Fintuple is an alternate fund research platform that brings the fund management industry in India under one umbrella. The platform allows members to access in-demand managers at low investment minimums. More importantly, the research offerings on the platform help with due-diligence and making investment decisions for the members.
Google defines ‘tuple’ as follows:
a data structure consisting of multiple parts.
(in a relational database) an ordered set of data constituting a record.
forming nouns and adjectives with a preceding algebraic symbol with the sense ‘(an entity or set) consisting of as many parts or elements as indicated by the symbol, such as n-tuple.
‘Fin’ + ‘tuple’ is intended to sort out the “data” issues in fund management by standardising or getting the data in order. Or viewed from another angle; we intend to help investors “n-tuple” their investments through intelligent investment decisions.
Fintuple was born out of a pain point personally experienced by the founders.
Naveen, our co-founder & CEO, a fund manager by background had a personal pain point around improving the user experience for investors around their access to their portfolio. As he spoke to multiple asset managers and investors, most of them communicated a uniform challenge they faced around non-transparency in the industry. Siloed nature of the information being accessed ensured inconsistencies around data.
Kaushik, Fintuple’s co-founder & COO and formerly Head of Digital & Products for large Tech Consulting firms in the US, was looking for data on funds to invest his personal money when he took a decision to return to India. He dealt with multiple banks and wealth management products each showing a separate product and varying performance data. There was a lack of emphasis on the fund manager and the people behind the fund. In the US, the data on the asset management industry was available to investors who were willing to pay for it, but the Indian market seemed to lack consistency in the access to products and information, which opened us up to a challenging and interesting product solution design.
It was a moment of fate that their common passion aligned with a longer-term vision of building a company focussed on enabling and creating the infrastructure layer of asset management in the country.
Fintuple was thus born with a goal of taking the Indian fund management industry globally.
Fintuple is a technology company at heart. Our vision of enabling and scaling the Indian asset management industry is driven by a team of passionate product architects, analysts, and engineers.
Fintuple has two co-founders whose job is to assist, help, and work with the team to execute the company’s vision.
Kaushik, the COO, is the cool face behind the organization – casual and calm, he is obsessive about details and focused on the product development vision, engineering, and architecture. When it is not the company he is obsessing about, it is his kids.
Naveen, the CEO, is the serious face of the organization. His life revolves around a core maxim – “There is no short cut to success”. He is keen on making Chennai a financial hub and taking the Indian fund management industry global.
