AccessFintech raises $60m in Series C funding
New York-based AccessFintech, which enables data and workflow collaboration across the financial industry, has raised $60 million in a Series C funding round led by WestCap.
Other investors in the round include BNY Mellon and Bank of America, along with existing investors Dawn Capital, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and Citi Group.
Kevin Marcus, partner at WestCap, and Caroline Butler, global head of custody at BNY Mellon, will also join the firm’s board of directors.
AccessFintech says the new money will be used to fuel its growth and planned expansion into new markets. The company last raised $20 million in a Series B round in 2020 and the latest investment brings its total capital secured to date to $97 million.
Through its data collaboration network, Synergy, AccessFintech claims to improve data sharing, workflow collaboration, resolution and decision-making, providing more visibility on transaction data, access to benchmarking insights and reduced costs and fees.
The cloud-based Synergy network currently has over 100 participants, including global banks, broker-dealers, custodians and asset managers.
Butler says democratising data across market participants “reduces operational friction and associated costs and improves settlement”.
