Our mission is to free clients from the burden of manual investment data management

Development of Canoe’s proprietary technology began in 2013 by a group of sophisticated investors focused on alternative and illiquid strategies. We realized that it was difficult, costly and time consuming to manually track all our own investments, so we decided to automate it.
