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.

The story so far

Since our investment in 2022, WSD has delivered strong revenue growth, fuelled by both organic and acquisitive expansion, including its investment in Germany-based Solvians. This acquisition has strengthened the company’s presence across the structured products value chain and bolstered its position in Continental Europe. WSD has also expanded its senior management team, including appointing a Chief Financial Officer, Chief Information Officer and Chief Commercial Officer.

Bowmark’s investment is helping to accelerate the delivery of the company’s product development roadmap and extend WSD’s infrastructure across North America, Europe and Asia.

We have found a partner who truly understands our business and shares our vision of offering banks a straight-through automation solution for structured products and OTC derivatives. Bowmark’s previous experience in the sector is invaluable as we move to the next stage of our development. Mathias Strasser,Founder and CEO
