Our History

Our experience in the field of robo-advisory started in 2015 with a B2B AI project trial. Based on this prototype, we launched our AI-driven Robo-Advisor called Alphie™, which started simulating asset allocation proposals in 2016. In 2018, we finally launched our premium platform, able to produce daily forecasts on stocks, ETFs, currencies, mutual funds & bonds.
