FundSeeder is a platform designed to find undiscovered trading talent worldwide and connect unknown successful traders with sources of investment capital. [1] The firm was founded in 2015 by three veterans of the trading community: advisor and portfolio manager Emanuel Balarie, Market Wizards author Jack Schwager, and derivatives consultant James Bibbings.[2]

According to Schwager, the site aims to create a centralized website where traders can link their brokerage accounts to create daily, real time verified track records of their performance, and potentially attract capital from investors.[3]

As of October 29, 2018, about 11,000 traders had signed up to FundSeeder, which will use its analytics tools to measure and rate their performance.[4]
