UK fintech Bite Investments established a New York City office and named Sean Clifford as president –Americas in a bid to expand access to the alternative investment arena.
Previously Head of Business Development at Pretium Partners, Clifford will seek to grow the sales and tech positions of Bite and leverage the opportunities in the U.S. marketplace.
He brings over 25 years’ experience in the alternative investments industry including leadership positions at GoldenTree Asset Management and ZAIS Group.
Bite provides fund managers with a digital platform to streamline client due diligence, compliance, distribution, client onboarding and investor relations processes and workflows.
“Bite’s platform offers the market a powerful, end-to-end enterprise solution to streamline and digitize how it engages with potential and existing investors,” said Clifford in a statement. “In addition, our marketplace provides access to premier alternative investment funds at minimums below what is typical in the institutional market.”
In Clifford’s view, Bite is well positioned to capitalize on the continued expansion of the private market asset class as it moves beyond institutional access to individual investors.
“Our objective is to assist in the democratization of this asset class, and we are convinced we have the platform to do so,” he added.
