Their softwares are designed to assess risk, creating and improving portfolios, as well as providing advisory solutions.
The firms offer their services to clients in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
They plan to use the new investment to accelerate their business growth.
Edgelab and Evooq CEO and founder Cedric Ullmo said: “With this investment, Edgelab and Evooq gain capital at a critical stage of growth for the companies that will help increase resources needed to deliver core portfolio products and initiatives.”
