ByAllAccounts Receives $5 Million to Fuel New Growth
ByAllAccounts Sees Growing Demand for Professional-Grade Account Data, From Registered Investment Advisors Automating Back Offices to Large Institutional Users
BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) - ByAllAccounts, Inc., the financial advisors' choice for account aggregation, today announced that it has received $5 million in Series B funding, led by Castile Ventures, to expand in the advisory market and increase its presence in the institutional market. Skip Besthoff, a general partner at Castile Ventures, will join the ByAllAccounts board of directors. Previous investor Commonwealth Capital Ventures also participated in this round.
ByAllAccounts will use the funding to build on its momentum among registered investment advisors and fuel growth with asset managers, wealth management firms, broker dealers and compliance monitoring firms. ByAllAccounts is the only company dedicated to financial account aggregation for professional use. Its patented technology retrieves financial information from any custodian to deliver the most reliable, accurate, reconciliation-ready financial account data available. ByAllAccounts' data services are currently integrated with more than three dozen wealth management platforms -- portfolio management systems, CRM, reconciliation, personal trading surveillance, trust accounting and other platforms.
"We've witnessed growth in advisor demand for intelligently automating the exchange of financial account data to increase assets under advisement," said James Carney, president and CEO of ByAllAccounts. "Account aggregation technology has become an indispensible part of the typical advisory firm's workflow. This funding will support our effort to continue our rapid expansion into thousands of firms that can benefit from rapidly, cost-effectively and efficiently putting comprehensive account information on professionals' desktops."
ByAllAccounts expanded its customer base more than 40 percent in 2009. It services more than 600 advisory firms and thousands of advisors through its subscription delivery model. With services focused purely on advisors' need for data that is more consistent and complete than what other services can provide, the company has become the standard for financial account data aggregation.
"Today, more and more investment management professionals recognize the benefits that account aggregation offers, both for themselves and for their clients," stated Besthoff, general partner, Castile Ventures. "ByAllAccounts has established itself as a clear leader in the field, and the team has demonstrated the experience and passion to keep the company at the forefront of this rapidly growing market."
"We are delighted with the tremendous progress the ByAllAccounts team has made since our initial investment," said Justin Perreault, general partner at Commonwealth Capital Ventures. "We look forward to working with ByAllAccounts as they continue to capitalize on the leadership position they have established in the rapidly-growing data aggregation market."
