RocketFin Joins the Beacon Developer Network as a Certified Development Partner

Financial services advisory and implementation firm, RocketFin has joined the Beacon Developer Network as a Certified Development Partner, ahead of their demonstration of a proof-of-concept app at the Beacon Developer Conference later this month.  

After several years working alongside and for financial technology company, Beacon, this step cements RocketFin’s relationship with Beacon and is a testament to the value of RocketFin’s contribution to the Beacon community to date. 

RocketFin’s industry clients span most tradeable asset classes, including Commodity and Power, Asset Management, Insurance and Capital Markets trading. Projects have included LIBOR migration, asset/liability management, and VaR performance. 

Recently announced as a co-sponsor of the Beacon Developer Conference, taking place in London on 9th March 2023, RocketFin will demonstrate a proof-of-concept app that helps clients quickly reduce the impact of market data gaps on VaR and Expected Shortfall. This critical regulatory reporting requirement comes into effect in 2024. RocketFin’s app enables users to improve market data coverage, save valuable developer resources, and reduce the onboarding time and costs for new products and portfolios.

Espen Skogen, Managing Director and Co-founder of RocketFin, said, “Our focus has been providing the highest quality engineering solutions to integrate Beacon and to build quantitative risk solutions for our clients.
