Moonfare, the world’s largest digital business-to-consumer platform for private equity investing by assets under management (AUM), has reached €3bn AUM and expects further growth this year as individual investors continue to allocate to the asset class.
“Reaching this milestone is another testimony to Moonfare’s success in democratising access to private equity investing," said Moonfare Founder and CEO Steffen Pauls. “I am proud of the hard work the Moonfare team does behind the scenes to curate our strategies and private equity managers, and to ensure an unparalleled digital experience while creating a community of like minds. Our ambition is to make sure that every person for whom private equity is relevant has access to institutional-quality opportunities, and we look forward to further expansion in the coming months and years.”
Moonfare’s registered membership community now comprises more than 60,000 individuals.
Individual investors currently hold about half of all global wealth, but only 5% of assets invested in alternative investment funds. However, this is expected to increase significantly. Consultants Bain & Co predict individual wealth invested in alternatives will grow 12% annually through to 2032, fuelled by the search for higher risk-adjusted returns and diversification, and as the availability of investments increases.
Moonfare’s aim is to ensure these investors, both professional and eligible retail investors, have access to managers with strong, consistent track records. In February, it launched its ELTIF 2.0 retail strategy in relevant jurisdictions, offering access to a highly curated portfolio of private equity funds and co-investments starting at €10,000. The portfolio is based on the same rigorous due diligence process that sees fewer than 5% of the 200+ funds it screens annually make it onto the Moonfare platform.
