Preqin, an alternative investment industry data provider, has bought a controlling stake in Baxon Solutions, a UK-based provider of cloud-based monitoring solutions for the private equity sector for an undisclosed sum.

The latest acquisition comes after the two firms formed a strategic partnership in January 2015.

Preqin said the deal will initially focus on further development of Baxon’s portfolio management and investor reporting platform, and expansion into other geographies.

Baxon founders- Jorge Hanson and Paula Espana- will continue to hold a minority holding in the firm after deal completion.

Preqin CEO Mark O’Hare said: “The private equity industry is facing a period of increasing reporting and regulator challenges, and Baxon’s platform is ideally placed to help fund managers in navigating them.” 

London-based Baxon was set up in 2005. Baxon PCMS delivered a tailored platform to offer automated solutions to clients for carrying out a range of front and middle office activities, including monitoring, analysing, benchmarking and reporting on portfolio company and fund performance.
