Published

Agora, a provider of real estate investment management solutions, has acquired Clearshift’s real estate division to “reinvent cross-border payments in investment management.”

The division has utilized Clearshift’s international payments infrastructure to facilitate mass payouts and capital investments between foreign investors, asset managers, real estate property managers, and fund administrators.

While the financial details of the acquisition remain undisclosed, Agora will now serve as the division’s primary client-facing interface, offering “user-friendly investment management tools.” Clearshift will retain responsibility for payment execution and compliance functions.

For existing Clearshift clients, this integration into the Agora platform promises “enhanced capabilities.” Agora’s clients, not currently subscribed to Clearshift, will gain “a transparent solution to foreign exchange activity” that enables “seamless distributions and contributions in any currency worldwide.”

Ari Dobner, CEO of Clearshift, noted, “After years of refining our fund manager payment solution, it became clear to us that our clients would truly benefit from a full investor management solution with seamless payment integration.”

Bar Mor, co-founder and CEO of Agora, added that the acquisition will enhance their platform with “streamlined and cost-effective international payments,” leveraging the “substantial customer overlap between Agora and Clearshift.”

This acquisition follows the recent closure of Agora’s $34 million Series B funding round, backed by Qumra Capital, Insight Partners, and UK-based investment firm Aleph.

InScope secures $4.3m to revolutionise financial reporting and auditing

Published

on

 

InScope, a newly launched FinTech company, has successfully raised $4.3 million to expand its innovative financial reporting and auditing platform.

According to PYMNTS, the funding round included significant contributions from prominent investors such as Lightspeed and Better Tomorrow Ventures.

InScope is focused on transforming the traditional processes of financial reporting and auditing for private companies. The company leverages advanced technologies, including generative AI and large language models, to automate and streamline the compilation of financial statements—tasks that have historically been prone to errors and required extensive manual effort.

The new capital will be used to enhance InScope’s platform capabilities. The company aims to shift accountants’ focus from laborious manual tasks to more strategic initiatives, thereby empowering finance professionals with tools to complete reporting and auditing tasks quickly and efficiently.

InScope’s system compiles data from a company’s core systems, such as ERP, along with publicly available information, and transforms these inputs into GAAP-compliant financial and audit documents.

InScope CEO and co-founder Mary Antony stated, “Our technology dramatically reduces the time and effort required for financial reporting and auditing, eliminating the need for outdated manual processes.” Her co-founder and COO, Kelsey Gootnick, also emphasized the transformative potential of InScope, which they conceived out of their own frustrations with existing financial processes.

The company has already begun collaborating with a select group of companies to refine and enhance their financial reporting capabilities. JC Bahr-de Stefano, a venture capital investor at Better Tomorrow Ventures, commented on this partnership: “InScope is already working with a handful of companies to help streamline their financial reporting needs and enable accountants to complete their reporting tasks in minutes instead of months.”
