Portfolios are becoming increasingly complex, generating more and more data. But the systems used to access and interpret that data aren’t keeping up. That means a frustrating experience for investment managers, asset owners and their advisors.
Managers spend too much time sifting data, jumping between systems and compiling reports. When they should focus on what they do best – improving performance, engaging clients and growing AUM.
What if there was a way to have a real single source of truth? A platform that brings all asset information into one place, with an intuitive user experience for managers and owners alike. That's why we created Sesame.
Since inception in 2018, we have helped asset managers, family offices and trustees focus on what matters most: making informed investment decisions and deepening their client relationships.
