FinTech Studios' Apollo.ai uses a powerful artificial intelligence (AI) engine to curate content that is relevant to our users' investment universe of interest. The industry‑leading intelligence app has been integrated into thinkFolio, providing enhanced, real-time decision support and discovery features to portfolio managers, traders and other cross-functional users. Information is delivered contextually alongside users' investment exposure data and active orders, so they can manage their portfolios and consume timely company and industry news and market data on the same platform and via a single workbench.
FinTech Studios collects information from millions of public and premium sources, including news, research, social media, blogs, regulatory, corporate and industry outlets. Information is indexed, tagged and translated from 42 languages to support discovery, analysis, research and idea generation. The integration with thinkFolio utilizes deep-linking across modular screens to enable users to view the most recent news and financial data related to a specific issuer, industry or asset class. Users can also create customized personal channels that curate content according to their consumption preferences and investment domains of interest.
Integration with FinTech Studios is part of thinkFolio's strategy of interoperability, which provides clients with the option of leveraging an ecosystem of complementary third-party solutions. The suite of integrations supports clients throughout the investment lifecycle, from portfolio construction and pre-trade risk analytics to post-trade operations and performance attribution.
"The partnership with FinTech Studios brings interoperable, actionable news and market intelligence to thinkFolio clients exactly when and where they need it," said Brett Schechterman, Managing Director and Global Head of thinkFolio at IHS Markit. "This integration, when accompanied with clients' proprietary research, will augment thinkFolio's decision support suite with curated, contextual, real-time insights from a leading-edge information search engine and will help to drive further user productivity and efficiency."
"Sound investment management is driven by informed decision-making and idea generation," said Jim Tousignant, CEO at FinTech Studios. "With this integration, we can bring our acclaimed AI-based information and intelligence solution to thinkFolio clients worldwide and ensure that front-office users can access the real-time news and financials that are directly relevant to their investment universe of interest and augment their in-house research and decision support content."
