Accelex and Filament Announce Partnership

Accelex and Filament Announce Partnership to Automate Data Management for the Alternative Investment Industry.

LONDON – DECEMBER 2022 – Accelex, a SaaS platform specializing in alternative investment data management, today announced a partnership with Filament, provider of the market data integration and interrogation platform Syfter. The partnership will allow private markets firms to integrate data from GP fund reporting into their information management processes to streamline market intelligence and deal origination activities.

Filament clients will now be able to use Accelex to modernize the extraction of data from unstructured sources (such as PDFs) required to feed their platform for deal sourcing and ongoing investment monitoring. The automation of data extraction will cut the time, effort, and resources required to manage an otherwise manual, time-consuming task.

Additionally, Accelex clients will be able to use Syfter to expedite the research needed to identify targets as well as manage their investment universe and market maps, removing reliance on Excel files and disparate data sources. “Accelex and Syfter are both best-in-class platforms that allow private market investors to identify and analyze new opportunities and monitor existing portfolios more efficiently”, explains Michael Aldridge, President at Accelex. “We are excited about this partnership and look forward to providing clients with a combined solution that will help them minimize the time spent on manual processes and allow them to dedicate their time to optimizing the investment process”.

Phil Westcott, Chief Executive Officer at Filament said, “There is a significant need in private capital firms to build proprietary data infrastructure, automate operations and leverage AI for market analysis. Our partnership with Accelex will enable investors to streamline the extraction of data from unstructured sources, while leveraging Syfter to build and enrich their own database covering investment targets, portfolio companies, advisors and competitors. This operationalizes knowledge management within the firm, originating deals and tracking market signals, all in a fraction of the time that they would otherwise spend on those tasks. Our relationship with Accelex is a natural extension of our capabilities in the alternatives space and we’re excited to bring this end-to-end value to our clients”.
