The client, a pre-revenue fin-tech payments and mobile commerce start-up acquired the technology assets from another firm and wished to bring a new offering to market in the mobile commerce and payments space within a 9 month timeframe. The assets acquired, however, were limited by a number of architectural short-comings.
The client engaged GreySpark to perform financial and product capability analysis of a trading technology vendor that services both buyside and sellside financial institutions.
The client, a US-based multi billion-dollar Private Equity Fund, considered investing in companies that specialise in electronic trading systems across cash equities, listed derivatives and fixed income. The client’s assessment of the investment opportunity was incomplete by having limited knowledge of electronic trading across those asset classes.
Due to the recent cases of unauthorised trading, the client established a new unit with the aim of the early detection of behaviours that are indicative of potential unauthorised trading within the Investment Bank, in order to avoid financial and reputational loses.
The Compliance team of a major Asset Management firm asked GreySpark to help with the enhancement of their trading surveillance capability.
