Grandview Analytics Announces 2023 Milestones and 10-Year Anniversary

Grandview celebrates continued growth fueled by new and expanding client relationships, strategic investments, and enhancements to our Rivvit™ software.

CHICAGO [January 10, 2024] – Chicago-based Grandview Analytics, a leading technology consulting and data management software company for financial institutions, is pleased to announce strong momentum heading into 2024. Though it was a challenging year for the financial services industry, Grandview was able to grow its client base by 30% and made strategic investments in staffing and technology infrastructure to support continued growth in its consulting and managed data service businesses. Founded in 2014, the company is thrilled to celebrate these successes in conjunction with its 10-year anniversary.  

“We are proud to have worked with several new clients in 2023 across our consulting and software businesses,” said Matt Biver, co-founder and CEO. “With many of these engagements poised for growth and expansion in the next year and a strong sales pipeline, we invested heavily in our business in 2023 to ensure we continue to meet our high standards for quality delivery and technology innovation. This included investing in our RivvitTM platform, reinforcing our client delivery organization, and growing our strategic alliances foundation.”

Highlights of Grandview’s organizational achievements in 2023 include:

  • Consulting client growth and diversification: Grandview’s growth is driven by financial services firms and asset managers investing in technology to increase operational efficiency, reduce costs through workflow optimization and automation, and support new products and revenue streams. In 2023, its already impressive client roster grew by 30%, adding several well-known names in the insurance, wealth management, institutional, and public sector investment management space.
 
  • Rivvit and managed data service growth: As an emerging leader in investment data management technology, Grandview was proud to win new business for its outsourced managed data service and Rivvit data management and reporting platform in 2023.
    • With over 175 billion USD assets on the platform, Rivvit processed nearly 40,000 data feeds in 2023 and an average of 1000 automated daily tasks on behalf of clients.
    • With a focus on continued organic growth in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), Grandview added senior engineering talent to focus on front- and back-end Rivvit development as well as R&D initiatives in artificial intelligence and machine learning. These investments accelerate development of new Rivvit features and capabilities and improve user experience.
    • Within Rivvit, Grandview launched Workflow Manager which is a scheduling and event tracking module giving users transparency into the status of business-critical tasks performed within Rivvit. This capability offers status dashboards for tasks such as data ingestion, data distribution, report publication, and other automated processes tailored to clients. By combining Workflow Manager with the existing Data Quality Management (Rivvit-DQM) module, users have increased confidence and transparency into the accuracy, availability, and timeliness of their data.
 
  • Traction in insurance space: In competition with some of the largest global fintech companies, Rivvit continues to gain strong traction with insurance firms seeking to launch or enhance their asset management capabilities.
    • Grandview helped an insurance company launch a new asset management business. Leveraging its full suite of consulting and data services, the Grandview team implemented BlackRock Aladdin and deployed Rivvit to provide the data management hub that streamlines data between Clearwater Analytics, Aladdin, and client internal systems. By providing process controls for data quality management, compliance guideline measurement, and transparent auditing capabilities, Grandview and Rivvit helped the client meet the regulatory requirements to offer a new strategy for Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs), resulting in 20% growth in AUM in the past nine months.
    • Grandview won an engagement with an insurance company that chose Rivvit as its strategic data management and reporting solution. Rivvit integrated data from multiple subsidiary entities, external managers, accounting providers, and CRM systems, and was deployed to production in only 71 days. The resulting infrastructure allows the client to access daily consolidated dashboards and reports that are automated and tailored to its needs and the needs of its investors.
  • Awards and Recognition:  Grandview was recognized by prestigious industry award programs for revenue growth, client solutions, and its Rivvit data management and reporting software:
    • Debuted on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies
    • Named a finalist in the 2023 SaaS Awards program in the category of “Best SaaS Product for Financial Services”
    • Shortlisted by the 2023 US FinTech Awards in the “Data Initiative of the Year” category
    • Shortlisted in the FTF News Technology Innovation Awards in categories of “Best Professional Services Provider” and “Best Data Management Solution”
  • Industry Thought Leadership and Collaboration: Grandview’s leaders invested time in thought leadership activities to build awareness of the technology and data challenges faced by asset management businesses:
    • Phil Dauer, Senior Director, joined an Insurance AUM podcast to discuss the implications of and solutions for inaccurate, disparate, and lagging data for insurance companies.
    • Matt Biver, CEO, participated in CDO & Data Leaders’ Summit, hosted by CDO Magazine and EDM Council, to moderate a panel discussion on “Adding Value When Putting Data Technologies Together.”

  • Strategic talent and organizational investments: With continued growth came the need for additional leadership roles to support Grandview’s mission of providing clients with innovative data management and reporting solutions. New hires and strategic internal promotions in 2023 included:
    • Tony Kauzlarich, Senior Director: Kauzlarich was appointed to a newly formed position as Head of Client Delivery. Tony’s mandate is to ensure each client project is a success and delivered with the level of quality for which Grandview has become known in the industry.
