The past year has seen extraordinary conditions for both OneTick and the overall market. Volatility tested economies worldwide, while escalating market volumes pushed capacity for many businesses. 2022 was marked by the need for constant adaptation - to dynamic risks, regulatory requirements, geopolitical events, cyber security, global inflation, and the new realities of cryptocurrency markets. We’re proud that even amidst the turmoil of the past year, OneTick customers continued to sail through turbulence by relying on our platform, products and services.
For the OneTick team, the past year was a period of substantial technical progress and customer success as we continuously prioritized the rapidly evolving and unique needs of our customers. We worked diligently to expand our range of products and services, all with the goal of serving as your long-term partner.
Accelerating Momentum into 2023
Today, OneTick works with more than 150 customers who rely on our solutions and services to deliver value across all asset classes. While we grew existing business with long-standing customers, we also welcomed a substantial number of new clients to our OneTick platform.
In 2022 we undertook projects for customers including a large UK regulator, a regulator in South America, several multi-trillion dollar asset managers, and numerous hedge funds - ranging from small funds all the way to some of the largest hedge funds in the world with 100B+ AUM. In addition, we counted new client wins across commodity trading firms, Canadian pension plans, FX firms, and major banks in Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland (buy-side), and France.
Examples of New Clients and Projects for Existing Clients
Our work enabled clients to meet their most challenging data and analytics requirements. We helped a trillion-dollar asset manager migrate a large-scale real-time analytics system from on-premise to AWS. Additional projects include significantly expanding data and analytics for several hedge funds and asset managers. In Trade Surveillance we delivered powerful capabilities handling 500B+ messages per day for a leading exchange in North America, plus solutions for a Swedish bank, a major Swiss bank, a 50B+ hedge fund, and a Belgian bank to name but a few.
This is just a summary of the value we delivered to clients, both new and existing in 2022. To learn more please contact us for more details.
