A specialist in digital transformation and new industrial models, Aster has funded 60 companies since 2000.

"iLEVEL will help us continue to scale by enabling us to automate our processes and reporting. By gaining operational efficiencies, we can continue to deliver quality information to our sponsors and portfolio companies while concentrating on value adding analysis."

"We are proud to welcome Aster to iLEVEL’s growing European client base," says Melissa Ferraz, managing director and head of client development for Private Capital Markets at IHS Markit. "For firms like Aster that specialise in high-growth markets such as energy and mobility, the ability to streamline operations while meeting the demand for flexible and transparent reporting is critical, and we look forward to supporting the firm's continued growth and success."
