CIRCA5000, the challenger ethical investment platform previously known as Tickr, has adopted Seccl’s technology to power its newly rebranded mobile investment application.
By integrating directly with Seccl’s APIs, the investment platform provides users with simple and affordable access to financial markets, allowing its socially conscious customers to invest within minutes. Using Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), CIRCA5000 provides users (including those with zero experience of investing) with an accessible route to backing globally listed companies that are making positive social and environmental change.
CIRCA5000 is now powering its investment proposition using Seccl’s technology, allowing for a scalable and resilient infrastructure that matches its ambitions as one of the UK’s fastest growing fintechs. The new partnership has already enabled several new features, with its 140,000+ users now having access to daily trading, customisable portfolios, and faster withdrawals.
Matt Latham, Co-founder of CIRCA5000, shared: “I see a lot of parallels between CIRCA5000 and Seccl when it comes to our philosophies – we are both fierce in our pursuit of delivering simple and accessible investment opportunities to ‘ordinary’ investors. This partnership will allow us to continue providing our users with the most convenient way to have a positive impact on the world through investing, all at a scale that matches our growing customer base.
“The quality of Seccl’s team and solution is exactly what we need as we continue to break down barriers to entry at a rapid scale. Owing to its hands-on and dedicated onboarding process, shifting our investors using Seccl’s technology has been seamless.”
Dan Marsh, Head of Customer at Seccl, added: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with a team that, like Seccl, has financial inclusion written in its DNA. Getting to play a part in CIRCA5000’s mission to champion investment in the businesses that enrich people, and the planet has been a huge privilege for us. And with COP26 underway, we couldn’t think of a better time for CIRCA5000 to be taking this next step in its business.
“CIRCA5000 is now one of the UK’s fastest growing fintechs, and we’re so pleased to have been able to transfer its existing book of business across to our API-based custody and investment infrastructure. We did this as part of a bulk re-registration, meaning its assets moved the same day – allowing it to continue operating the seamless processes its users have come to know and expect.”
