Description of the company
Quantlfo helps institutional fund-of-fund investors remove the friction of building and monitoring investment portfolios. By giving investment teams the tools to operate like one well-oiled machine, it helps institutions reduce fees and optimize investment returns.
This means more savings for pension participants, more competitive insurance products and more capital for charities and foundations.
In an industry of fragmented solutions where investment teams struggle to use six different systems, Quantflo provides a holistic and globally scalable platform that enables these teams to build, monitor and research investment portfolios without a single line of code..
Antler investment thesis
“What makes us excited about Quantflo is that it solves a persistent and growing problem within the investment industry, particularly for institutional fund-of-fund investors,” said Bede Moore, Managing Partner of Antler APAC.
“Quantflo’s platform, powered by artificial intelligence, will help institutional constrained partners who struggle to optimize return on investment due to inefficient processes, inadequate modeling capabilities and insufficient analytics.
Traction/milestones, so far
Within four months of its launch, Quantflo has already launched a product owned by some of the leading institutional investors in the retirement, insurance and wealth sectors.
In addition, the team has a full assembly line with products waiting to be deployed. These products form an ecosystem of investment tools that together provide a holistic solution for customers.

Use of funds
Antler’s investment will accelerate Quantflo’s product growth and enable the founders to build the foundation for quality institutional infrastructure.
The founders say:
Philip Kim, co-founder and CEO of Quantflo said: “We are revolutionizing the way investors build, monitor and reconfigure investment portfolios by creating a centralized investment platform that is advanced, flexible, yet easy to use.
“Our industry is filled with fragmented investment platforms that are so painful to use and only really help with bits and pieces of the investment process. We think the reason for this is that the industry has built systems around investment concepts that have continued to evolve over the past two decades, while building up technical debt on the platforms in the meantime.
“We are now seeing a sliding door moment for the industry, with maturity in investment research paving the way for an agile start-up like us to build a platform designed for the next generation. Antler helped our company get started by giving us key ingredients at every step of the design and fundraising process.”
