CAMS Buys Majority Stake in FinTech Startup Fintuple

India: Leading financial infrastructure for mutual funds, Computer Age Management Services Limited (CAMS) has acquired majority stakes in a digital-focused FinTech startup, Fintuple Technologies Private Limited, for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition by CAMS is intended towards strengthening alternative investment funds (AIF) and portfolio mergers (PF) with the addition of Fintuple’s portfolio of offerings. The partnership can help address the challenges in an investor’s journey starting from the onboarding process arising from the siloed systems to lack of exchange of data and redundancy in account opening across financial institutions. Besides, the investment would strengthen CAMS’ position as the leading provider of technology solutions in the market, especially for e-KYC and Digital Onboarding, and drive the company’s vision to provide technologically superior products in the BFSI space.

Fintuple Technologies is a new-age startup company founded in 2018 that provides niche technology solutions in the areas of digital client onboarding, fund data, fact sheets, analysis, and other digital support frameworks in AIF and PMS. Fintuple has included marquee AIF brands and banks to its client roster within a short span. The startup plans to extend its support for connecting tech-savvy customers with digitally enabled manufacturers and providers through an application programming interface (APIs). CAMS’ AIF platform currently serves more than 120 clients across all domains such as investor servicing, fund accounting, and digital and value-added services.

Addressing the acquisition, CAMS' Managing Director commented, “We expect the AIF and PMS markets to grow at a CAGR of more than 20% over the next decade, and hence found investing into Fintuple as a great opportunity that will assist CAMS and Fintuple in building overall market reach and driving innovation. The Fintuple solution suite will enhance our capability to meet the bespoke requirements of our clients with ease and speed. The acquisition will further drive CAMS’ vision of providing technologically superior products in the BFSI space, specifically to the rapidly growing AIF and PMS segment.”

Commenting on the rising number of consolidations in the BFSI space, TechSci Research Director, Mr. Karan Chechi, said, “FinTech APIs continue to reshape the future of financial services, providing people the convenience to manage their finances from home. Besides, Gen Z and successors have high expectations for managing their online experiences, and such collaborations between FinTechs can help the BFSI sector grow. The AIF and PMS markets are expected to register a CAGR of more than 20% by 2030; thus, institutions are making investments to enhance ease and speed for clients in financial operations.”
