The financing takes place during a growth phase for the company. Synergy, AccessFintech’s data collaboration network, has grown to over 100 participants and expanded its asset class coverage to include derivatives and syndicated loans.

It has also expanded its securities offering by expanding its lifecycle management through its new claims network and the launch of a predictive outage service.
