Our story

Chatsworth was founded in 2004 to focus on financial technology, an emerging sector which at the time was hugely underserved relative to its potential with professional, knowledgeable communications.

The common thread through our work has been change and the modernisation of financial markets through technology, and we have seen and worked through it all for the past two decades.

Wholesale financial technology carries trillions of dollars of traded volume, recorded value, settlement and messaging every day.

It is a professional and complex sector, made up of incumbent, legacy technologies managing huge responsibility and service to the markets and regulators, along with innovative challenger firms looking to improve the flow of information and funds through new models and technologies.

Financial technology needed a distinct expertise and tone of voice to deliver for professional B2B clients looking for clarity, cut-through, protection and advocacy.

We grew our own expertise, building a team who understood the markets and the role technology plays, who understood the interplay between buy and sell side, front and back office, banks, brokers and cross-border networks.

Our seed clients were ICAP the interdealer broker which revolutionised electronic trading between institutions across capital markets, and CLS, the FX market’s settlement system.

We worked through the financial crisis with a host of wholesale market clients led the FX industry’s response during its reputational issues in 2013, and subsequent introduction of its code of conduct.

Chatsworth led the narrative for clients around the introduction of API trading, prime brokerage, different payment and settlement models, the advent of machine learning, regtech, insurtech and smart data.

The team has led on the dawn of distributed ledger technology and its potential to enhance and transform legacy processes, including tokenisation, CBDCs and smart contracts.

From the start, Chatsworth has been deeply connected with, and committed to, the financial technology space. We have been fortunate to work with some outstanding people and brands, creating and maintaining amazing technology across the financial ecosystem and we take great pride in outperforming in our work and results for our clients.

We have won numerous awards and accolades over the years and were honoured to be commended as Fintech Advisor of the Year in the 2023 London Fintech Awards by our industry peers.

Our team is focussed on the present and the future of finance, informed by our experience of the past.
