London (5th Sept.) – Fathom London, a user experience design agency for Fintech and Capital Markets, and Algomi, the network company providing information-matching solutions for the optimization of fixed income liquidity, have seen market leading growth, in customers, revenue and value in their first four years.

Fathom London have worked with Algomi since their inception, providing world class design thinking and interface design. From initial product launch, through to today’s comprehensive Honeycomb suite, Fathom London has been instrumental in establishing genuine innovation within Algomi’s software. Through a successful collaboration with Algomi, both companies revere the software created as examples of an innovative, experience-led product.

The Algomi Honeycomb-suite provides portfolio managers, execution desks and compliance teams with a distinctive honeycomb-like interface; that displays simply and intuitively the potential trading connections and associated content to the trader. It turns complex trading data into actionable knowledge. The compelling design includes gamification, showing a glimpse of who else is competing, and, with an element of social competition, it improves trader performance. Contextual messaging means that communication surrounding a specific trade are more focused, improving the speed and consumption of communication and information.
