Glasgow, 23 July 2019 — Beeks Financial Cloud Group Plc, a cloud computing and connectivity provider for financial markets, is pleased to announce the signing of two additional substantial Tier 1 clients: a global investment management organisation and a global bank.
Beeks will provide the global investment management organisation with managed connectivity to support its fixed income platform. Beeks’ low-latency capabilities and strong network of pre-built connections means it can supply a fully managed setup for the client’s operational requirements. The contract is worth approximately £500,000 over the initial two-year period.
The global bank has contracted with Beeks’ via a partner for the delivery of an initial proof of concept for a fixed income implementation. This proof of concept is revenue generating and is currently live with the bank. It is anticipated to be a pre-cursor to an extensive deployment with the client.
These wins build on the announcement of Beeks’ first Tier 1 customer in December 2018, from within the insurance sector, and add to the Company’s growing portfolio in the Fixed Income asset class.
