Why the name: An ode to our parent company and public marketplaces, FinClear Exchange
Why did the business start: Since its inception, FinClear has raised multiple rounds of external capital and found the back-end process of settling these transactions unsophisticated - taking weeks, prone to errors and involving too many people. After looking around the market for solutions and not finding too much, we decided to do something about it and set about building a digital registry business on a private ledger. This private ledger not only allows companies to manage their register but also oversee primary and secondary capital raises on platform and facilitates atomic settlement for companies interested in periodic liquidity events undertaken in a regulated environment.
