£3 million funding for real estate analytics platform


REalyse, a real estate data and analytics platform used by companies such as Legal & General and Quintain, has secured £3 million for its series A fund raise.

The round was led by Anthemis Group, a venture capital firm; and XTX Ventures, the venture capital affiliate of XTX Markets, a global electronic liquidity provider.

Set up in 2016, REalyse’s vision is to use actionable analytics enabling residential property professionals to determine where, when and what to build. The company’s big data platform is disrupting the market by making access to data far quicker, cheaper and more efficient than the current focus on having up to a dozen databases running at once.

The automated integration of hundreds of UK-wide datasets going back 20 years, allows users to reach more accurate conclusions, up to 10 times faster than they could before.

Realyse has a significant portfolio of major corporate clients who use its institutional grade data systems; including Legal and General, Cushman and Wakefield, Quintain and Colliers International.

This is the third round of investment for REalyse in just two and a half years. The company’s prior round of investment came in 2017 from a combination of institutional and private investors, including Anthemis Group, Roundhill Capital and PiLabs.

Gavriel Merkado, founder and CEO of REalyse, said: “Property has been crying out for the same transformation seen across insurance and financial services, and by applying cutting edge quantitative analytics technology, we plan to do the same for development and investment management.

“We want to offer the clarity and transparency that UK real estate is known for by making access to data easier and more intutitive. We are extremely grateful to our clients and investors for their continuing support in helping us continue on our mission.”

Iason Nikolakis, managing director at Anthemis Group, said: “Anthemis sees significant growth potential in REalyse. We are believers in the team’s strategy and are excited about the unique, data-driven product they are bringing to the real estate industry.”
