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 API specifications, built systems tools and processes for industry-leading investment banks, exchanges, and trading venues. 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 API connectivity teams, create innovative solutions to the problems, and maintain partnerships with some of the biggest names in financial services.

We commit to donating a minimum of 1% of gross revenue to environmental causes each year.

1% for the Planet is a global movement inspiring businesses to support environmental solutions.

We are committed to supporting and promoting a sustainable future and to improving environmental well being in the financial services industry. In addition to our 1% pledge, we actively reduce our carbon footprint by:

  • Using server infrastructure running on 100% renewable energy
  • Minimising business travel and traveling by train where possible

This web page is also 86% cleaner than all websites tested on Website Carbon, and emits only 0.15g of CO2 for each page load.
