FundSeeder is a broker-agnostic, financial technology company pioneering a trading revolution. It is the world’s first search engine for undiscovered trading talent. FundSeeder will allow skilled traders worldwide who do not have access to investor capital to get their results in front of the global investment community.

A critical component of the FundSeeder platform is that all posted trader returns will be verified directly via links to brokerage firms and not based on data provided by the traders themselves. Thus investors will not only have a tool for discovering trading talent but will also benefit by knowing that all posted results have undergone a verification process.

The company is founded by Jack Schwager, Emanuel Balarie, James Bibbings and a team of industry experts. Balarie, co-founder and CEO, has industry experience that ranges from commodities, stocks and futures to alternative investments. He is also the managing director of Balarie Capital Management and author of Commodities for Every Portfolio. Mr. Schwager –co-founder and head of trader development at FundSeeder – is a well-known fund manager, and industry expert in futures and hedge funds. Schwager is also the best-selling author of the Market Wizards series, which has sold millions of copies worldwide, as well as the Schwager on Futures series. Bibbings brings regulatory and operation experience to the team and is set to serve as the company's COO. He previously founded derivatives consulting firm Turnkey Trading Partners, which was named North America's Best Regulatory Advisory firm last year by Hedgeweek and has worked with hundreds of start-up traders.

To attract a deep pool of talent, FundSeeder is open for all traders regardless of trading background or location. As an added incentive, traders who register will get a chance to be featured in Schwager’s next book Undiscovered Market Wizards, which will feature interviews with great traders discovered through FundSeeder.

On this historical launch to source new trading talent, author Jack Schwager said, “I am excited to be a part of FundSeeder and the Market Wizards Search. Over the past 25 years, I have interviewed countless traders. The exceptional ones have been featured in my Market Wizards books. One thing I have found is that many of the world's best traders are undiscovered. I believe FundSeeder will be instrumental in finding new talented traders.”

FundSeeder’s research and technology team, led by Michael Berman, comprises 6 quants (including four PhDs and two Masters graduates). The team will provide statistically based proprietary tools to the FundSeeder community to assist investors with sourcing emerging managers. One key statistic developed by the team is the RAPA Score™ , a ranking metric that measures certain critical components of the time series of a trader’s returns. FundSeeder has also built highly sophisticated, institutional quality portfolio construction tools that in due course will become available to registered FundSeeder members.

Commenting on the technology team and prospects of FundSeeder, Emanuel Balarie stated, “We feel that we are bringing to the market a solution for both traders and investors. Combining our technology innovation with practical experience in the space will allow us to follow through on our mission to find and cultivate undiscovered trading talent.”

FundSeeder is undoubtedly a game changer. Traders will finally get a platform that will enable them to sidestep barriers to entry, such as exorbitant start-up costs and a lack of connections. It will allow traders to showcase their talent and build a verified track record to attract investor capital. FundSeeder’s goal is to ensure that undiscovered traders who have what it takes to outperform the competition get maximum visibility in the investment world.
