PRESS RELEASE

SEATTLE and SAN FRANCISCO, November 19, 2019 – Quantivate, a leading SaaS governance, risk and compliance solution provider, announced today that it has received a strategic growth investment from Luminate Capital Partners, a San Francisco-based private equity firm.

Quantivate’s SaaS platform helps financial institutions mitigate enterprise risk, maintain compliance with regulatory requirements, manage organizational policies and procedures and make informed, risk-based decisions that align with business objectives. Quantivate offers a suite of eight SaaS modules which automate activities across different compliance, risk, and audit functions in a single integrated platform.

Founded in 2005, Quantivate serves a customer base of leading credit unions, banks and financial technology companies, including America’s Credit Union, Territorial Savings Bank, The Golden 1 Credit Union, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, and Bangor Savings Bank. In 2018, Quantivate was selected by Credit Union National Association (CUNA) as the exclusive compliance technology solution provider to help CUNA’s member credit unions manage compliance requirements.

Andy Vanderhoff, CEO and Founder of Quantivate, said, “We founded Quantivate to help financial institutions automate risk management and compliance functions which historically have been siloed and manual. Our software equips organizations with a single integrated platform to efficiently and effectively manage these complex requirements. We believe that our partnership with Luminate will allow us to expand upon our foundation, accelerate product innovation, scale our team, and ultimately drive further value to our customers.”

“We are excited to partner with the Quantivate team to support their continued growth and success,” said Hollie Haynes, Founder and Managing Partner at Luminate. Dave Ulrich, Principal at Luminate, added, “Compliance and risk management requirements have become increasingly complex and burdensome for financial institutions in recent years.
