StatPro Group plc, (“StatPro”, “the Group”, AIM: SOG), the AIM listed provider of cloud-based portfolio analytics and asset pricing services for the global asset management industry, has appointed Gordon Bloor, as the CEO of one its divisions Source: StatPro.
In 2019, the Group is to be structured into three divisions; Revolution (analytics), Source: StatPro (data services), and Infovest (integration services).
