WorldQuant Ventures, an angel investment firm focused on disruptive companies in technology, with a particular focus on data and finance, has invested in Certrax Risk Compliance Solutions, Inc. 

Certrax is a state-of-the-art application and service that allows real estate owners, property managers and service providers to manage third-party risk by electronically tracking, managing and storing contracts and insurance certificates. As part of the agreement, Steven Lau, Managing Director at WorldQuant Ventures, will join Certrax’s Board of Directors.

The application’s cutting edge technology, along with its superior leadership, including Certrax’s Chief Executive Officer Brian O’Keefe and Chief Operating Officer Robert Mitchell, offer an attractive opportunity for WorldQuant Ventures to help expand Certrax’s compliance risk assessment and reporting offering.

“WorldQuant Ventures is pleased to announce our investment in Certrax Risk Compliance Solutions and its leading compliance web application,” says Lau. “I look forward to joining Certrax’s Board of Directors during this important juncture as we work with the company to innovate and help it realize its future growth potential.”

“We are extremely excited to have WorldQuant Ventures as an integral part of our Board of Directors, which will shape the strategic direction of the company. Our Board and investors help us to accelerate growth through capital, but more importantly, through a broad range of relevant experience, expertise and networks. From our first meeting with WorldQuant Ventures, we knew that Steven and his executive team were exactly what we needed to continue to enhance our product offering and add scale to our client base,” says Brian O’Keefe, Chief Executive Officer of Certrax.
