Darqube Announces Crowdfunding Effort, Aims To Democratize Finance With Trading Analytics Platform

Darqube, a U.K.-based trading technologies company, has brought to market an analytics platform aimed at helping retail market enthusiasts, traders and portfolio managers gain access to insights formerly available at the institutional level.

Thhe firm’s founder Rostislav Haliplii spoke with Benzinga about the democratization of financial technology.

Why Darqube?

Haliplii is a veteran in the institutional asset management and trading space. He studied financial engineering at Imperial College London prior to working as a quantitative trader and risk manager.

His experiences allowed him to found Darqube, an all-inclusive trading technology that allows users access to the same cutting-edge insights institutions leverage in generating consistent returns.

“The idea was to build an all-in-one platform where people can look at the markets, socialize, and create bots without programming skills,” Haliplii said. “It’s something very similar to what institutional traders do on a daily basis, but tailored for retail.”
