Our mission and team

We modernize the fund and debt services industry

Silcube was founded by a group of fund management professionals who felt a need for an all-around platform designed to support modern investment management.

What we visioned was a versatile platform that has all the data, functionality and reporting for managers available in one place. All of this was implemented in a cloud-based solution, which means that it is simple to set up, simple to use – and accessible everywhere in the world.

We designed Silcube to help fund managers to do their work better and more professionally. It leads the way to smarter risk management, more simpler processes and avoidance of costly mistakes.  

Our finished service is a product of meticulous development for almost a decade, carefully tested and ready to take on the market. Already used by a growing number of satisfied industry professionals, Silcube marks the beginning of the modern age in fund management.
