Reports indicate the once high flying Cambridge Analytica is to close down, following the Facebook privacy storm.
SCL Group and its Cambridge Analytica consultancy, which were at the centre of this year’s Facebook privacy row, are closing and starting insolvency proceedings.

Well Cambridge Analytica is shutting down but Emerdata is opening - [uk.businessinsider.com...]


The power players behind Cambridge Analytica have set up a new company — and the daughters of Donald Trump-supporting billionaire Robert Mercer have just joined as directors.

Rebekah and Jennifer Mercer joined Emerdata on March 16, but it is shrouded in mystery.

Alexander Nix, the suspended CEO of Cambridge Analytica, is also a director, as well as other executives from parent firm SCL Group.

Emerdata also lists Johnson Chun Shun Ko, a Chinese executive from Frontier Services Group, the military firm chaired by prominent Trump supporter Erik Prince.
