Welcoming new CEO Paul Clifford


Celebrating one year since public launch

STRATxAI is proud to celebrate one year since publicly launching in August 2021.

Our founders set out with an ambitious goal; to remove the barriers to quantitative investing, and make it accessible to everyone. STRATxAI now provides a powerful data driven platform under the hood of an intuitive user experience that enables anyone to manage their own personal investments.

In just one year over 4,000 people have successfully embarked on their own journey as systematic, structured, and strategic investors in the stock market and crypto. This is just the beginning for them and for us, as we learn from them everyday.

As our year 1 comes to a close we bid a fond farewell to founder Shane Monks O'Byrne. His passion, vision and drive brought STRATxAI into being and without him, we would not be here today.

Introducing our new CEO

We are delighted to see Dr. Paul Clifford step up to the role of new CEO. Paul joined the STRATxAI board of advisors earlier this year before taking on the role of Head of Quantitative Strategy. He is well equipped to take the reins as CEO with extensive expertise in trading and quantitative investing.

Paul is supported by co-founder and CFO Conor Naylor and is entrusted by Shane to continue what has been started.

Since first discovering STRATxAI I’ve known that it has the potential to transform the world of investing for everyone.
