Level39 member StockViews, the online equity research platform which connects professional investors to a network of independent analysts, has raised £250,000 in seed funding and also appointed ex-Fidelity head Thomas Balk as chairman.
Balk is the former head of Financial Services at Fidelity and comes with 25 years experience in the global asset management industry. Balk joins CEO Thomas Beevers and CTO Sandeep Bathina.
The seed funding will enable StockViews to ramp up its focus on machine learning and AI. This funding comes from the London Co Investment Fund and three angel investors, including angel syndicate Craigie Capital.
Tom Beevers, CEO of StockViews said: “We’re delighted to have such a high caliber executive heading up our board. He brings with him a deep understanding of our customer needs and will be instrumental in shaping our strategy. His endorsement is a huge validation of this new approach to equity research.”
