Simudyne Closes $6M Series A Funding Round with Plans to Expand

Share article

Simulation technology specialist Simudyne has closed a $6 million Series A fundraising led by Barclays. The new funds will help Simudyne to continue to interact with the financial services sector while expanding the applications of its enterprise-ready software beyond bank stress testing, financial risk and contagion management.

Simudyne’s solutions assist organisations to harness the power of agent-based modelling, AI, and machine learning to test drive their decisions and drive growth. Leveraging agent-based simulation, the firm’s technology enables clients to simulate millions of scenarios to test drive their decisions and fail without consequences in order to gain insight.

Already in use at Barclays and in other large financial institutions, the firm claims to have seen a 600% increase in revenue in 2018, following the acquisition of new banking clients. It plans to use the funding to expand its team as it seeks to enter new areas such as market execution, anti-money laundering and fraud.

“We expect simulation will be a multi-billion-dollar market within the next five years and we will be positioned to capitalise on that opportunity,” says CEO Justin Lyon. “With simulation, traders can generate effective synthetic trade data, account for adaptive trading strategies, optimise their algorithms against buy-side policies, test against stressed scenarios, and demonstrate transparency and proper governance to regulators.”

Graphene Ventures and Gauss Ventures joined Barclays in the funding round.
