Alto Partners With Assure To Enable Investors To Seamlessly Accept IRA Capital To Fuel Private Funding
New Partnership Will Allow Deal Sponsors to Raise Additional Capital and Help Individual Investors Participate in Private Markets Using Their Retirement Funds
Alto Solutions, Inc. (Alto), the next-generation self-directed IRA platform that makes it easy to invest in alternative assets using retirement funds, announced a partnership with Assure, the leading provider of outsourced administrative and transaction services for the private investment marketplace. This new partnership will enable deal sponsors who are raising capital to invest in startups and other private opportunities through Assure to seamlessly accept IRA capital using Alto’s platform.
Assure works with thousands of fund managers to raise capital for angel and private asset investments through special purpose vehicles (SPVs). Assure’s fast and affordable SPVs decrease traditional administration costs by over 90%. As SPVs become an increasingly popular way to raise capital for a single investment through multiple sources, this partnership with Alto opens up a new funding source for deal sponsors by allowing IRA capital into their deals.
“The majority of household investable assets today are held in retirement accounts, and the growth in IRAs is expected to continue to outpace other retirement account types,” said Tara Fung, Chief Revenue Officer of Alto. “By linking Alto and Assure together, deal sponsors can raise more capital. Furthermore, we are helping increase access for individual investors to better participate in private markets by unlocking what is often their largest investment account—their retirement account.”
IRAs have become a powerful investment funding source for many reasons, including their significant tax benefits and opportunity for duration matching. Alto simplifies the process by allowing deal sponsors to accept IRA capital with just a few clicks through its 100% online experience. Additionally, Alto offers lower IRA fees for investors with transparent pricing and no commissions.
“At Assure, our goal is to enable organizers to do what they do best—find deals and build relationships. We do this by offering SPVs that simplify the deal process and fund administration, and in doing so, reduce costs to fund managers and founders,” said Jeremy Neilson, Co-founder and CEO of Assure. “This means that deals of all sizes are now feasible, including smaller deals that historically would not have been viable given SPV and fund administration setup costs. Providing this access is part of our mission, which is why we are excited to partner with Alto to unlock another investor funding source for organizers and increase investment access further.”
