SIC Robo: Offering the finest fintech platform in order to make financial systems more effective

thesiliconreview-sidharth-handa-founder-ceo-sic-robo-2018In the present times, the capital market has been profoundly impacted by AI technology applications. They have certainly taken the finance industry and investment services by storm while setting the stage for greater competitiveness among vendors in the finance market. AI applications can enable financial advisors and firms make informed decisions, consider new strategies, and ultimately render outcomes that offer what businesses and clients seek, in the most efficient way. Therefore, AI technology should be rapidly adopted in the wide range of applications offering financial services in order to effectively process information and contribute to a better financial system.

SIC Robo is one such company that aims at assisting investors & traders with real time insights while facilitating a hassle-free and simplistic transaction experience with its Artificial Intelligence powered financial market application, SIC Robo. With a focus on insight rather than information, it segregates and presents everything from news to market information to the user in an easy to understand manner without any requirement of technical deciphering.

Bringing the best-in-class experience to the targeted demographic

SIC Robo, equipped with a conversational interface (chatbot), lets users chat with the AI asking market related questions ranging from simple market information to fundamental and technical analysis. To make transactional experience even simpler, the chatbot supports direct account queries and even placing of orders. SIC believes that technology is the first and foremost enabler of innovation and provides the scale in a cost-effective manner if designed correctly. SIC focuses on developing all customer facing applications in-house thus ensuring a tight integration with its technology platforms. This is unconventional to most financial service companies where technology development is usually outsourced.

“While developing new products inspired by our own customer interactions and market research, we believe that our role as a financial services company should be above and beyond just offering our own products and ideas. Keeping that in mind, we are one of India’s first “Brokerage As API” company allowing fintech entrepreneurs to integrate our broking platform without having to go through the learning curve of compliance and regulations”, the company said. To facilitate this horizontally scalable and tech driven business mode, its tech teams prioritize scale and best-in-class customer experience using a cloud-first approach towards setting up its technology stack. All sensitive data is encrypted at rest and in flight, ensuring complete security to customer’s data.
