TFG Asset Management today announces that through Banyan Square Partners, it has made a strategic investment in WovenLight Limited, a technology company focused on the private equity industry that deploys sophisticated data analytics augmented by artificial intelligence to improve corporate performance.

WovenLight was founded by Simon Williams, who previously co-founded QuantumBlack, a machine learning and data sciences consulting firm launched in 2009 and acquired by McKinsey & Company in 2015.  WovenLight’s core business is to work with private equity sponsors in pre-acquisition rapid diagnostics as well as post-acquisition portfolio value creation.

Banyan Square Partners is TFG Asset Management’s private equity business focusing on non-control equity investments, as well as opportunistic investments in public equity and credit instruments – primarily investing in enterprise software and technology companies.  Its strategic investment in WovenLight is intended to create opportunities for collaboration across co-investments and technological knowledge sharing.

Simon Williams, the Managing Director of WovenLight commented, “We are excited to partner with Banyan Square Partners and TFG Asset Management because of their experience of both investing in the technology space as well as working with entrepreneurs to help them scale businesses.”

Reade Griffith, the Chief Investment Officer of TFG Asset Management commented, “AI, data science and machine learning are rapidly changing the investment landscape and investment processes.  Simon and WovenLight bring valuable experience in these fields onto our platform.  As WovenLight enters its growth phase, we look forward to collaborating with them across TFG Asset Management’s businesses, learning from their experiences in helping organizations improve operational performance through data science.”
