Juniper Square Digital Subscription Clients Raised 17% More Capital
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Juniper Square, the leading provider of partnership enablement for the private funds industry, today announced that GPs using the company’s Digital Subscriptions tool raised $17.5 billion in investor capital in 2022; 61% more than the $10.9 billion raised in 2021. The average amount raised per GPs using Digital Subscriptions grew 15% year-over-year to $27 million in 2022, up from $23.4 million in 2021. This marks the third year Juniper Square has tracked a substantial increase in the number of sponsors and amount of funds raised using Digital Subscriptions.
“The accelerating digitization of fundraising is indicative of the new market realities for private fund GPs,” said Matt Lawson, CMO of Juniper Square. “LPs increasingly expect experiences that rival the best digital experience they had as consumers. The data is clear – by digitizing the subscription experience, GPs can raise more capital and close faster with less effort.”
Among more than 1,700 client GPs, 36% use Juniper Square Digital Subscriptions to automate and accelerate the fundraising process by digitally assembling subscription documents, validating data capture and capturing e-signatures. On average, firms that used Digital Subscriptions in 2022 raised 17% more capital per GP compared to those that did not.
“We expect our total equity raised next year will be somewhere between $50 million and $100 million. I think our ability to raise capital is only going to get better as our network continues to expand,” said Tyler Arrington, partner at Staubach Capital. “Whether those deals require $3 million or $30 million, Juniper Square has set us up nicely to execute when we find them.”
For the second year, Juniper Square has released its “Top Fundraisers” list of the 20 most successful GPs that used Digital Subscriptions to raise capital, organized by the amount of investor assets under management (AUM).
