Clients include Amitra Capital, Veld Capital, Quilam Capital, RCapital and Blazehill alongside AnaCap and the portfolio firms in which it currently invests.

Edward Green, CEO at Equipped, commented: “Equipped is a company that is “built by investment professionals for investment professionals.” Its strong growth over the last two year is a culmination of years of hard work in developing and perfecting a powerful software platform to automate and transform alternative investment workflows. Today, we have an industry-leading product in Minerva, a world-class engineering and support team in multiple geographies and a global market waiting to be tapped into.
