Mara Invest Fund


Mara is pioneering the retailisation / democratisation trend, by going further than other platforms to deliver individual access for private funds. Our low cost SPVs are a great way for private funds to effectively lower their minimum ticket from millions to thousands, whilst retaining the investor relationship and outsourcing all the regulatory and administrative headache to us. Mara was established by industry insiders from the private funds industry that were frustrated at their own lack of access, yet determined to disrupt the industry for the better. Mara is supported from influential private market professionals that share our vision and enthusiasm to deliver our outsourced private wealth solution to funds. 


We are private markets through and through:  our team has spent most of their careers in the private funds world, as fund investors, investor relations, fund accounting, and fund management professionals. We get the intricacies of private fund structures and the regulatory environment surrounding individual investor access and will take away the onboarding burden for you. 

Regulated solution: Mara has sufficient regulatory cover to operate in a compliant manner to deliver SPV solutions for you.

Keep the investor relationships without the administrative headache: we take care of investor qualification; KYC/AML checks; onboarding; cash management; and ongoing reporting, so you can onboard small ticket individual investors with ease.

Making your fund more accessible: use our SPV solution to bring in junior/mid level employees, portfolio company executives, friends, family, service providers, and many more.

Any questions

Frequently asked questions

  • Mara Invest Limited is an appointed representative of Talbot Capital Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our profile on the FCA
    register can be found here. Mara Nominees Limited is a separate dormant administrative entity that will hold the shares of investors.

  • We can accept any investor jurisdiction that your fund has permissions to accept.

  • The Nominee is merely a legal entity to hold interests in your Fund on behalf of the investor, with no discretionary investment decisions being made for investors by us.
    As such, investors are making the decisions themselves to invest in the Master Fund and are not advised to do so by any investment manager. Additionally, the Nominee
    does not have an Investment Policy statement or an Investment Management Agreement between investors. All these factors deem the Nominee not to be an AIF.

  • Mara making a single commitment to the Fund on behalf of multiple underlying investors. This would result in your Fund’s administrator dealing with a single named LP,
    and providing a single capital account statement etc.

  • We conduct KYC on all investors. We are happy to share any KYC/AML information on each investor to save you doing the work, but other fund manager clients have
    been happy with us signing a “letter of comfort” attesting to us doing these checks appropriately and providing aggregated information on underlying investors.

    Our SPV also takes care of FATCA reporting on each underlying investor, so our SPVs can be an effective tool for you to effectively outsource this burdensome work to
    us to save you time and money.

  • We work with you to determine the appropriate capital call schedule for our investors in line with your forecasted deployment schedule. We may call 100% of investor
    capital at day 1 if you plan to invest over 1-2 years, or we may instead call 25% at day 1 if you have a steady deployment pace over 4 years.

  • If we have a drawdown structure, a side letter will be required to protect other investors in our SPV from any liabilities brought about by any one defaulting investor in the
    SPV. Typical LPAs treat the whole SPV entity as a defaulting investor even if only one investor happens to default. We have templated for this to share with your legal
