Upside AI, one of India’s first funds that combine machine learning and fundamentals-based investing announces a strategic partnership with Smallcase, an investment platform. The association will enable Upside AI to offer research services to a large set of investors across India. At present, Upside AI serves high net worth individuals and family offices with minimum ticket sizes over Rs 50 lakh, while the products under this association are tailored to meet the evolving needs of retail investors with a much lower threshold (Rs 1-5 lakh).
As seen in developed markets, the future of investing in India is tech-led, rules-based ("systemized") as opposed to being human-led. Since most managers on the Smallcase platform are human-driven, Upside AI expects to stand out given its proprietary technology and consistent track record. Upside AI will work jointly with Smallcase to popularize systemized investing and to attract even more investors into the fold.
Atanuu Agarrwal, Co-founder, Upside AI, said, “Our association with Smallcase is in line with our long term vision to be India’s largest end-to-end tech-led asset management company. I believe systemized investing will dominate Indian markets in the next decade and Upside AI will be a key player in that space. Smallcase is a great platform allows us to accelerate that journey and empower retail investors – there is no reason why access to the best investment tech should be restricted to just the ultra-wealthy.”
