An Update from Our CEO Karim Ali

We hope this message finds you well. We are thrilled to bring you the latest updates from daappa, where we continually strive to enhance our products and services better to serve the needs of the private asset market.

We’re proud to introduce the latest advancements in our Studio+ solution, which harmoniously integrates with daappa’s Core accounting and administration platform and will soon be available to enhance and supplement your current investment and accounting system without being tied to Core. After launching the Analytics, Compliance, and Look Through modules, Studio+ now consolidates our Business Intelligence capabilities into a user-friendly system supported by our state-of-the-art DataHub technology.

We continue to release market-leading features such as our interactive capital account statement dashboard to daappa Studio+ that is designed to simplify the management and oversight of intricate private asset data sets and fund structures, equipping you with powerful tools to effortlessly handle your assets and funds, monitor performance, and generate tailored reports.

We are also delighted to announce that the NAV workflow Automation and Equalisation features have been completed and are now available in the latest version of our Core platform.

Last month, our diligent sales and professional services team played a crucial role in securing an important retender process. Additionally, they have been working on several upgrade projects with some of our longstanding clients. Their dedication to maintaining client relationships and providing quality service showcases their valuable contribution to our company.

The integration efforts between the BRD group of companies have continued, resulting in seamless connectivity between daappa and the fund reporting and document nadi solution. We have a client now live on the cross-platform solution and will be announcing more success stories in the coming months.

Your success is our passion, and we are committed to keeping you informed and supporting your journey in the private asset market. We look forward to the opportunity to grow together.
