NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Templum, Inc. (“Templum”), the operating system for private markets and alternative assetsTM is pleased to announce that the company is working with

“At SoFi, we spend every day working to empower our 8M+ members to get their money right so that they can achieve financial independence – and investing is an important part of that – but unfortunately, many valuable investment vehicles have been left inaccessible to the everyday investor,” said Anthony Noto, CEO of SoFi. “We recently changed that paradigm by expanding access to alternative investments. As we look ahead, SoFi is partnering with Templum to find even more ways to give SoFi Members unique access, as we continue to deliver on our commitment to providing them with unmatched choice and flexibility when it comes to investing their hard-earned money.”

Over the past decade, alternatives have expanded rapidly, becoming an important way to build and protect wealth, with global alternative assets under management expected to reach $24.5tn by 2028, compared with $16.3tn today.1 Despite the growing demand, the landscape remains fragmented and manual, limiting access, innovation, and investor confidence. Together, SoFi and Templum are bringing best-in-class technology and infrastructure capabilities to facilitate access to one of the fastest growing sectors of investments.

Alternative investments have the potential to provide higher and uncorrelated returns compared to traditional investments and offer opportunities to invest in assets with significant growth potential.2 While alternatives have become increasingly common in institutional portfolios, individual investors have had limited access to these assets. By bringing access to alternatives and private markets, individual investors will have the opportunity to review unique and sought after investments to build portfolios that can have improved returns and diversification.

“Partnering with SoFi is a great example of how like-minded firms can come together to increase investment access and opportunity,” notes Christopher Pallotta, CEO and founder, Templum. “Templum’s technology, regulatory foundation, and Alternatives expertise, combined with our work with leading fund managers, allows us to bring some of the most sought-after investments to SoFi. We are excited to be with SoFi at the forefront of one of the largest transformations in markets today.”
