Investing intelligence provider TradingView has closed a $298 million investment round led by Tiger Global.
The round values London, UK-headquartered TradingView at $3 billion, following 18 months of increasing visitor numbers and a jump in created accounts.
Founded in 2011, TradingView has built a platform for sharing and sourcing trading and investment information and insight accessed by a reported 30 million monthly users.
The company says it is doubling down on its broker relationships and is expecting to partner and integrate with most major brokerage platforms over the next few years to allow consumers to trade directly from TradingView, while using their preferred financial institutions.
Denis Globa, chief executive officer and co-founder of TradingView, says: “We’re excited to be partnering with Tiger Global. Their global fintech expertise and insights will contribute significantly to furthering TradingView’s vision of informed financial trading and investing for the world.”
“We built this company with the belief that people everywhere want the same thing: to be in control of their own economic futures. We work towards this by creating an environment where all traders and investors can ‘Look first / Then leap’. That it doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’re from, you’ll always have access to the best tools and the best insights to find your right trading opportunities, then act on them.”
Alex Cook, partner at Tiger Global, adds: “TradingView’s global reach, strong product offering, and engaged customer base positions the company to be the default social network and financial analysis platform used by all traders and investors.”
“We’re looking forward to helping Denis and the team realise this ambition and expand the company’s market leadership position.”
