improving the investor, advisor and back office experience is a key focus as we continue to scale our unique solution set of real estate and cash management programs” added Jay Frank, Head of Distribution at Cantor Fitzgerald Capital.
This announcement follows a year of strong growth for WealthForge. In 2018, the company processed over $500 million in alternative investment transactions and surpassed $1 billion in lifetime transactions. They have also been recognized recently as one of the fastest growing private companies by placing #932 on the Inc. 5000 and #189 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 thanks to 531% revenue growth between 2015 and 2017.
“Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure that WealthForge can deliver exceptional technology and regulatory services to our clients. Now, with the launch of Altigo, we look forward to building upon our momentum for even further growth,” says Mat Dellorso, Chief Strategy Officer and Co-Founder.
WealthForge provides technology solutions developed by regulatory experts to streamline investments into alternative securities. WealthForge was founded upon the idea that alternative capital markets are opaque, inefficient, and rife with barriers—and that needed to change.
