Public.com has acquired HyperCharts, a data visualization platform that provides fundamental financial and business metrics for publicly traded companies, to provide investors with more contextually relevant information.

HyperCharts was founded by Galileo Russell, an early Public.com advisor, and Moe Salih in 2019 to provide data summaries and visualizations for hundreds of the most popular publicly traded companies.

The platform presents financial metrics such as revenue growth, net income, and operating expenses, as well as other applicable signals relevant to investors, such as subscriber growth and streaming subscriptions.

Galileo Russell, co-founder of HyperCharts, commented, “A chart is worth 1,000 numbers. We created HyperCharts to make financial analysis easy, fun, and accessible to the masses by turning complex SEC filings into simple, interactive charts. I am thrilled to partner with Public to extend the capabilities of our financial visualization software. HyperCharts’ mission to democratize financial markets and education for all couldn’t be more aligned with what Public does.

The brokerage encourages community collaboration with contextually relevant information and unique features to discover new ideas, like in-app audio broadcasts and Q&As for city hall leaders. HyperCharts’ clean and simple data visualizations will soon provide another layer of education in a format that resonates with modern retail investors.

According to Public.com’s statement, modern retail investors say their primary source of information about their investments and the markets in general is their investment app, ahead of traditional trade media and popular social media platforms. “With our acquisition of HyperCharts, we look forward to providing even more ways to learn and grow as an investor in the same place you invest.”

In 2021, fintech saw its community grow by more than 700%. At the same time, its workforce has tripled to ensure that the organization matures at the same pace, providing the best product experience for its users.

As part of this effort, Public.com has hired two industry leaders who can bring the experience and expertise required to take the broker to the next level as it competes with market leaders such than Robinhood and E*TRADE.

Public.com is a neo-broker in the United States looking to replace Robinhood as the fastest growing online trading platform in the country.

The broker recently criticized Robinhood’s PFOF model and explained why its way of getting quality execution is better for clients.
