Who are we?

Private equity investors have more than $6.5 trillion under management, which is being invested in the most innovative sectors and companies in the world. However, the majority of these investors still rely on tools such as Excel spreadsheets to manage their portfolios. Edda has been developed to provide the market with fit for purpose technology bringing efficiency, transparency and safety to the industry, from the earliest days of deal selecting through to portfolio management and exits.

Most tools in the market are built for big private equity companies and often use legacy technology. At Edda, we see that these tools need to adapt to a rapidly changing market. When you have different teams using different softwares working in conjunction, time is wasted through inefficiencies as the various technologies aren't compatible. This means there is an increased risk of losing data, there is a delay for retrieving information, communication becomes complicated and you lose sight of the bigger picture. 

Edda removes inefficiencies within companies by allowing everyone to work on the same platform together. Edda is the first tool to unite all the aspects of investment, including dealflow, portfolio, LPs and network management into one product and automatically offers users up-to-date news and data, solving the problems that investors face daily.
