Why we invested

The global structured products market is worth approximately US$3 trillion and growing at over 10% per annum. The complexity of structured products requires a high volume of associated legal and regulatory documents which have historically been drafted manually. WSD’s market-leading software solutions automate the creation and management of these documents thereby reducing cost, increasing efficiency and improving the accuracy of the data provided to its clients. The company has a significant opportunity for further growth as it meets increasing demand and expands into adjacent markets.
