The Hearst-owned Fitch Group credit ratings and research subsidiary, has bought New York based GeoQuant, a company which assesses political risk using tech and AI. The company was sold by its founding execs and early stage backers; Fitch Ventures had led its 2019 series A fundraise. The acquired company will complement Fitch’s existing Country Risk & Industry Research product offer within its overall financial data portfolio and the GeoQuant brand will be retained.
