Background

CubeLogic is a market leading enterprise SaaS business focused on risk management solutions for the energy, commodities and financial markets. The products deliver business intelligence enabled solutions for monitoring and managing exposures arising from credit risk, market risk and regulatory compliance.

There are over 100 people employed across offices in London, Swansea, Houston, Berlin and Bangalore and the business is expanding rapidly through new client wins and cross-selling of its modular platform solutions and professional services.

We partnered with founders Lee Campbell, David Priestley and their team through a minority investment in June 2020.

Our investment partnership

CubeLogic has leveraged its leading technical software product capability and risk management expertise to demonstrate an impressive track record of international growth since its formation in 2009. At the same time a positive, growth focused people culture has been developed throughout the international team.

Holding a leading market position in credit risk management software for energy and commodities trading organisations and an increasing reputation for market risk and regulatory compliance products, there is now a growing client base and presence in the financial services market. 

Underlying market drivers of digital transformation, increasing compliance complexity and demand for live data driven decision making provide a positive backdrop for the next phase of growth.
