Creating systemic change through leadership.

A deep understanding of the market empowers us to create tools that make real positive change.

Our founders have worked for major exchanges, brokers and software vendors across Europe, Asia, and the U.S. We’ve written FIX specs, and we’ve built custom integration to third-party specs. We’ve seen the inefficiency first-hand and are uniquely positioned to build the innovative solutions needed to make a difference.

We have invested the time to understand the core issues facing onboarding teams, create innovative solutions to the problems, and maintain partnerships with some of the biggest names in financial services.

We don’t sell expensive consultants, and we hate hidden fees. You won’t catch us handing out pens from expensive conference stands. We simply want to help solve your onboarding pain points.

"We treat every client - no matter how big or small - as a trusted, long-term business partner rather than a number on a spreadsheet."

50 years of experience in financial service integration.

Chris Lees

After a successful career in product management for investment banks, brokers, multiple exchanges, and a software vendor, Chris came to the conclusion that the way firms connect with each other was in need of radical change.

Chris is driven to improve the way API integration happens, making it faster, easier, and less painful for everybody.
