Datamaran, the ESG risk management software platform, has now delivered 3.5x return on investment in under three years. 

This follows the completion of a £11.7 million Series B funding round led by US industrial technology conglomerate Fortive, with participation from major electricity provider American Electric Power.

The round gave Wealth Club investors the option to exit or stay invested. Given the expected continued growth and value creation, some Wealth Club investors have decided to stay in. Please note, exit within three years means investors lose the benefit of EIS tax reliefs.

Past performance is not a guide to the future. EIS investments are high-risk and illiquid – you could lose all the capital you invest.

Datamaran claims to provide the world’s only data-driven automated solution to help large institutions monitor and analyse emerging ESG risks and opportunities in real time.

Its patented software is now used by over 120 of the world’s leading brands and blue-chip corporations. Amazon, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, Barclays, Santander and Nike were among Datamaran’s first clients.

European regulator EFRAG recognises the platform as best practice for material risk identification and monitoring.

Wealth Club investors participated in the Series A round in 2019 led by West Hill Capital. The company significantly grew its sales since then, adding substantial shareholder value, and is now outperforming its growth plan.

In our view, Datamaran’s delivery of a 3.5x return in under three years is impressive at any time, but particularly in the current uncertain climate.
