About the Company:
Founded in 1987 for the singular purpose of delivering a client relationship management solution that was tailored to the needs of institutional asset managers, ProTrak International has not deviated from that goal for the past 25 years. As a privately owned company, ProTrak has been able to reinvest most of its retained earnings to continuously enhance and improve the product over the years as market conditions and regulatory requirements have changed. The principals and senior staff all came from major investment management firms and have been with the company since the beginning.
Market research in the late 1980s showed that there was no CRM technology solution that addressed the unique needs of institutional investment managers. The ProTrak CRM solution was then developed from the ground up to meet the more complex relationship structures common to this space. In particular, since the investment managers had to deal with “client facing” pension consultants, brokers, custodians and other advisory relationships in their fundraising and investor relations activities, it was determined that a multi-tiered, “many-to-many” relationship architecture was needed.
As a major innovator in the field, the ProTrak Advantage CRM product has continuously evolved over the years to match changing technology and market conditions. Feedback from world-class clients among hedge funds, fund-of-funds, private equity and traditional managers has also been a major factor in the evolution of ProTrak.
With a pedigree of world-class clients, including prominent traditional long only asset managers, fund of hedge funds, hedge fund managers and private equity firms, ProTrak is the industry leader and number one provider of client relationship management (CRM) software for the investment community.
