Executive Opinion

Joshua Pantony, CEO of, said, "The world’s asset managers have never been as focused as they are today on bringing AI to their investment processes, but the number of firms who have successfully developed such capabilities in-house remains remarkably low. For virtually all other managers, a lack of time, money, and talent will prevent machine learning from becoming a core competency or true differentiator. We have spent the past five years building Boosted Insights to solve for that gap in a way that is understandable and explainable to all styles of portfolio managers and allocators."

By taking care of that for them, we are democratizing access to machine learning and allowing investors to focus on the human talent and domain expertise that truly differentiate their businesses."'s Latest Funding
