Catena Group Plc is a UK based venture capital corporation established to acquire or invest in companies operating in high growth industries.
With its investment in Insight Capital Partners in March 2020, Catena Group has begun to refocus its strategy toward artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Insight is an artificial intelligence company that combines quantitative research, data engineering and machine learning to deliver bespoke analytical tools to financial services clients, enabling them to extract data from outdated platforms and improve the accessibility and knowledge locked within.
Machine learning is widely recognised as having the potential to fundamentally benefit performance and profitability in many, if not all, industries. Catena’s investment in Insight is a first step toward a broader strategy to capitalise on growth opportunities in AI and machine learning and represents the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for the Group.
Artificial intelligence will completely transform industries across the board.
Financial services will be an extraordinary beneficiary of this shift
