New Bite Investments Report Reveals High Expectations for Digital Growth in the Private Capital Industry

New study finds that the pandemic encouraged large firms to enhance technological capacity and smaller firms to capitalize on a first-mover advantage

LONDON, May 23, 2022 /CNW/ -- Bite Investments released a report in association with Mergermarket concluding that enhanced data access and operational efficiencies are the main drivers for digitalization among investment firms. The report, titled "The Tech's Factor: The digitalization of private markets in 2022 and beyond," reveals how digitalization is shaping the private capital industry and how fund managers are adopting to tech, for what purposes and how the size of a firm can be a determining factor in speed, success, and satisfaction.

The report surveyed US senior executives from middle market, boutique funds, and asset managers on the topic of digitalization of the private markets. The research revealed that it is crucial to be ahead of the game when it comes to digital adoption. 90% of firms with AUM of more than US$1bn agree that keeping ahead of the game in regard to technological capabilities at their organization is a top priority.

"Investors are arguably the most important part of the private capital ecosystem. Therefore, catering to their desires and demands is an absolute priority for alternative asset managers. Digital adoption is needed to help enhance this client onboarding," said William Rudebeck, CEO, Bite Investments.

"There are great expectations for digital growth. We found that big firms are much further along in terms of digital adoption and how this will be applied to their value chains. This means that smaller firms can still capitalize on a first-mover advantage among peers," said John West, Managing Editor EMEA at Mergermarket.

"The pandemic has been a catalyst for digital adoption in the private capital industry. But regardless of what happens with Covid-19, the realized benefits of this change are here to stay. We are not going back to the old ways of doing business," Rudebeck added.

The report demonstrates what a digital future would look like for the private markets industry. Key findings include:

"These insights reaffirm that as digitization accelerates, fund managers will have to adapt to continuous tech evolution. Our mission at Bite Investments opens possibilities in alternative investment markets with digitization, and a new forward-thinking approach, enabling firms to configure their own digital platform to improve the experience for existing and prospective investors and limited partners," Rudebeck concluded.


In Q4 2021, Acuris Studios, on behalf of Bite Investments, surveyed 80 senior executives from middle market, boutique funds and asset managers based in the US on the topic of digitalization of the private markets. Forty respondents were from firms with Assets Under Management (AUM) of US$1 billion or more and 40 respondents were from firms with AUM of less than US$1 billion.
