DarcMatter's mission is to enhance capital flow, transparency, and efficiency for investors and asset managers in the alternative investment industry.
Experiencing explosive growth in recent years, alternative investments have become a staple portfolio component for investors worldwide. Until recently, however, the inefficiencies and opacity plaguing the industry have largely remained unsolved. Investors experience major hurdles sourcing the right opportunities due to limited access. At the same time, asset managers struggle to gain exposure amidst a highly competitive fundraising environment.
Despite these difficulties, there has been a recent proliferation of technological developments transforming the ways in which investors source deals and managers raise capital. Founded by a passionate team with deep financial, technical, and operational expertise, DarcMatter was built to enhance capital flow and transparency within the alternative investment industry.
Sang H. Lee is the Co-Founder and CEO of DarcMatter. A leading pioneer within the Financial Services and Technology industries, Sang has worked to push forward necessary regulatory changes, as well as industry buy-in to achieve much of the platform boarding, the industry has seen today. Sang has been recognized as an "Under30CEO Entrepreneur to Watch in New York City" and a "GOOD100" fellow, an annual list of 100 change making entrepreneurs.
Sang is also an international keynote speaker on various topics within FinTech and Cross Border investments, accepting numerous speaking invitations from the UN, International CES, Harvard University, Brown University, the Council on Foreign Relations, MoneyConf, and the Wealth Management Insights Summit, along with many other leading financial and investor oriented conferences.
He has also been featured in both domestic and international publications including Forbes, Bloomberg Radio, Private Wealth Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, CNBC, FINalternatives, and many more.
Formerly an investment banker at leading European investment bank BNP Paribas, Sang has significant experience in the advisory and execution of more than $10.0 Bn equivalent of investment banking transactions in North America. Sang was recognized as "Top Global Talent" and worked on global bank level strategy projects for the bank’s Executive Committee.
