StockViews has picked up funding for its second investment round, from firm’s including GWC.
Various media reports have stated the investment is around $500,000.
Founded in 2015, the company is a marketplace connecting professional investors to data analytics, created by self-employed analysts.
StockViews gives the research a rating, with the top performing analysts receiving a higher share of subscription fees, to encourage high quality data.
With the capital, StockViews plans to add more senior experts to its team and launch an equity research platform later this year.
StockViews CEO Tom Beevers said, “As a result of the upcoming regulatory changes under Mifid II, it is clear there is a growing demand for high quality, differentiated equity research.
“The new capital, our expanding team of leading analysts and the arrival of our new executive chairman will position us well for this opportunity.”
The firm received a $355,000 investment around this time last year and a $15,000 seed round in 2015.
Following the investment, the company named former Fidelity president as its new executive chairman.
