Our story

Our story

Fund Recs was founded in 2013 when the company founders were approached by a large bank to develop a new reconciliation platform for its Fund Administration unit. With over 25 years operational and technology experience between them the team are building a platform to transform how data is managed, processed and leveraged by the Funds Industry.

Fund Recs recently launched VELOCITY platform for Fund Administrators empowers Administrators to process valuations faster and with increased oversight. In 2019 Fund Recs launched FUSION to give users back control of their data with an easy to use no-code solution.

Taking the latest technology and approaches from the best loved consumer software applications, the Fund Recs team are combining consumer user experience and interfaces with enterprise accuracy, security and availability.

The team at Fund Recs believes that the software we use in day-to-day business activities should be as well designed and easy to use as the consumer applications we enjoy every day in our personal life.

By combining ease of use with powerful processing, flexible data import and key Industry knowledge we have set out on our mission towards developing the most efficient, powerful and cost effective reconciliation and data transformation software available.
