As inflows to alternative investments continue to grow, Canoe is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the trend. We see significant potential in Canoe and are excited to invest in their future. We are glad to support their mission to streamline alternative investment data globally.”

Since the completion of Canoe’s Series B funding round in February 2023 the firm has achieved 100% year-over-year growth in both clients and revenue.

Jason Eiswerth, CEO of Canoe Intelligence, says: “The success of this funding round is a testament to our leading market position, as well as our future potential. With the additional capital, we will continue to advance the alts industry by building innovative AI and machine learning technology, delivering comprehensive back-to-front office solutions, maintaining our commitment to data integrity and, most importantly, creating value for our clients.”
