Predictive financial analytics startup FundGuard emerged from stealth this week with a $4 million round of funding led by Blumberg Capital and LionBird.

 

The company, which has offices in New York and Tel Aviv, Israel, describes itself as “a next-generation cloud-based platform to manage investment funds across mutual funds, hedge funds, insurance, and pension assets.” It also claims to be the “world’s first artificial intelligence powered cloud platform to bring investment funds technology out of the ‘digital ice age.’”
