Venovate Partners With Capital Hedge to Bring Quality Alternative Investments to Mid-Sized Institutions and Family Offices

Partnership Bridges Access, Transparency, and Efficiency Gaps That Stand Between Issuers and Investors

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2015) - Venovate and Capital Hedge, two innovators in the alternative investing space, announced today a partnership that offers better, faster, and broader access to quality alternative investments for family offices and mid-sized institutions.

Capital Hedge's FINTRX Investor Platform is a leading family office intelligence tool and asset-raising CRM solution for the alternative investment industry. Venovate Marketplace is the online brokerage platform for finding, researching, and investing in private placements. Together, the firms remove the hurdles many mid-sized institutions and family offices face when seeking institutional-quality alternative investments such as venture capital, private equity, real estate, and private companies.

"Many mid-sized institutions and family offices have difficulty sourcing quality investments and getting properly introduced to the issuers as a qualified investor," said Michael Raneri, CEO of Venovate. "Alternative investing has always been a relationship-based business, and the limitations of personal networks have created a fragmented, inefficient marketplace. Our partnership with Capital Hedge is part of our effort to open up the process, create transparency, and make alternatives available to a much bigger pool of qualified investors. We combine smart technology with the support of professionals, delivering a high-tech, high-touch solution."

"We view this as the dawning of a new era for the family office community. Technology is bridging the divide between mid-market institutional investors and quality deal flow, at no cost or commitment," said Russ D'Argento, President and Founder of Capital Hedge and the FINTRX platform. "We're excited to help the family offices we cover get better access to the alternative markets. Working together with Venovate allows us to do just that, as we continue to solidify the FINTRX platform as the gold standard for family office intelligence within the alternative investing space."

Venovate Marketplace, a FINRA registered broker-dealer and member of SIPC, provides the efficiency and transparency that has been lacking in the private securities market. Venovate makes it easy for issuers to comply with regulatory requirements by verifying the accreditation of investors and providing the tools to display appropriate disclosure documents for listings. For investors, Venovate streamlines the due diligence process, providing the necessary information to support an investment decision. In addition, Venovate makes the transaction process more efficient through standardization and more expedient by putting it online.
