NEW YORK & LONDON, March 25, 2024-- FundGuard, the industry’s first fully cloud-native, AI-powered, multi-asset class investment accounting platform for asset managers, asset owners, custodian banks and fund administrators today announced the successful closure of its Series C funding round, amounting to $100 million. This latest round of investment - led by Key1 Capital and new investors including Euclidean Capital and funds managed by Hamilton Lane (Nasdaq: HLNE) - marks another significant milestone on FundGuard’s path towards becoming the industry’s new era investment accounting utility.

The round also saw strong participation from existing strategic investors, plus the company’s earliest financial investors: Blumberg Capital and Team8.

Founded in 2018, FundGuard is transforming investment operations by leveraging cloud-native technology and AI capabilities to modernize and streamline investment accounting operations and workflows. Key to the company’s success has been the combined expertise of its leadership, including experienced funds industry executives and enterprise cloud technology and data science innovators. Backed by some of the world’s leading financial institutions and now with a total investment of over $150 million to date, this round follows two years of evolution and expansion, including new client acquisition, customer onboarding, significant hiring of top talent across Customer Success, R&D, Product Management and Sales, and the opening of the company’s Boston, London and Toronto offices.

“FundGuard is shaping the future of investment and fund accounting,” said Lior Yogev, CEO and Co-Founder, FundGuard. “This latest significant investment round reflects the ongoing support of the industry, the confidence our investors have in the value our products bring to the market, and their trust in our leadership and strategic roadmap.”
