Stratiphy has forged a partnership with WealthKernel, a wealthtech provider of digital investment services, to launch its investment app in the UK next year.

Stratiphy’s app enables users to make investment decisions by allowing them to compare different scenarios.

It also provides investors the option to select their own investment preferences and view historical performance.

Additionally, the app combines analytics and environmental, social, and governance ratings (ESG) to help users compare companies.

As part of the tie-up, Stratiphy will leverage WealthKernel’s investment infrastructure as well as and its Appointed Representative service.

The partnership will also see the firm tapping WealthKernel’s brokerage and custody services as well as its regulatory umbrella to support the UK rollout of its app.

It is expecting to launch in-app live trading in the country in the second quarter of next year, following a £440k crowdfunding campaign this September.

Commenting on the partnership, WealthKernel CEO Karan Shanmugarajah said: “It’s incredibly exciting for us at WealthKernel to be enabling more businesses like Stratiphy who are not only democratising access to investment, but helping investors seeking to grow their investment knowledge and invest in companies leading the way environmentally.

Stratiphy CEO and co-founder Daniel Gold added: “This is a step change in our ability to service retail clients, and we couldn’t have found a better partner in WealthKernel.

“Our common vision of promoting financial inclusion, paired with the flexibility and sophistication that their platform provides, means we can offer a range of innovative services to the next generation of investors.”

Last week, Schroders Capital agreed to buy Dutch real estate fund and asset management business Cairn Real Estate in a bid to bolster its real estate investment capabilities.
