8 out of 11 Investment Banks

How we became trusted partners for 8 out of the top 11 investment banks

Our commitment to cutting-edge Enabling Technology for high-performance trading systems, implemented in investment banks, hedge funds, and exchanges, has not only defined our journey but it has transformed how the world’s largest full-service investment banks operate.

We’re excited to share how our unique approach, deeply rooted in collaboration and learning, has earned us the trust of 8 of the largest 11 investment banks in the world.

1. Transforming Clients into Experts: Our Knowledge Transfer Philosophy

We empower our clients to reliably build custom trading systems for themselves in less time than ever before.

Our knowledge transfer engagement model is designed to provide products for common infrastructure whilst educating and uplifting development teams to develop and support functionalities unique to their business.

By integrating our expertise and collaborative spirit, we ensure clients and their team are proficient in best practices for building and maintaining cutting-edge financial technology systems. See UOB Case Study

Our ultimate goal? Clients succeeding without needing us daily within three months of going into production.

2. Crafting Maintainable High-Performance Applications

We focus on business-driven development, not just for efficiency but also for maintainability. We deeply understand the trade-off between efficiency and maintainability and have developed proven strategies to make applications as intuitive and maintainable as possible.

For example, the diagram below shows Chronicle FIX with consistent latencies well into the 99.99%

We optimise performance where necessary, but always with a keen eye on practicality. Our approach isn’t just about solving problems; it’s about enjoying the journey of innovation and continuous improvement. See StoneX Case Study.

3. World Leading with Open-Source Products

We have a suite of world-class and widely tested open-source products, including Chronicle Queue, that are at the forefront of tackling low-latency and observability challenges in microservices.

These products are downloaded from over 250K different IP addresses monthly* and used in over 80% of banks and major financial institutions globally.

These are more than tools; they reflect our commitment to knowledge sharing and collaboration. Thanks to our open-source beginnings, many of our clients are familiar with the quality of our products before they officially become our partners.

4. Best Practice from Decades of Financial Technology Experience

Each Chronicle product expert has over three decades of experience building trading systems in the finance sector, bringing unmatched depth to the understanding and resolution of complex performance issues.

Based on decades of experience, our experts have built best practices that solve all the hardest problems upfront so that going into production is an anti-climax. See Tier 1 Bank Case Study.

Every project we launch with a client includes lessons learnt from similar challenges across dozens of financial institutions, ensuring we own and convert every issue incurred during projects into successful outcomes.

At Chronicle Software, we’re not merely building state-of-the-art low-latency software; we’re forging enduring relationships and cultivating expertise that stands resilient through time. Each client’s journey with us is a vivid story of shared passion, continuous learning, and genuine enjoyment. Together, we craft experiences that embody excellence and kindness, allowing us to thrive through a collaborative spirit. 

We invite you to join us on this journey as we collectively redefine what’s possible in finance technology.
