The Investor
Former Pace University student, Kumesh Aroomoogan

We’ve all heard the phrase “every minute counts,” but for institutional investors, it could mean the difference between millions of dollars in losses…or in gains. Previously an equity researcher at a Wall Street bank, Kumesh Aroomoogan ’15 was all too familiar with the relentless monitoring of several news feeds including Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, and Dow Jones on multiple screens at once, looking for actionable information without blinking. 

So he thought, why go to multiple websites when you could just go to one? Enter Accern. 

As co-founder and CEO of Accern, a data design startup that uses artificial intelligence to design predictive analytics solutions from more than one billion websites and premium financial news data feeds, Aroomoogan is able to provide users with quick delivery of actionable stories before they are exposed to the mass media, helping users make quicker and more informed decisions in either their investment or public relations strategies. 

By doing so, Accern has put institutional investors in a unique position to make strategic investment moves before the crowd and significantly minimize risks on their current holdings. Institutional investors who obtain risk intelligence one second earlier than the crowd can save millions. Accern currently powers some of the world’s largest quantitative hedge fund strategies and Fortune 500 companies with comprehensive, predictive news analytics solutions—including Credit Suisse, IBM, Walmart, and Chicago Trading Company (CTC). In addition, it is the leading provider of news analytics on cryptocurrencies in the world, tracking real-time news on the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap and providing flexible delivery solutions to clients.   

In 2014, when he was still a student at Pace, Aroomoogan presented his then new business idea at the 10th annual Pace Pitch Contest. And just last year alone, the company raised more than $3 million in funding.

Prior to Accern, Aroomoogan held positions as an analyst and accountant at corporate environments including Citigroup, SIFMA, and Ford Foundation, and co-founded several entrepreneurial ventures as a Pace student including BrandingScholars, Auxral, and X|Fitness. In 2018, he was named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 as running the only fintech company in the enterprise technology category.
