The June edition of the Alternative Investor is out today – How tech is changing private capital markets – featuring Argentex, Marex Solutions and Pactio, plus a little AI-generated piece.

  • Pactio’s Eric Heimark looks at how tech has the potential to revolutionise private equity operations.
  • Marex Solutions’ Nilesh Jethwa turns to derivatives and building tech that can faster and more accurately price a broader range of products, empowering investors and advisors.
  • Argentex’s Aaron Bird discusses the importance of a holistic and interconnected approach to transformative tech.
  • We then turn to Ask AI to see what it says about its role in private capital markets…

As usual, there’s also a summary of the past month’s performances and various topical stories on acquisitions, changing of the guard, value gaps, funds shutting, redemptions, activist moves, short pain and private capital trends – across private equity, hedge funds, real estate and family offices. 

Our regulatory roundup this month includes:

  • EU-UK Memorandum of understanding on financial services cooperation
  • SEC issues record whistleblower award
  • Commodity Futures Trading Commission charges commodity pool operator in a $6m Ponzi Scheme
  • WhatsApp: U.S. regulators charge HSBC and Scotia Capital with record-keeping failures
  • Marketing Cayman Funds in the United Arab Emirates: Securities and Commodities Authority update
