The banking technology provider Planixs was voted #1 in its category of Enterprise Fintech and #22 in the overall ranking across all Financial Services after making BusinessCloud’s shortlist of innovative FinTech firms. Planixs was also the highest-ranked company in Manchester, further enhancing the region’s reputation as a home for innovative and growing technology companies.
The annual ranking highlights the most innovative FinTech companies across the United Kingdom. Each year, Business Cloud – a UK media firm that runs a monthly technology publication - shortlist 250 firms that are voted on and selected by an expert judging panel in order to make the top 100.
This year, the judging panel included Steve Chown, FinTech Accelerator Manager at NatWest; Tribeni Chougule, Head of Change Management at Visa; Gavin Brown, Senior Lecturer in Financial Technology at the University of Liverpool and Julian Wells, Director at Whitecap Consulting, FinTech North & FinTech West.
The accolade follows a successful period for Planixs, with significant customer wins including SIX – the group that operates the infrastructure for the Swiss financial centre, and Banque Internationale à Luxembourg – the oldest bank in Luxembourg. The firm also successfully launched a Partner Programme this year – enabling complementary technology vendors to resell Planixs’ treasury solutions to banking and corporate organisations all over the world.
Founded in 2011, Manchester-based Planixs works with some of the world’s most prominent global financial institutions such as Lloyds Banking Group, Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW), Scotiabank and Zenith Bank amongst many, in providing its market-leading product suite Realiti® - a cloud-based and on premise technology solution suite that delivers real-time intraday cash, collateral and liquidity management capabilities to the financial services industry.
Last year, recognising that smaller banks have similar regulatory needs as larger banks but with budgetary constraints preventing their investment in an enterprise liquidity solution, Planixs launched Realiti® Essentials - an ‘out-of-the-box’, all-inclusive software solution that enables any bank or financial institution of even the smallest size to become regulatory compliant and manage liquidity using the lowest cost solution in the marketplace.
Neville Roberts, founder and CEO at Planixs said, “We are beyond thrilled to be ranked as the number one Enterprise FinTech in the UK. We continually strive to be the leading technology provider to financial services and banking firms, so to be recognised for our efforts is a real honour. We would like to thank everyone that voted for us and the judging panel for selecting us”.
