Rapid customer and product growth extends Juniper Square leadership in partnership enablement for the private funds industry
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Juniper Square, the leader in partnership enablement for the private funds industry, announced that more than 1,700 sponsors and 300,000 investors have adopted its platform. Designed to meet the needs of GPs and LPs investing in private markets, Juniper Square provides a universal system for investment partners to connect and communicate seamlessly across every stage of a partnership. Robust growth in private markets coupled with increasing demands for digital transformation has resulted in GPs and LPs adopting Juniper Square across more than 24,000 private funds.
On the growth, Juniper Square chief marketing officer Matt Lawson said, “Like any relationship, investment partnerships rely on mutual trust and empowerment built over the course of many interactions, but GPs and LPs often fall short of fully optimizing their exchanges because they lack systems for shared visibility and workflow. Juniper Square is uniquely positioned to help GPs optimize and build thriving partnerships, as evidenced by the scale of our customer base, and the success those customers have seen over the past year.”
Many of the world’s largest and most sophisticated investment managers, including Tishman Speyer, Greystar, and Bell Partners reported material improvements in partnership outcomes in the past year as a result of Juniper Square, including greater fundraising productivity, improved back-office efficiency, and increased investor satisfaction.
“It was important to us that our investors have a holistic view of their investments on one platform,” said Rachael Brittingham, Managing Director, and leader of the global client relations group. “Juniper Square provides all the capabilities we want for our investors; across every single investment they have with Greystar.”
Robust growth in customer adoption has been accompanied by robust growth in the company’s fund administration solutions. Juniper Square Administration customer and employee growth exceeded 300% year to date. Juniper Square Administration unites expert practitioners with innovative workflows to deliver a truly modern administration experience while improving quality, transparency, and cost.
Austin Carlson, Managing Director and Head of Sales and Investor Relations at Parkview, a Juniper Square Administration customer, agreed, “We learned so much about our business operations through the process of switching administrators. We discovered several things that we should be doing, and that's where Juniper Square’s expertise came into play. They’re experts in the administration space, which is why we picked them to help us grow our business. They understand our needs. Our business is their business, and we’re building it together.”
Juniper Square’s growth is also attributable to its leadership in customer success and security. The retention rate for the company’s portal solution is greater than 99% and Juniper Square is the only vendor of its kind to maintain both SOC-1 and SOC-2 compliance for management of customer data. In addition, customers rate Juniper Square a 4.9 out of 5 stars on both Capterra and G2Crowd, the two leading vendor review websites.
“The partnership enablement that Juniper Square offers is characterized by solutions that are shared, scalable, seamlessly connected to the business, and supported by expert service and robust security,” Lawson said. “Having these benefits allows GPs to focus on accelerating fundraising, keeping their investors happy and increasing operational efficiencies.”
