DALLAS, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Solovis, a multi-asset class portfolio management, analytics and reporting platform for limited partners and asset allocators, today announced it has raised $8 million in a Series A round. The funding was led by Edison Partners, a leading growth equity capital firm based in Princeton, NJ. Previous investors MissionOG, OCA Ventures, Timberline Ventures, Northwestern University, and Backstop Solutions co-founder Jeremie Bacon also participated. Joining the consortium this round is Cultivation Ventures, a venture capital firm specializing in technology and life sciences, with several partners who have worked in investment management technology.
“During the last year, Solovis has experienced 300 percent growth with top-tier endowments, foundations, and family offices adopting its platform, helping to establish the company as the emerging industry standard for multi-asset class managers,” says Tom Vander Schaaff, General Partner, who led the investment for Edison. “We are impressed by Solovis’ rapid growth, deep roster of marquee customers, and its market leadership position. The financing will allow Solovis to continue to expand its solutions and magnify its significant impact on the industry,” he added.
Solovis provides a holistic, open architecture approach to multi-asset class portfolio management. Built by industry practitioners with extensive experience in private equity, hedge funds, and traditional asset classes, the company offers a flexible, robust platform for performance, exposures, liquidity and cash flow forecasting with front-to-back office integration, eliminating multiple system solutions and error-prone spreadsheets. “When you speak with Solovis, you can immediately tell they have been in your seat and speak your language. The system was built from the bottom-up to specifically address the challenges of multi-asset class investing. That made all the difference in the world to us and has been invaluable in synthesizing disparate data efficiently,” says Brandon Pevnick of the JFMC Pooled Endowment Portfolio.
With this Series A financing, Solovis will significantly expand its team in Dallas, TX and Charlottesville, VA, as well as establish a presence in New York, NY and San Francisco, CA. “This round will deepen and expand our Dynamic Forecasting suite and strengthen our ability to address the growing demand for our Analyst Services, a big differentiator for us in the marketplace cementing Solovis’ position as a strategic partner for limited partner and asset allocators,” says Solovis co-founder and CEO Josh Smith.
