Investment Metrics is a leading global provider of mission-critical reporting and analytical research solutions that empower institutional investment allocators, asset owners and asset managers to achieve better financial outcomes with clear investment insights. After many years of continuous innovation and accretive organic and inorganic growth, the company is now recognized as the leading reporting and analytics platform in its segment and has become foundational to the workflows of the largest and most demanding clients in the institutional investment sector.
Since investing in Investment Metrics in 2017, Resurgens worked alongside management to close two subsequent acquisitions, which enabled the company to expand its geographic reach, diversify its customer base and addressable market, significantly expand its product portfolio and add world-class talent with deep domain expertise and strong industry relationships. Since Resurgens’ investment in 2017, employee count rose over five-fold, and revenue nearly quadrupled.
“The product, customer and global market expansion we’ve experienced during our partnership with Resurgens have cemented Investment Metrics’ leading position in the global investment technology ecosystem,” said Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Sanjoy Chatterjee of Investment Metrics. “Resurgens orchestrated and helped integrate two strategic acquisitions, which changed the trajectory of our company. They demonstrated integrity, mutual respect and transparency every step of the way.”
“As we look to the future with Confluence, we are excited to continuously improve upon our platform, which serves as a foundational tool for some of the largest institutional investors in the world,” continued Brent Burns, CEO of Investment Metrics. “We are grateful for Resurgens’ support over the past four years.”
Investment Metrics was the initial investment in Resurgens’ first fund, which has made seven platform investments and seven add-on acquisitions.
“Resurgens is very proud of the company we helped to build in partnership with the Investment Metrics team,” said Resurgens Managing Directors Fred Sturgis and Adi Filipovic. “The company has become a leading global player in the institutional investment technology segment, and we are excited for its next phase of growth as part of Confluence.”
