QuantCube Technology Secures Series B Funding to Support Business Growth

Real-time economic intelligence provider QuantCube Technology announced that it has secured funding led by Strategic Development Fund (SDF), the investment arm of UAE’s Tawazun Council, “together with previous backers Moody’s and Five Capital, and other private investors.”

Using AI to analyze billions of alternative data points in real time, QuantCube claims it is the global leader “in macroeconomic intelligence nowcasting and in pinpointing macro regime change.” The new funding will “help the firm deliver on its vision to become the standard point of reference for real-time macroeconomic, corporate and environmental intelligence.”

Headquartered in Paris, QuantCube will “build on its existing presence by establishing new offices in Abu Dhabi focused on research and development, as well as offices in Tokyo and New York dedicated to sales and operations.”

Ghizlaine Amrani, COO and Co-Founder, QuantCube Technology, said:

“Increased focus on geopolitical and macroeconomic issues means the ability to derive insights from real-time data across markets and at scale has never been more essential. With our newly secured funding, we look forward to expanding our offerings into new regions and delivering market-leading economic intelligence to new customers. We would like to thank our existing stakeholders for their continued support as well as our new partners for this truly transformational investment.”

Abdulla Naser Al Jaabari, Managing Director and CEO of SDF said:

“SDF looks at investing in companies within specific sectors that have technological solutions that provide an edge to their customers. When it comes to macroeconomic nowcasting, QuantCube Technology’s capabilities are unmatched and users of QuantCube data benefit from highly accurate real-time insights. As one of QuantCube’s latest strategic investors, SDF will be working closely to support the ongoing growth of QuantCube with additional applications building on QuantCube’s capability and platform in new industries and use cases throughout the UAE and globally.”

QuantCube’s Macroeconomic Intelligence Platform “delivers macro nowcasting indices on variables including economic growth, inflation, employment and international trade for the G20 and emerging economies—providing critical insight on market turning points across asset classes from equities to fixed income, commodities and foreign exchange.”

Established in 2013, QuantCube Technology “uses artificial intelligence and big data analytics to deliver real-time macro-economic insights.”

The firm claims it “operates one of the largest alternative data lakes in the world, processing more than 14 billion data end points.”

Sources reportedly “encompass news, social media, satellite data, professional networks and consumer reviews, as well as international trade, shipping, real-estate, hospitality and telecoms data.”

QuantCube’s macro nowcast indices, “on variables including economic growth, inflation, employment and international trade, correlate highly with official data and significantly beat the consensus.”

Financial institutions using QuantCube data “benefit from real-time insight, often ahead of official numbers, which they can use to inform their investment strategies.”
