15 years ago financial.com was founded in Munich. In addition to Munich, the company now has offices in Frankfurt, Aschaffenburg, Zurich and Toronto and employs 85 staff. Almost from the beginning, the company has focused on a partnership with Thomson Reuters and has been delivering bespoke solutions for financial institutions globally. Thanks to this long-standing partnership financial.com maintains both a profound knowledge of the latest trends in the financial technology industry and a deep understanding of Thomson Reuters content. A highly successful arrangement, this co-operation brings together the reliability of a global market leader in financial information with the flexibility of an agile, owner-managed, company.
As part of a lecture series by the deputy major of the city of Munich Josef Schmid, Alexis Eisenhofer of financial.com presented his view of the financial system from the perspective of a market data provider. The financial system is running hot from both a systemic and a technical perspective. Considering a universe of 12 million financial instruments with some examples of more than 100,000 quotes per second in a single instrument (Amazon shares, 7 June 2013), simplification and reduction to essentials is more important than ever. With solutions provided by financial.com, customers can perfectly tailor the information to their business processes.
