Robinhood to buy fintech firm Say Technologies for US$140m
New York-based Say, founded in 2017, has built a communication platform that crowdsources questions from retail investors and allows them to interact with the companies they invest in during annual meetings, earnings calls and other events.
Say also offers shareholders proxy-voting and polling services. Its platform has been used during Tesla’s earnings calls, according to media reports.
