iCapital Network, a global financial technology platform driving access and efficiency in alternative investing for the asset and wealth management industries, has appointed Anastasia Amoroso as the firm’s Chief Investment Strategist.
In this role, Amoroso will present iCapital’s perspective on the evolving dynamics of the global investing marketplace, analyse public and private market investing opportunities; provide insight regarding various alternative investment strategies; and issue near- and longer-term outlooks particularly for hedge funds and private equity. She will report to Eileen Duff, Managing Partner and Head of Fund Management and Research, and work closely with Lawrence Calcano, Chairman and CEO and the entire senior team.
Amoroso joins iCapital from JP Morgan, where she spent eight years, most recently as Head of Thematic Strategy in the firm’s Private Bank. In that position, Amoroso set investment strategy and developed tactical global macro recommendations and thematic investment ideas for highly sophisticated family offices and institutional wealth management clients. Throughout her career, she has built a reputation as an insightful analyst and thoughtful strategist spanning broad investing categories including alternatives. She appears frequently as a speaker at high profile industry events and in the financial media.
“Anastasia is a leading voice providing guidance for investors worldwide, bringing clarity and insight into the complexities of world financial markets, including invaluable guidance on navigating the private markets,” says Calcano. “Her addition to the team further reinforces iCapital’s expertise in alternative investments and our commitment to the ongoing education of advisors and their clients.”
“iCapital has a richly deserved reputation for transforming every aspect of the global alternatives investing space over the past few years. I’m thrilled to be joining the team at this exciting time in the company’s history,” says Amoroso.
Prior to JP Morgan, Amoroso spent seven years with Merrill Lynch, and she began her career as a research assistant at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Amoroso will be based out of iCapital’s New York headquarters.
