We find, fund and support the best entrepreneurs solving real problems for financial institutions.

Building an enterprise software company and selling solutions into financial institutions is hard.

Large financial firms know they need to adopt new technology solutions to remain competitive and compliant, but they struggle to filter and identify the best companies that are fit for purpose.

Bridging this gap requires more than just patient capital to help with this challenge.

It needs the support of a trusted partner who can help make the right introductions to the right people at the right time.

At Illuminate, our deep networks and partnerships with key industry participants across banks, infrastructure providers, asset & wealth managers, exchanges and established vendors allow us to gain real insight into what the industry needs and help portfolio companies achieve their full potential.

We understand the challenges founders face. We have been the entrepreneur, the vendor, the industry executive and the end consumer.

We are an independent sector specialist investor.
