A Putnam Scion Raises $1.4MM for his Big Data Firm

Reported by Tommy Fernandez

The scion of an established old school asset firm is among those pushing the boundaries of Big Data in finance.

Lowell Putnam, great grandson of the founder of Putnam Investments is the chief executive of Quovo, a burgeoning data analytics firm that helps Wall Street firms sync their databases, track performance, benchmarks and strategies as well as maintain security of their data, among other things.

Earlier this month, Quovo closed $1.4 million in a Series A round of funding. Long Light Capital was the lead investor for this round.

“Quovo’s platform capabilities, once reserved only for high paying, large institutions and wealth managers, will soon be launched as an end-to-end, cloud-based solution available to a variety of professional investors and individuals,” stated Putnam. “This new funding round facilitates development of our platform, as well as advances the overall growth of the company.”

According to Kristin Karaoglu of VatorNews, Putnam said that Quovo is "targeting the smaller end of the institutional market, endowments, sophisticated retail investors."

Karaoglu writes that the platform is "still in public beta, but is on target to be available to accredited investors in early 2014."
