Financial data provider Quovo landed some serious cash last week in a Series B funding round. The New York-based company received $10 million from Napier Park Global Capital and F-Prime Capital Partners, who led the round. They were joined by existing investors, FinTech Collective and Long Light Capital. The company now boasts $15.2 million in total funding.
Lowell Putnam, CEO and co-founder of Quovo said that the capital will enable the company further its “mission to help firms build strong, data-driven client relationships, ” and that it will “enable [it] to build upon [its] success and help anyone trying to innovate or disrupt within financial services.”
Quovo will use the investment to “accelerate the growth of its suite of data analytics offerings,” which include Quovo Connect, a module that enables companies to pull transaction data from a user’s financial accounts. Quovo also offers a Bank Authentication API, which the company’s CTO & Co-Founder, Michael Del Monte, along with Stephen Sikes, Head of Strategy for SoFi Wealth, showcased at FinDEVr New York. SoFi, along with Finovate alums Wealthfront and Betterment leverage Quovo’s Authentication API to offer end users a smooth way to authenticate their financial accounts securely.
