SharingAlpha is making its presence felt amongst the professional adviser community as the world’s largest fund rating agency.
The ‘world’s largest’ claim is based on the number of fund analysts contributing to its ratings.
It’s a user generated fund ratings and model portfolios platform that rates funds based on the average rating provided by fund selectors worldwide.
SharingAlpha says that apart from being able to create a better fund rating, it is also able to rank the individual ‘raters’ in terms of their talent in selecting funds. It covers over 100,000 funds listed in some 110 countries.
It also allows investment advisors to build virtual Fund of Funds and in turn SharingAlpha ranks them based on their performance, not only as Fund Selectors, but also as Asset Allocators.
SharingAlpha, an Israeli based FinTech company, was founded by two brothers, Oren and Yuval Kaplan.
Oren Kaplan has over 20 years of experience in the financial industry and Yuval Kaplan has a technical background.
Oren Kaplan (pictured above) said: “Our vision is to offer the investment community a better way to select winning funds and at the same time to offer Fund Selectors and Investment Advisors the option of building their own proven long term track record. It’s about time that funds are rated on the basis of parameters that have been proven to work and Fund Selectors and Investment Advisors will be judged according to their ability to add value to investors.”
