Binance VIP and Institutional Launches Capital Connect: Connecting Investors and Investment Managers
Binance VIP & Institutional has launched Capital Connect, a platform for Binance VIP-level users that facilitates connections between Investors and Investment Managers.
Investors can access a variety of Investment Managers for free that provide support over a range of strategies.
VIP-level clients that have been onboarded with Binance Institutional and passed identity verification (KYC/KYB) can participate (subject to regional restrictions).
With the global launch of the Capital Connect Platform on 10th May 2023, get acquainted with the must-know details of our brand-new service.
What Is Capital Connect?
Capital Connect is a free service for all existing Binance VIP clients, subject to regional restrictions. Users can apply for access to the platform as either an Investor or Investment Manager. As an Investor, you can browse different funds and diversify your portfolio allocations. Investors will be able to choose Investment Managers based on strategies, redemption terms, fees, AUM, and Sharpe Ratios. As an Investment Manager, you can increase the awareness of your funds and develop new clients.
It’s important to note that:
All eligible Binance VIP clients in approved regions can apply as Investors.
All Investment Managers listed must complete Binance KYB verification, serviced by reputable Fund Administrators. Past return data needs to be verified by their respective Fund Admin.
Binance does not filter or select Investment Managers or Investors and will not be involved in subsequent discussions.
What Are the Benefits of Capital Connect?
With Capital Connect, we want to offer a free service that addresses the pain points of information disclosure and networking inefficiencies that institutional investors and fund managers face today. Capital Connect does this by helping to create information standards and reduce inefficiencies through a unified platform. The service is easily accessible within the same Binance Institutional navigation menu.
Key benefits of the service for users include:
A streamlined and cost-free platform for Investors and Investment Managers to connect within the Binance Ecosystem.
Requirements for listed Investment Managers to provide records of monthly returns verified by reputable fund administrators. This record can help Investors reference a fund’s past performance.
Automated and secure exchange of information on the platform. Participants remain anonymous to protect user information until a connection is completed.
Only Investors can initiate connection requests, after which Investment Managers can analyze the investors’ profiles and determine whether to accept. Binance will not be involved in any discussions between parties after a successful connection.
How to Use Capital Connect?
To use Capital Connect, you must first apply for access as an Investor or Investment Manager. Both roles are only available to Binance VIP-level users who have completed the verification process.
Requirements for Investment Managers
Alongside being a Binance VIP-level user, Investment Managers must pass the KYB (Know Your Business) verification process. To be listed, Investment Managers must also provide a record of their past performance verified by reputable fund administrators.
Requirements for Investors
Investors must be Binance VIP-level users and pass the KYB or KYC (Know Your Customer) and have an initial minimum deposited balance of $100K. Note that Binance will not be involved in the matching or funding process, and subsequent dealings between participants are independent and separate from the Binance platform.
Getting Started With Capital Connect
First, head to the [Capital Connect] page. The platform will now ask you to pick your role: Investor or Investment Manager.
Using the [Fund Finder], you can browse, sort through, and filter the list of funds available.
By default, the results are sorted in descending order according to Assets Under Management (AUM). Each fund will have a detailed view, including size, investment requirements, fees, redemption terms, strategy descriptions, and monthly returns.
Investors can initiate a connection request via Capital Connect, and Investment Managers have the option to accept or decline. Once accepted, the Investor can start a conversation with the Investment Manager.
Connecting With Investment Managers in Just a Few Clicks
With Capital Connect, one of our goals has been to provide a new way for Investors and Investment Managers to connect. We hope this will also demonstrate our commitment to supporting the growth and adoption of digital assets. Innovative technologies require innovative products like Capital Connect too.
