Workiva and Lionpoint Group Create Strategic Partnership to Automate Compliance and Financial Reporting for Global Investment Managers

LONDON – October 17, 2018 – Workiva (NYSE:WK), a leader in data collaboration, reporting and compliance solutions, and Lionpoint Group, a global advisory firm specialising in alternative investments, jointly announce a strategic partnership to combine Lionpoint’s business strategy, technology and operational expertise with the Workiva Wdesk platform to help global investment managers automate financial reporting and regulatory compliance.

Lionpoint Group will offer solutions built on the Wdesk platform to give investment managers cloud-based capabilities for synchronised data, controlled collaboration and real-time data monitoring. Wdesk enables users to link narrative with numbers and work simultaneously in the same version, which saves time, reduces errors and gives them confidence in their data when reporting to boards, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders.

“Combining our Wdesk platform with Lionpoint Group’s experts creates a unified solution and team to help customers modernize complex compliance and reporting processes,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. “By working together, we will help global investment managers gain insights, make data-driven decisions and ultimately drive better business outcomes.”

Lionpoint Group’s global client base spans the alternative investment industry, including asset management, private equity, private debt, infrastructure and real estate investment management.

“We are excited to introduce Wdesk to our clients as a new platform solution for a wide range of financial, compliance, regulatory, tax and investor reporting requirements,” said Nick Moore, Executive Director at Lionpoint Group. “One of the strong features of the technology is that it can be applied to a range of business uses without the need for technical configuration or customisation. Wdesk enables legal, risk and compliance teams to quickly configure and collaborate in respect of their reporting needs.”
