Dedication to our clients. 

Deep industry experience.

Beacon Platform was founded by long-term traders and strategists who created trading and risk management platforms at Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. These platforms are the backbone of Big banks, well-funded hedge funds, and others who’ve built these heavyweight black box systems in-house. It takes a vast amount of capital, processing power, access to unlimited market data along months of engineering effort to build these systems. Well, not anymore. Beacon is a FinTech company that offers a cloud-based, end-to-end development, and production platform for financial and quantitative developers
