About Mercatus
At Mercatus, we are passionate about building trust and sustainability in private market investing. We do this by providing investors speed, transparency, and flexibility in managing their private investments. Mercatus has pioneered a modern data management technology platform that digitally transforms how private investors invest and operate to accelerate the return on their investments (deal to divestment). We do so by empowering stakeholders with collaborative Cloud-based analytic technology that integrates the information and processes needed to optimally manage the complete end to end investment lifecycle of diverse private investment portfolios.
