Our companies have individual values and tackle different aspects of research, development, operations and administration. However, they are interlinked and share the requisite knowledge to deliver complex solutions that shape the future of wealth management innovation.

Raw Knowledge is laser-focused on niche data delivery. In contrast, Thought Ventures takes a bigger-picture approach, looking for inspiring ideas and game-changing software partnerships which can forge a new direction fast.
