Through our work with leaders in their fields, both partners and clients, we have put a lot of scrutiny on our product development and our testing practices. This means that every time an update to our product is made, over 1,000 tests are run through on various environments to ensure we catch conflicts as soon as possible.
Our clients and partners have been fantastically supportive and through a close dialog we have developed robust and sophisticated offering sets such as secondary market support, loan book and repayment support and analytics in various jurisdictions around the world.
While through long term investments, we’ve been able to establish a robust core of our platform product, we continue to heavily invest in security as well as middle layer products such as web hooks that pull entire arrays of interlinked functions such as compliance lookups or onboarding workflows. Through this work, we expect to make the deployment of fintech products more efficient, but also more sophisticated, secure and compliant.
Partnerships, such as the one with the Government of Estonia and their e-Residency program allow us to be on the cutting edge of fintech and e.g. offer access to the EU market through a virtualized portal rather than the arduous older channels. Through the network of over 80 partners around the world, such as big four consultancies, compliance experts (such as KYC and AML service providers), legal pioneers and fintech leaders in their fields, we are proud to truly be creating an ecosystem around the world.
Through our offices in San Francisco at 1 Market Street, in midtown New York, London’s Moorgate and our office in Central Hong Kong, our focused, international team continues to engage in a constant dialog with the fintech market, from our clients and partners, to policy makers and those affected by the shift.
We’re humbled to be trusted by significant incumbent organizations with being part of modernizing the way they serve their existing and future clients, as well as where they seek growth and value from positioning in a modern and growing market. We are proud to be supporting cutting edge initiatives such as Convergence backed by prominent institutions such as the World Economic Forum, existing leaders in their own sectors such as Galliard Homes with the Property Club and novel innovations in areas such as peer to peer lending exemplified for example by Credit Peers. All our clients are modernizing a specific market segment and providing a fluid service to the end client.
We understand the cusp of change and often put ourselves in our client shoes, to imagine impact of a technologically savvy younger generation that no longer accepts the old ways of doing things, an often aging population structure and urbanization as well as globalization in each country around the world. Imagining the future and further, investing in creating it is no trivial task, yet it's one we continue to be proud to be part of as we support our clients and partners.
