Kestrel has awarded a long-term contract to Lanware to provide its flagship managed service, Finance Forward 365. Kestrel had already adopted Microsoft Cloud and made the decision to transition to a financial services specialist provider more attuned to the business needs of Kestrel and who could mitigate the increasing number of cyber security risks.
As a niche Fund Management business, Kestrel is an activist shareholder taking significant minority equity stakes in AIM and UK-listed, small-cap business-critical software and software services companies.
“We are a small team and were looking for a firm that is fully focused on investment management, with a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory landscape and changing requirements within the IT cyber security space,” says David Prance CFO of Kestrel. “It is refreshing to get to know Lanware’s senior management team who are knowledgeable about our cyber security concerns and will ensure their teams react quickly to our requirements.”
“I’d like to welcome Kestrel into the Lanware community of clients. We are really looking forward to helping their business grow, manage cyber risks and adopt some of the latest technology on the horizon,” highlights Henry Duncombe, MD of Lanware.
