Mercury Capital Advisors expands iFunds distribution team


Mercury Capital Advisors, the global placement agent specialising in private investments, has appointed Donal Mastrangelo as Executive Director and Head of US iFunds Distribution.

With over 25 years of experience in business development and client service within the investment industry, Mastrangelo will oversee business growth for the Mercury iFunds platform, an innovative digital solution offering a comprehensive range of curated non-correlated investments to the wealth management community through financial intermediaries.
“iFunds provides digital access to an ecosystem of the same proprietary suite of leading-edge alternatives managers and pre-IPOs that we source for our most sophisticated institutional clientele. Through this simple-to-use, mobile responsive and intuitive platform, investment advisors are now provided with investible solutions offered in smaller increments coupled with a compelling fee structure,” says Michael Ricciardi, CEO and Co-Founder. “In our effort the ideal person for this leadership role there were none as uniquely qualified as Donal due to his extensive experience working with asset managers, allocators and investors. We’re confident that his passion for the business and collaborative work ethic will significantly expand the reach of the iFunds platform.”
Prior to joining Mercury, Mastrangelo was a Director at Guggenheim Partners covering middle market consultants, multi-family offices, RIAs and bank trust clients. He was responsible for private funds, separately managed accounts as well as public fund distribution and service across all clientele. Previously, Mastrangelo was the Founding Principal at NorthRoad Capital Management, an international equity manager, and was the National Sales Manager at Lazard Asset Management. Mastrangelo has a BA from Hamilton College and is a Certified Investment Management Analyst.
“I look forward to leading the distribution team and growing the adoption of the iFunds platform. As an innovative digital solution, iFunds is well-positioned to disrupt the wealth management industry and to simplify access to leading edge investment opportunities” says Mastrangelo.
In addition to Donal Mastrangelo, Mercury has appointed Tyler DeCotis and Tristan Sperry as analysts in the iFunds distribution team. Tyler previously worked for Eaton Vance Investment Managers as an internal business developer covering the major wirehouse firms, and Tristan’s prior role was as a business developer for W.P. Carey’s retail fundraising arm specialising in non-traded and private alternative investments. The appointment of these three individuals is a major step forward in Mercury Capital Advisors’ objective to develop their digital service, and will increase iFunds’ penetration nationally.
