Breaking down the borders of traditional investing. Literally.
We believe that investing shouldn't be restricted to local market opportunites only. So we created an ecosystem for investors to make investments across borders, seamlessly.
At Stockal, we think of ourselves as a digital infrastructure company - building pipes from source markets (where investors reside) to destination markets (where the investing products are from) and vice versa. This includes local compliance facilitation, cross-border money transfer logistics, investing front-end infrastructure, reporting, distribution, and investing education. Headquartered in New York, with its India office in Bangalore, Stockal is backed by investors with pioneering backgrounds in financial services and technology in the United States, UK, India and Singapore.
Today, Stockal’s global investing platform powers some of the largest brokerage firms, wealth management companies, robo-advisors, and fintech platforms in India and the Middle East. These serve thousands of investors on a daily basis, helping them globalize their investments and savings.
Meet the founders
Before starting Stockal, Sitashwa and Vinay built cross-border companies for many years. And having spent time working on these businesses in the US and in Asia, they realized that there were many missing pieces whenever people looked towards global diversification of their financial assets. With global retail wealth growing and people’s global expenses increasing every year, they realized that there was an active need of a platform that helped people save and invest money internationally.
After starting Stockal, initially, in the US, as an investment management platform for retail investors with the intention of democratizing intelligence, they decided to build cross-border bridges for investors. They brought Stockal to Indian audiences looking for international investing options, late 2019, and subsequently expanded to the Middle East in 2020.

It's great that we've taken up a massive tech challenge. Since Stockal is cross-border in DNA, we appreciate unique user-behavior while also handling data, compliance and security.
