About Us

Allocator was born out of experience and frustration. Formerly fund allocators, we recognized the importance of having comprehensive data that is standardized and up to date. Doing this seamlessly and efficiently had been a persistent and expensive issue, one that we set about solving by developing the platform in 2012. We are passionate about technology and harnessing it to enable investors to spend fewer resources managing data and have more time to use it.
