Indian investment technology platform WealthDesk has raked in $3.2m in its pre-series A funding round to accelerate growth.

As part of its pre-series A funding round, the firm raised an undisclosed amount in January from prominent technology business corporates and market participants as well as senior executives from global banks.

The latest round was joined by a number of investors including ex-Blackstone partner and co-head of India private equity practice Mathew Cyriac.

WealthDesk will use the new capital to bolster its operations with the hiring of new resources to further develop its technology offering.

The firm also plans to boost investment in its research and development segment.

Established in 2016, WealthDesk enables investment portfolio creation via ‘WealthBaskets’ that consists stocks and ETFs.
