About Us

Founded in late 2014, Huddlestock is based in London and in Oslo. The platform allows everyone to invest in the same strategies that Hedge Funds trade in. Our diverse team consists of entrepreneurs, technologists, developers and finance professionals, who all bring considerable expertise and experience to Huddlestock.

Huddlestock was launched in beta by the Crown Prince of Norway, HRH Haakon, in Spring 2017 and then opened to everyone in summer the same year. We have been acknowledged by CB insights as one of the game-changers in wealth management world-wide. In Fall 2017 we received “Best Fintech of the Year 2017” in Scandinavia by the Nordic Startup Awards.
