Steve Cracknell, CEO, Insig AI Plc, said:  "Our listing today will accelerate the development of Insig AI. We believe there is a huge market opportunity as the environment for asset managers and other investment professionals becomes more challenging with limited organic growth, volatile market returns, and pressure on fees. Technology can play a critical role in helping the asset management industry navigate these issues. Many in the asset management industry have hardly begun implementing AI solutions and capitalising on the potential analytical and profitability benefits. Data-rich financial services companies stand to benefit significantly to enhance investing strategies with data insights. We are confident in the future of Insig AI and our ability to deliver sustainable, long-term value to our shareholders."
