The 2016 Tradestreaming Awards winners: Best investing technology and fintech investors

Fintech entrepreneurs focused on two seemingly contradictory things when it comes to investing. On one hand, we have roboadvisors that automate the investment process, removing the human element and biases we bring to the table. On the other hand, big data and analytics firms continue to bring new inputs to active investors to help them make better investments.

The Tradestreaming Awards recognize the talent, energy, and vision that are required to create great digital financial products and the people who create them. The following are our inaugural winners in the investing category.

Best Research Provider

Awarding a business that continuously excels at producing the highest quality research for individual or professional investors.
