Banrion Capital Announces Official Launch
Banrion Capital Management has announced its official launch. Founded by CEO Shana Orczyk Sissel, an industry veteran and alternatives expert, Banrion aims to arm advisors with the resources they need to incorporate both public and private alternative investments into their practices helping alternatives become a core part of an investment portfolio.
The flagship product of Banrion's suite of offerings is its proprietary outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO) technology powered by technology firm AlphaBot, enabling advisors to evaluate and scale their alternative investment allocations efficiently through access to a research portal, wide-ranging educational content and a central database to communicate with strategic partners, as well as a dedicated investment officer for ongoing support as needed.
"The traditional approach to asset management has unfairly viewed alternative investments as complex and inaccessible," said Sissel. 'This approach is flawed, creating undue friction for advisors and clients alike in navigating the alternative investments industry. Banrion strives to be a solution for the execution of and communication around alternative investing. Through our tech-driven approach, we aim to create greater investor access to the exciting world of alternative investments."
Alternatives are growing in popularity, with the current economic environment driving more investor interest in them than ever before. S&P Global reported last year that assets under management in the global alternatives industry were expected to nearly double between the end of 2021 and 2026, climbing to $23.21trn from an estimated $13.32trn at the end of 2021.
