Commenting on Motive Partners’ investment in LPA this week, Peter Schurau, former Chief Executive Officer of Capco Europe and current Industry Partner at Motive Partners: “The Motive team and I are very enthusiastic about the unique potential this partnership represents – it is not every day that you find such a well-matched culture and complimentary capabilities between an existing and highly talented management team and the investment firm. The opportunity to develop and deepen the software-focused value proposition for existing clients and to extend our reach into adjacent sectors is extremely exciting. It is our collective objective to build and evolve LPA in to a company of global scale that is recognized as a leading RegTech brand. I look forward to working very closely with Roland and Stefan to make it a reality.”

Minho Roth, CEO, Avaloq Ventures, commenting on the recent announcement: “This is one of the most exciting developments in the global FinTech sector, and I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to lead and grow Avaloq Ventures at this pivotal moment in the evolution of the global financial services and technology sectors. We will look to identify, fund and support the most innovative start-ups and companies with the greatest growth potential. They will be able to leverage their access to Avaloq’s client community of more than 150 banks and wealth managers worldwide.”
