AnalytixInsight’s Hidden Value in an AI-Powered FinTech Play

AnalytixInsight’s Hidden Value in an AI-Powered FinTech Play

Capital markets regulations are pressuring traditional business models for producing investment research.

MiFID II, for example, requires the separation of research costs and trading commissions. This resulted in less buy-side spending on sell-side research.

Machine-generated research could be an attractive alternative across the broker dealer spectrum, especially in Europe where the discount broker business is evolving.

MarketWall, AnalytixInsight’s stock trading and financial apps subsidiary, could be a big beneficiary from these trends.

UGE Sells Solar Facility Well Above Current Implied Valuation

UGE International announced the sale of one of its completed solar projects (AND 3 new ones AND the completion of another).

Kontrol Energy’s BioCloud can detect airborne COVID-19 in real-time and has the potential to detect future viruses.

Promising Vaccine News, But Health Threat Remains

The world breathed a collective sigh of relief at Pfizer and BioNTech’s announcement of a COVID-19 vaccine candidate passing phase 3 trials. While recent market moves signal that the risks from COVID-19 has passed, we believe that the virus could continue to impact the world for some time to come. Virus detection is the bridge between the cure and for controlling case loads.

We witnessed another week of decent small tech capital markets activity in Canada. In the USA, with the Thanksgiving shortened holiday week, another massive Stripe up-round, Metromile’s SPAC and Discord’s financing were perhaps the most topical news items.

November 22, 2020

It was a robust week for tech financing in Canada, as well as another high profile M&A exit. While, in the USA, there’s news of a few more high profile tech IPOs. Usually capital markets activity slows down markedly between the American Thanksgiving holiday and the New Year, but with a lack of Holiday parties this year, it remains to be seen if this holds true.
