Israel-based Tipigo develops software that allows customers to automate their investment portfolios using algorithms, known as robo-advisers, that take into account market data and research and user preferences.
“It’s an automated advisor,” said Tipigo’s chief executive officer Elran Bor in an interview. “The system’s engine recognizes when there is a match between a specific investment opportunity and a customer’s investment profile. The algorithm analyzes customer characteristics such as available budget and risk preference.”
