Richmond, VA — WealthForge announced today that they have signed an agreement with Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation (“Inland Investments”), one of the nation’s largest sponsors of alternative public and private real estate securities and a part of The Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, Inc. (“Inland”), to utilize Altigo, WealthForge’s electronic processing technology. In 2019, Inland entities collectively raised more than $1.2 billion of capital through their wholesale distribution company, Inland Securities Corporation.
Inland Private Capital Corporation (“IPC”), a subsidiary of Inland Investments and the industry leading securitized 1031 exchange sponsor offering multiple-owner, tax-focused, private placement investments as well as Qualified Opportunity Zone investments throughout the U.S., will leverage Altigo to support its initiative to digitally process its alternative investment product offerings.
“Creating a more investor-centric experience through the use of electronic investment processing is where the industry is headed—and quickly. We’re committed to being at the forefront of this innovation for both our distribution partners and our investors,” says Keith Lampi, president and chief operating officer of IPC.
With the addition of Inland Investments’ programs, Altigo now represents more than 80% of the entire securitized 1031 market by volume based on 2019 raise amounts of sponsors on the platform. This number speaks to an overall trend of increasing adoption of Altigo since its release a little over a year ago. During that time $150 million has been transacted through the platform and agreements have been signed with several other sponsors and independent broker-dealer ﬁrms, expanding both its product availability and user-base.
“The alternative investments market can’t reach its full potential until there is wide adoption of technology across the industry. It takes leaders like Inland Investments to break down barriers and show what is possible in terms of efficiency and scalability. We are excited to be working with such an innovative group,” says Bill Robbins, CEO of WealthForge.
Altigo enables broker-dealer and RIA ﬁrms to digitally access and assist their clients in subscribing to alternative investment products from sponsors like Inland Investments via an intuitive online platform. Features like the transaction-activity dashboard, electronic signature and the ability to pull investor data from an integrated CRM or previously completed investment into a new subscription are designed to create productivity improvements and operational efficiencies, speeding up the process and saving money for both wealth managers and sponsors alike.
