Linedata (LIN:FP), the global solutions provider to the investment management and credit industries, today signed an agreement to acquire Gravitas Technology Services (Gravitas), a leading provider of middle office and technology services to the asset management industry. Gravitas is based mainly in New York (USA) and Mumbai (India).

Favourable market conditions

Linedata – an acknowledged leader in providing technology solutions for asset managers – continues to broaden its range of products and services through targeted, strategic acquisitions to span the entire value chain of institutional and alternative managers, and fund administrators.

Increasingly asset management companies, particularly alternative managers, are seeking to outsource their middle- and back-office operations to partners who are able to leverage comprehensive and scalable technology solutions. Gravitas has demonstrated this core expertise over 20 years and has unique experience in providing these functions to their clients.

Gravitas: outstanding services and technologies

Gravitas provides its innovative services using a technology platform that integrates proprietary and third-party tools. Through outsourcing, its customers access top-tier services based on a variable, shared cost model.

With over 80 staff in the United States and 180 in India, Gravitas is one of the leading players in the market. The company supports over 80 asset managers of all sizes in North America.

In 2016, the company achieved revenues* of $26.5 M.

Strategic, short-term synergies

By combining its software platforms with Gravitas’ outsourced services, Linedata will offer high-value services tailored to its customers’ requirements and business models. Gravitas will leverage Linedata’s global presence to distribute its services worldwide.

Linedata founder and CEO Anvaraly Jiva stated that “We are delighted to welcome Gravitas’ clients and employees into Linedata. Gravitas’ award-winning outsourcing services, combined with our technology platform, will enable us to accelerate our ambitious and innovative Linedata 2018 growth strategy.”
