Empyrean Solutions Raises $74 Million Growth Financing Led by Spectrum Equity

Woburn, MA - Empyrean Solutions, a leading provider of asset and liability management and risk and compliance solutions for banks and credit unions, today announced a $74 million minority growth financing led by Spectrum Equity, a leading growth equity firm focused on Internet-enabled software and information services companies, with participation from Information Venture Partners. The investment represents Empyrean’s first institutional capital and will accelerate the company’s investment in product innovation to help finance leaders make better strategic decisions.

Empyrean’s software allows banks and credit unions of all sizes to take control of their balance sheet management, scenario planning, and risk analysis in a single software platform. The company offers a host of modules, including asset and liability management, liquidity stress testing, deposit analytics, budgeting, and profitability to provide a centralized view of an institution’s financial strength for the broader office of the CFO and key business stakeholders.

Led by industry veterans with extensive expertise in financial institution risk management technology, Empyrean has grown rapidly, tripling revenue over the past 3 years while operating profitably, as leading banks and credit unions have increasingly adopted Empyrean software solutions. “We designed Empyrean to help finance leaders effectively manage balance sheet risks and meet regulatory requirements. As the needs of our customers have evolved, Empyrean has expanded its platform capabilities right alongside them”, said Chris Maclin, CEO of Empyrean. “Our new partnership with Spectrum Equity will further our commitment to provide best-in-class risk and balance sheet management solutions and accelerate our investment in product offerings that meet the evolving business and planning needs of financial institution CFOs.”

Raffi Festekjian, Executive Chairman of Empyrean, added “Empyrean’s success to date has been achieved by combining a modern, intuitive platform that spans all key risk and finance functions, market leading data processing which enables clients to run scenarios and produce reports in a fraction of the time and effort required on other platforms, and through our track record of continuous product innovation. We are thrilled to partner with Spectrum Equity as they share our vision to accelerate product-led growth over the coming years.”

Empyrean has powered the balance sheet analysis of over $2 trillion of cumulative customer AUM since its founding in 2010. Jonathan Roberts, Director of Finance at Signature Bank, a longstanding customer said, “Empyrean’s platform is highly intuitive and user friendly, enabling us to analyze risk data and make informed financial and business decisions that ensure the health and success of the bank. Their customer support has been outstanding and has allowed us to get the most from the platform’s advanced capabilities.”

Adam Margolin, Managing Director of Spectrum Equity, added, “Empyrean uniquely enables financial institutions to consolidate historically siloed financial and risk management functions and analysis on a single platform, driving strategic insights and significant efficiency and operational gains. We are excited to partner with the Empyrean team as they build a category-defining company with a singular focus on the strategic needs of the financial institution CFO.”

In conjunction with Spectrum Equity’s investment, Adam Margolin and Lauren Shimbo from Spectrum Equity will join Empyrean’s board of directors.
