Driving access and inclusivity to a traditionally exclusive asset class

We gain access to great funds by delivering regulatory solutions for them and in turn offer access to our network. Full dataroom access is available to all investors that complete our regulatory onboarding questionnaire to qualify themselves. The questionnaire is available via the following link: 

We are not phased by big branded name fund managers and enjoy working with mid-market and niche strategies, as these fund managers are able to exploit competitive advantages outside of competition to deliver greater value to investors.

Want to show your fund to our network?

Using Mara's feeder solutions is a great way to get in front of our network, as we automatically show our network funds that we work with as a courtesy.

Feeder structures which we create can be used by fund managers to accept a wider group of friends and family investors into their funds than they would usually accept; including industry professionals, portfolio executives, and junior employees.

What we are referring to as Partnership Capital, is a great way to strengthen relationships with these individuals and foster alignment of interests over the long term. You can read more about these solutions here

If you are a fund manager and are seeking to help a wider group of your network invest in your fund through a low cost structure, get in touch: client.services@marainvest.com

  • What happens to my money after I subscribe to a fund?
    Investments into private funds are not like an investment into a stock, crypto asset or mutual fund, where your money is invested at day 1. Money is typically taken from investors by private fund managers when an investment is needed to be made via a process called a "capital call", in which a notification is sent to the investor requesting the required funding within a specific period. The minimum commitment is not taken from our investors at day 1, but rather taken over the investment period of the private fund, typically 4 years. Because we are acting on behalf of a large number of investors for the fund manager, we make this process easier by taking % of your capital at day 1 as a form of deposit, which sits in the feeder vehicle's bank account until it is required by the fund manager. We then request the remaining capital from you in subsequent periods.
  • How secure is my personal information on your platform?
    We take privacy very seriously and ensure that all data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. We will not sell your data on to any third parties. More information can be found on our "Privacy Policy" which will be shown to you for your review and acknowledgement during the quick onboarding process we ask you to complete before using our platform.
  • Who can make an investment on the platform?
    Our platform can be used by individual investors that meet the "Sophisticated Investor", "Hight Net Worth Investor" and Professional Investor classifications. As part of your registration process to our platform, we will give you a questionnaire to complete to verify which of these classifications you meet. The questionnaire has a number of questions that should take 5 minutes to complete, so please bear with us - we are obliged to give you this as per our own regulatory responsibilities. It is also essential for the Fund's own regulatory responsibilities that you meet these classifications.
  • How can I track the performance of my investments?
    Portfolios are updated every 3 months by fund managers, which is less frequent than investments in the listed equities sector which typically provides frequent market pricing. The Mara team will email you when we receive reporting information from the fund manager, which will include a personal account statement laying out your investment and the remaining amount of commitment left to fund.
  • What if I have any questions about the platform or its products?
    If you get stuck on any part of subscription process for private funds, please email us on client.services@marainvest.com to arrange a time to speak so that we can help you.
  • Is Mara regulated?
    Mara Invest Limited is an Appointed Representative of Talbot Capital Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN: 489839). The regulatory permissions granted to us by Talbot means that we are authorised to arrange deals and market to Qualified Investors: "Sophisticated"; "High Net Worth"; and "Professional".
