Raghav Kapoor

Co-Founder & CEO, Smartkarma Innovations


Raghav is the CEO & Co-Founder at Smartkarma Innovations, a Singapore headquartered fintech venture. Smartkarma is on a bold mission to reinvent research. Regulators everywhere are striving for positive change, and especially so with their attempts at "unbundling" research. Within a short span of time, Smartkarma has become Asia's leading independent marketplace for investment research and data analytics with clients that include some of the world's largest asset managers. Its unique business model is attempting to disrupt a multi-billion dollar market that's fraught with opacity, inefficiency and inherent conflicts of interest. Previously, Raghav has worked in various positions of leadership across major financial institutions and also as an entrepreneur. He graduated with a First Class Honours in Computer Science from Cambridge University, and a Masters in Management Science & Engineering from Stanford University. Raghav loves working with a team of intelligent and creative people who are not afraid to challenge convention and take risk in pursuit of a mission. He believes wholeheartedly in the power of technology to solve complex problems.
