NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2024 – LeaseCrunch LLC (“LeaseCrunch” or “the company”), a leading lease accounting and lease management software provider, today announces a major growth investment from Aquiline Capital Partners LP, a private investment specialist with $10 billion in assets under management that invests across financial services and related technologies.

LeaseCrunch optimizes lease accounting processes for Certified Public Accountant (“CPA”) firms by automating calculations and the required deliverables. The solution allows firms to streamline operations, save time, reduce errors, lower costs and simplify compliance with the new lease accounting standards. Through its distinctive dual access capabilities, LeaseCrunch enables CPA firms to work independently or collaboratively with their clients.

Founded by a team of former CPAs and accounting auditors in 2016, LeaseCrunch has grown to support over 600 CPA firms, including many of the largest in the US. Following the investment from Aquiline, LeaseCrunch will continue to scale the business through organic growth by expanding its product offering and capabilities to better serve its existing customer base and will pursue M&A opportunities to add further capabilities in line with customer demand.
