    TipRank, the Fintech company operating from Israel has completed the acquisition of The Fly; the popular news site for the sum of $15 million marking TipRanks  . This deal marks the first successful acquisition from the Israeli company since it was founded in 2012.

    The company which was founded by the duo of Uri Gruenbaum and Gilad Gat runs a stock research platform which makes presents visual and accessible datasets for retail investors.

    Adopting a Natural Language Processing system, TipRanks tracks and measures the presentation of professional analysts using their track record to evaluate and make suggestions to them. The system run by The Fly has identifiable similarities with Tipranks with the likes of Dow Jones and Bloomberg in its clientele register.

    While TipRanks employs 86 people, The Fly which operates from New Jersey engages 28 employees and has been a constant content provider for TipRanks for eight years.
