Abacus Group, a global provider of IT services for alternative investment firms, today announced it has completed the acquisition of competitor Proactive Technologies. The two companies will merge under the Abacus Group umbrella, combining their leading-edge technologies, similar philosophies of premium customer service, operational synergies and talent pools.
Since its founding in 2007, Proactive has grown to service over 120 alternative investment clients, mostly in the New York City area. As a result of the acquisition, Abacus Group, which as of year-end 2018 services over 400 clients across the US and the UK, will now be the largest IT managed service provider specialized in alternative investment firms in the New York metropolitan region, based on client count. For year-end 2018, Abacus Group and Proactive Technologies reported 23% and 18% year-over-year revenue growth, respectively.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Proactive Technologies. Over the past 12 years, they have built an amazing business and a great team culture. It’s exciting that, together, Abacus and Proactive will be the largest team of engineers and IT support personnel serving alternative investment managers in the New York City area.”
