Over the last quarter century, the financial services industry has devoted significant time, energy, and resources to digitizing its processes for trading, clearing and settlement.
Yet, the operating model for handling exceptions is fragmented, outdated and frustratingly inadequate. To make it worse, exceptions are typically handled via emailing, faxing and “snail mailing” of documents – resulting in human error, low margins, inefficiencies, and overstaffing.
At Kingfield, we set our sights on creating a standardized ecosystem that brings back-office operations, namely exception resolution, into the 21st century.
By focusing on one problem at a time and collaborating closely with our clients, we’re stringing together humble wins to build a better, more efficient, fully digital back-office.
With a team of seasoned leadership across financial services, Kingfield’s executive team is motivated to push harder, reach higher, and never lose sight of their corporate mission: To build a world-class, next-generation ecosystem for the global financial marketplace.
