Our involvement in the alternative investment sector over the last decade has allowed us to develop a detailed understanding of the end to end investment management process. For the most part, the sector has been slow to embrace digital innovation and transformation.
Many alternative investment managers currently use a combination of manual processes, spreadsheets and standalone software to manage investments from deal origination to portfolio monitoring. Whilst processes are robust, they are time consuming and inefficient; valuable time is spent on back office processes that don’t make best use of talent and time.
I’m therefore delighted to introduce Quva, a software-as-a service solution for alternative investment managers created, incubated and launched by G-Labs, the venture builder division of Growth Capital Ventures.
Quva has one clear focus – to transform the way Alternative Investment Managers originate, transact and monitor their investment portfolio.
With Quva, Alternative Investment Managers – including Angel Networks, Venture Capital Fund Managers and Private Equity Fund Managers – are provided with a highly customisable and highly configurable end-to-end solution. The technology is scaled, adjusted and defined by individual requirements.
It is clear alternative investment drives the UK economy by powering high growth businesses, and the managers behind such investment need to be provided with the opportunity to originate better quality deals, provide capital faster and make better decisions to support portfolio companies. They need to create value in the most effective way – what they don’t need is inefficient systems that hinder value creation.
Developed by investment professionals for investment professionals, Quva combines a clear understanding of the investment origination, transaction and monitoring process with our development team’s vast experience of creating bespoke software solutions. The result is a business-critical solution that enables an unparalleled and transparent view of the entire investment process from deal origination to realisation and exit.
Moving into the launch phase, Quva is to become a GCV business division in its own right, with plans afoot to expand the team over the coming months with a number of key hires. Over the next three years, Quva aims to build on the current team and create over 30 full time roles for software developers, UX/UI designers, sales, marketing and customer success roles.
Joining the expanding GCV portfolio of disruptive high growth companies – who together have created over 500 jobs and have a market capitalisation of over £500 million – Quva is set to transform the end-to-end Alternative Investment Management process and help Investment Managers support economic growth and drive portfolio value creation.
