Enhanced transparency. Informed decision-making.

For over 30 years, we have been making strategic investments in technology companies, helping to bring investment transparency and powerful analytics to the private markets. Inspired innovation is core to our values — and is a driver for how we leverage technology. Our approach is threefold: 

  • Increase the transparency of information within the private markets. 
  • Use actual data, instead of anecdotes, to drive our decision making. 
  • Improve efficiency in an increasingly complex world.

Together, we believe the result is tangible improvements to our clients’ allocation budgets and risk management.
