AQ Metrics raises $3.25M from international investors to expand US presence
We are proud to have led the round — welcome AQ Metrics to the Frontline family!
Investment managers are finding themselves in an era of great change, making risk management and compliance exceptionally complicated. AQ Metrics CEO Geraldine Gibson foresaw this industry shift—a very clear gap existed for a technologically advanced, cloud-based platform to simplify regulatory complexity in real time.
In 2012, Geraldine founded AQ Metrics to offer managers a simple, innovative, and effective way to address regulatory risk and compliance. They deliver an ultra-fast and high-quality cloud-based platform to save clients time and money.
For the past 3 years, the AQ Metrics team of 12 has been doggedly building the platform. We continue to be impressed by their execution — the AQ Metrics software has been used by both EU and non-EU investment firms to submit regulatory filings to regulators in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the UK, Germany, and Ireland.
With this fast-growing client demand, the team is now capitalising on the momentum with a $3.25M funding: AQ Metrics will be hiring 30 roles in Ireland within the next 12 months and establishing a New York office in the next six months.
We are incredibly excited to back such an ambitious founder — Geraldine has had her eye set on international markets from the start. Her dedicated team and their progress is testament to the innovative RegTech product that AQ Metrics has built.
Frontline is proud to have led the $3.25M round, alongside East-Coast based Bluff Point Associates and Enterprise Ireland.
Onwards and upwards!
