8 Dec Moonfare: The Fintech For Private Equity

IPEC / 18:00 - 19:00

Dear Alumni,                                                                              
You are invited to an online evening event hosted by the INSEAD Private Equity Club (IPEC) on December 8, 2020.

Moonfare: The Fintech For Private Equity, Co-founder Alexander Argyros, MBA’14D
December 8, 2020 Online 18:00
Join us to hear about the fintech scale-up Moonfare, co-founded by INSEAD alum Alexander Argyros in 2016. Moonfare is a digital platform that provides access to top-tier buyout and private equity funds by pooling investments from individual high-net-worth investors and family offices. Since its launch, more than 20 private equity funds such as KKR, CVC, and Carlyle have been offered to qualified investors on its platform, while about 1,000 clients have committed more than €450m in assets under management (as of November 2020). Moonfare is part of the fintech trend that is digitalizing private equity, venture capital, and angel investments. With a minimum commitment of €50K, Moonfare “democratises” this asset class by making it accessible to wider pools of individually held capital beyond the traditional institutional investor.

This event will be via Zoom, featuring a 20-30 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A. It is free but registration is required. Being online enables IPEC Switzerland to comply with public health restrictions for large gatherings while letting us extend this invitation to alumni beyond the Swiss community. We look forward to all of you joining us for this event.
