LONDON–(BUSINESS THREAD)–Tellimer, the global technology, information and data provider, announces the launch of Scriber, a financial intelligence and research platform built for independent analysts, traders, investors, subject matter experts and financial commentators to deliver research , knowledge and business. comment to the growing investment and trading community.
Scriber will target the estimated 300 million individual investors worldwide who trade and invest in a wide range of assets through new real-time trading platforms. These investors are often highly connected through digital and social channels and are underserved by traditional data and information structures. In addition to improving individual investors’ access to investment information, Scriber will also give market professionals access to a wider range of analysis that is otherwise invisible to them.
The Scriber platform will provide an opportunity for experts to provide analysis of niche areas of financial investment, not covered by mainstream sell-side analysts, to monetize their knowledge. Content creators will be able to distribute newsletters directly to paid subscribers and ensure their insights are discoverable across the web and distributed through social networks and research professionals.
Scriber’s proposal builds on Tellimer’s experience operating its Insights platform, an investment research and data platform focused on emerging markets and used by some of the world’s largest institutions and governments.
Scriber has been in open beta testing since April, during which time the platform has already attracted nearly 500 individual and enterprise creators who are delivering their unique content to around 150,000 of their own subscribers. Today is the first day that content creators can access the full suite of paywall and subscription management services to start building their own subscription businesses.
Commenting on Scriber’s launch, Tellimer CEO Duncan Wales said:
“From ESG to crypto to Gamestop, the shape of the global investment market is changing rapidly. Both retail investors and market professionals are severely underserved by established financial reporting structures.
“We created Scriber to build the future infrastructure for the market in financial information and investment knowledge. One where both professional and semi-professional investors and participants can easily access the sharpest independent financial experience.
“It’s a powerful tool that combines the functionality of a professional research authoring platform with the superior SEO and capital markets expertise that Tellimer is known for.”
The semi-professional investment community has expanded rapidly. Retail investor platforms have grown exponentially in recent years, with the independent research market growing 125% since 2015 to reach $900 million by 2020. Smartphone technology has put the ability to trade a range of assets, from stocks to cryptocurrencies, in every consumer’s pocket, making the world of investing accessible to hundreds of millions of people. Crypto investment platform Coinbase has 98 million certified users, up from 20 million in 2018, and share trading apps Robinhood and eToro have nearly 45 million registered users between them.
Conversely, access to much of the professional-grade investment analysis and information remains largely inaccessible. Likewise, investment professionals now have access to less research than before, while expanding the universe of potential investments. Bloomberg, the leading provider of financial information to the professional user community with a 33%1 market share, has only 325,000 terminals worldwide. Similarly, Refinitiv, which has a market share of 19.4%2, has only 190,000 terminals. Scriber will create a controlled medium to create transparency for professional and semi-professional investors alike by distributing analysis from Scriber writers in demand by professional readers directly to these professional platforms. New entrants, including smaller professional organizations, often can’t afford or don’t need a Bloomberg or Refinitiv terminal, and even large institutions can be cut off from the information and expertise they should be able to access because they are not available or are difficult to find, scattered. on social networks or in unstructured and undiscoverable forms on the web.
Scriber is the financial information and research platform for the independent investment community. The home of independent business analysts, traders, investors and commentators to provide the growing investment community with subscription-driven financial research, insights and information. Scriber is aimed at newly empowered professionals and semi-professionals investors underserved by the institutional financial information market and allows them to monetize their expertise. Built specifically for financial professionals, no coding knowledge required, and with fully integrated writing, publishing and analytics features, Scriber gives writers everything they need to build a subscription business, in one simple tool. It is built and supported by Tellimer, which has a strong track record of delivering high-quality publishing platforms.
