Shiv Sibal commented: “Assureweb has grown with the support of the Shareholders and is well placed to maintain its position as a leader in financial services technology solutions. We are delighted to have supported the Shareholders in their transfer of the stewardship of the business to iPipeline, whose complementary products and experience will allow Assureweb to continue its ascent.”
