Gold-i Partners with WMC to Accelerate Growth in Japan

“We believe there is a major opportunity for Gold-i in Japan” says Kenichi Kashiwada, CEO of WMC as the Guildford-based financial technology firm provides key products to one of Asia’s most prominent broker solutions resellers

Gold-i has formed a partnership with World Mark Consultants (WMC) – one of Asia’s leading resellers for technology solutions for brokers – to accelerate growth in Japan. As part of the agreement, WMC will focus on client acquisition and will also provide product support in Japanese.

The partnership has been formed to capitalise on the significant interest Gold-i is receiving from Japanese financial institutions for its Crypto Switch, enabling them to maximise opportunities for the increasing demand for cryptocurrency trading. The Gold-i Crypto Switch integrates pricing and direct trading from many of the leading crypto exchanges and Liquidity Providers.

WMC will also focus on Gold-i’s retail FX technology products, in particular, Gold-i’s risk management and business intelligence tool, Visual Edge and the MAM Pro, Gold-i’s advanced post-trade allocation tool for brokers and money managers.

Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i comments, “Our Crypto Switch has opened up substantial opportunities for us in Japan, particularly from some of the largest financial institutions in the region. We have a real opportunity to dominate the Japanese market and therefore needed a premier partner to help us to maximise the market potential.

“I am very confident that the team at WMC can provide the highest levels of local language support to our Japanese clients and can also help us with further new business activity. They have an in-depth understanding of the local market and excellent contacts amongst Japanese banks and brokers. They are ideally placed to help us to seize the market opportunity.”

Kenichi Kashiwada, CEO, WMC adds, “We are excited to partner with Gold-i as we believe their technology is far superior to competitor products. We have a proven track record in working in this industry for the last six years. With products such as the Crypto Switch, Visual Edge and MAM Pro, we believe there is a major opportunity for Gold-i in Japan.”

Gold-i is a world leading FinTech company which develops software in-house to help brokers to make more money, cut costs, reduce risk and differentiate from competitors.
