About The Company

Our multinational team of Europeans and Filipinos come from investment banking, consulting, and technology backgrounds.
We consider ourselves more "Startup" than "Financial Services Company". We have worked in both startup and corporate environments in the past and think there's a lot to be gained from introducing the best aspects of startup mentality into an industry which has been historically very corporate.

We're young and driven. The average age of our company is under 30. We are excited by coming to work and relish the challenge of getting better every day.
Great people believe in us. We raised some money in 2015 from a stellar group of investors including 500Startups Asia.
