Dedication to our clients. 

Deep industry experience.

In the 90s the edge was to build technology internally to capture market opportunities. In today’s world, financial institutions can leverage the ecosystem of open source, cloud infrastructure as a service, and Beacon's Platform accelerates this transition. Mark Higgins and Kirat Singh built Beacon to apply the lessons they learned from almost 20 years of building trading and risk platforms at investment banks. Mark and Kirat have a goal to create an ecosystem that enables collaboration and innovation across business lines and break down silos. They saw the opportunity to not only help clients unlock the potential of modern technology to companies of all sizes, but also leverage the collective experience of hailing from traditional big organizations. Beacon's Platform sits alongside your existing systems and infrastructure and provided a smooth transition to an integrated platform.
