About FundApps
FundApps is a bootstrapped SaaS scaleup that helps investment managers monitor and comply with worldwide regulations. We were one of the world's first "RegTechs" and we're shaking up an entire industry. Our clients love what we do and this has led to phenomenal consistent revenue growth.
Our first area of focus was to help managers with Shareholding Disclosure, a complex regulatory problem without a fit-for-purpose solution in the market. Since that time, our service has become the undisputed market leader with over 130 clients. We have also added new ground-breaking services - Sensitive Industries and Position Limits - and in 2023, introduced Filing Manager, a one click filing service to take our solution to the next level .

Every day, our service monitors a collective US$19 trillion in assets under management on behalf of clients ranging from small US Hedge Funds to French Investment Banks to the largest Sovereign Wealth Fund in the world.

We’re a growing team of 130 FundAppers and over 35 nationalities at last count. We have offices in London, New York and Singapore and remote employees spread across the globe. In 2018, we became a Certified B Corporation and in 2019 were recognised as a B Corp 'Best for the World - Workers' Honoree - highlighting our commitment to doing good by our people. We are working towards an ambitious target of being carbon neutral by 2027.
