Caprock Sharpens Focus on Private Equity and Venture Capital with New Director of Private Investments

Boise, ID September 1, 2022 – Caprock announces the expansion of its private investment team with the addition of Matthew Smagacz as its Director of Private Investments.

Matthew Smagacz, formerly the Chief Investment Officer for the State of Wyoming, will oversee the more than two billion dollars in Caprock client capital currently deployed in private investments across multiple asset classes. In his role as Caprock’s first Director of Private Investments, Smagacz will also help broaden and extend Caprock’s access to additional private investment opportunities and help refine Caprock’s research and manager diligence processes.

“Caprock is thrilled to have Matt join our team. His demonstrated skill in serving the people of Wyoming makes him particularly well-suited to help Caprock as we continue to bring some of the most highly regarded investment opportunities to the families and institutions we serve,” said Caprock’s Chief Investment Officer, Richard Rock.

Caprock has grown quickly over the past several years, and with the recent growth-equity investment by TA Associates, Caprock plans to further its mission of bringing excellent service and top-tier private investment opportunities to existing clients and new markets nationwide.

Established in 2005, Caprock is a privately owned family office with operations in Newport Beach, Seattle, San Jose, Park City, New York and Boise that advises on over $8 billion in client assets. (09/01/2022).
