Capshare forms partnership with Standish Management

Capshare, an equity management platform, has closed an investment from Standish Management, a provider of private equity fund administration services in the US.

The investment formalises a strategic partnership with Standish.
“Standish is one of the most respected names in the investment fund business and we are thrilled to partner with them. With their deep and diverse roster of over 600 funds managed, they are a perfect fit for us as we continue to build momentum and scale the investor side of our business,” says Capshare CEO Jeron Paul.
Founded in 2014, Capshare gives entrepreneurs and investors the tools to manage equity simply, efficiently and cost-effectively with more than 5,000 private companies that actively use the Capshare platform. In addition to this, private investment funds rely on Capshare for portfolio company equity management and valuation services.
“We are very happy to formally partner with Capshare. For years our clients, especially VC firms, have looked for a solution for cost effective 409(a) and year-end audit related valuation services. The feedback from our clients is always the same – Capshare has the best product, the best people and the best price. The feedback from the audit firms we work with – and we work with all the large firms – is also very positive. Auditors like knowing that Capshare is engaged as it makes their audit process go faster and smoother. We look forward to leveraging more synergies between our firms in the future,” says Standish managing director Robert Raynard.
Capshare has also opened its Silicon Valley office, located in San Francisco’s financial district. “Opening a San Francisco office allows us to strengthen our ties and further build our business in the Valley,” adds Paul.
Capital markets veteran Elizabeth Holthe has joined Capshare as director of investor services. Holthe will be responsible for managing all of Capshare’s interactions with funds and investors.
Holthe brings a wealth of relevant experience, most recently serving as vice president, capital markets/venture services at BTIG. Prior to that, she was vice president of venture services/capital markets at Stifel, Nicolaus, Weisel (formerly Thomas Weisel Partners).
“Elizabeth is uniquely qualified for this role and is a fantastic addition to our management team,” says Paul. “Her knowledge, skill set and standing within the investor community enhance our expertise and credibility. She will be a tremendous asset for the company.”
