Our market is Global Financial Services firms with a focus on asset managers, wealth managers, banks and platforms.
  • A Little Bit of History

    Technical DNA

    Axiom HQ started out in 2013 as a software ‘design and build’ agency that specialised in financial services projects, particularly those with a unique requirement for data and functionality that was far from being available ‘off the shelf’.

    We delivered some innovative projects including the automation of KYC and onboarding processes, forward-ladder modelling and post-trade analytics, commodity-backed Sharia-compliant deposit and loan processing and the automation of various back-office workflows.

    CASS Automation

    In 2014, we developed a prototype product to automate the workflows necessary for the new client asset (CASS) rules in response to the needs of our client, the Kyte Group, then owned by GFI, the global inter-dealer broker.

    This initial foray into the development of our own IP was an immediate success and we had shortly licenced the first version of what would become our ‘Axiom’ product to several leading financial firms, including a global share registrar.

    Angel Funding

    From this early traction, we were able to secure £2.5M of funding from a London-based Angel network which supported the growth of our product set into offerings for SMCR compliance, breach and issue management, third-party oversight, and regulatory checklists. Our integrated platform appealed to the larger financial groups fatigued by dozens of regulatory ‘point solutions’ when what was needed was a single unified view of compliance operations across the enterprise.

    Rapid Growth

    Fast-forward to 2020 and we have established Axiom as one of the foremost offerings in the RegTech space, providing genuine compliance oversight to some of the largest and most complex financial institutions globally.

    Axiom HQ now employs 23 staff, and serves over 40 clients, with recurring revenues over £2M and high double-digit growth year-on-year. Our client list includes leading asset managers, wealth managers, brokers, insurance firms and banks such as Computershare, Cazenove Capital, FNZ, Link Fund Solutions, OSTC, Quilter Cheviot, Santander, True Potential, Rathbones and Royal London.

    Most Important

    Most importantly, we continue to work closely with our clients to identify the most painful aspects of compliance oversight and strive to build-out our platform to improve that governance with increased efficiency and reduced cost.

  • Our Core Values

    Our core values are:

    • Excellence

    • Innovation

    • Decisiveness

    • Resilience

    • Confidence

    • Initiative

    We use these values as a practical tool to help evaluate our own behaviours, the performance of our teams, our service to clients and our return to shareholders.
