It’s not easy even for the biggest banks to stay on top of the ever-changing rules and regulations which govern them and their industry, let alone resource-strained fintech startups.

Clausematch, launched by Evgeny Likhoded in 2014, is an attempt to fix that issue by creating a kind of Google Docs on steroids to keep track of audit trails and version controls across hundreds of contributors and documents that span thousands of pages.

Today Likhoded unveiled a $2.5m loan package from Silicon Valley Bank which will support the company's growth in Europe and especially Asia where Clausematch just opened a Singapore office to serve clients with a presence in the region.

"ClauseMatch's growth has been driven by the need for a new approach to compliance as financial institutions struggle to navigate complex regulatory environments across countries where they operate,” said Likhoded.

“Our clients being global means that we already have a presence in many regions across the world.”

Clausematch last year raised a $5m equity funding round from star investor Index Ventures and now says 50% of its clients are fintechs.
