Xignite, the leading provider of market data cloud solutions for financial services, announced today that it has been named to the AlwaysOn OnFinance Top 100 list of private companies who are defining the future of fintech through their innovative solutions and technologies.
The inaugural list honours 100 companies that have gained global recognition for their products and services in digital wealth, personal finance, banking, capital markets, digital currencies and payments. Xignite was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial board, in collaboration with several global industry experts, for its superior leadership and expertise in driving technological change for financial services through its market data APIs. Offering cloud-based access to real-time and historical financials, Xignite’s platforms enable access to reliable, high-quality market data with utmost efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
“There is a fintech revolution brewing,” said Stephane Dubois, founder and CEO of Xignite. “Our company is honoured to be recognized among those who share our commitment to inspiring and driving innovation and entrepreneurship in fintech. Our products have been designed for simplicity and ease of use, which are both central to enabling the development of cutting-edge tools and solutions for the evolving needs of today’s investors and institutions.”
This year's winners were selected based on a set of five criteria – innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz – and all will be recognized at the AlwaysOn OnFinance annual summit on April 30, 2015 at the NASDAQ OMX office in New York City.
As part of this event, Dubois will participate in a panel titled "Personal Finance Goes Real-Time, Real Data and Real Advice” to explore how emerging technologies are impacting investors’ access to and management of personal wealth. Following the discussion, Dubois will present Xignite’s company and solutions as part of the event’s showcase sessions, which feature CEO-led presentations of the events’ leading companies.
“The growing demand for new solutions and services in fintech has led to significant investment in this space,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “The OnFinance Top 100 list highlights those driving this transformation across financial services, from personal finance and payments to crowdfunding and digital currency, and we are thrilled to recognize Xignite among these private companies for its incredible success and potential for future growth across the globe.”
