Founded by proven innovators, Cassini is now reinventing the OTC pre-trade process and bringing transparency to the full cost of trading.

Experienced Innovators

The founders of Cassini have long experience of building successful businesses in the software and digital arenas.

Forward Thinking

Our approach to software has always started with the question ‘what will be needed next?’. In Cassini and previous companies we have been successful in identifying needs and delivering solutions that only the most forward looking participants in the market had started to consider.

Problem Solvers

Time and again, we have been told “it can’t be done” only to create new ways of applying intelligence to the financial software area. However the market develops we will always be leading the way in finding new solutions.

Customer Support

The Cassini team believe in partnering with our customers, and our previous businesses prove how successful we are at understanding and supporting our client’s goals.

Our Story

Cassini Systems is a new financial technology company with a team based in both New York and London. The founders and key personnel have extensive backgrounds in creating new and innovative financial technology and strong experience serving the asset management, hedge fund and investment banking communities.
