...the established players in capital markets...
the sell-side, the buy-side, the infrastructure providers are facing a once in a generation change in market structure. Their challenge is how to address it.
...small early stage companies driven by real market needs, constantly innovating and creating potential solutions. These are the new wave of products that can address the myriad problems within financial markets.
Regulation is increasing, the industry is deleveraging, and compliance is becoming ever stricter.
Financial institutions have been slow to adopt new technologies, while vendor management and procurement processes are focused on contracting multi-million dollar enterprise solutions from billion dollar corporations.
In doing so, they often overlook the innovative lower cost and highly scalable solutions offered by newer and more entrepreneurial suppliers.
Organisations know that the answers may lie in FinTech.
Yet the ever-growing hype around the subject has made it more and more difficult to distil the signal from the noise.
Now is the time to cut through the noise and enable these new solutions to deal with these pressing challenges.
Established capital markets players recognise the industry change and challenges, and know they need to embrace innovation.
At Illuminate, we know that innovation alone is not enough.
Innovation is only one part of a three stage process: Innovate; Validate; Adopt.
We are seeing unprecedented innovation in capital markets technology, and we see unprecedented demand for those solutions.
Connecting solutions to problems is imperative to returning capital markets to a state where the many challenges of cost, control, capital and compliance can be addressed.
Illuminate exists to filter the noise of FinTech.
We cross the chasm one step at a time – we are pragmatists, not fantasists.
Our focused approach and partnerships allow us to source the most valuable innovations, bridging the gap between them, our strategic partners and our broader industry network.
This is how the innovators secure real product validation.
With that in place, then, and only then, can we cross the chasm together to achieve adoption.
