“The global pandemic accelerated the adoption of digital platforms across industries, including the PE&VC industry,” said Robert King, CEO, Acuity. “We are seeing an uptick in demand from our clients and the industry for digital platforms that can solve fund operations and investor reporting constraints amid a new, hybrid work model. FolioSure uniquely addresses these challenges to deliver higher productivity and better efficiency for PE&VC teams at a time when efficiency is crucial.”
