PortfolioStrat is a cloud-based trading workflow tool SaaS Platform Portfolio Manager for hedge funds, asset managers, and other sophisticated investors. The platform helps professional investors generate investment ideas through screens and advanced analysis and visualization with statistical analyses, machine learning / data science, and other overlays. We are a team of former hedge fund portfolio managers, investment bank quants and technologists work to connect all parts of the professional investor's workflow in the cloud.

We have recently launched a beta product that has been 1.5 years in development and is backed by over 7 years of prototyping, IP, and industry knowledge. We have 10-20 hedge fund clients who have signed up to be early users of the platform and have signed a major broker to use it.

The two co-founders are looking to disrupt the entire investment workflow of a front office portfolio manager stuck on Bloomberg and Excel spreadsheets. We are closing our seed round now and have previously raised a round of friends and family capital last year.

What We're Building

PortfolioStrat is a cloud-based workflow for investment professionals built by investment professionals.

It provides a platform for investors to seamlessly and efficiently engage in trade idea generation and portfolio management. Users can build custom trade idea screens and valuation models across all asset classes and structure trades with single and cross asset scenario analysis.

The platform is also set up for screens to interact with each other whereby you can set alerts on trade indices from the dashboard and get emails packages from your alerts. Our analytical and monitoring capabilities empower traders with the ability to generate actionable trade ideas and effectively manage their portfolio, all at a cost far cheaper than an internal quant team.

We aim to position ourselves not as a provider of data, such as Bloomberg, but rather as a platform for the smart analysis of large financial data sets. As such, our initial target market is small to medium sized hedge funds.
