Markets infrastructure and data solutions provider TP ICAP (LON:TCAP) has announced that it has taken a minority stake in the UK FinTech firm, ipushpull.
The Series A investment will be used to expand the ipushpull team, enhance connectivity of the ipushpull platform, and scale up its live data sharing and workflow automation capacity.
