ASPone and the National Autistic Society announce 2015 IFS Golf Day

 

 

 

ASPone are very pleased to announce the return of last year’s hugely successful International Financial Services Golf Day, taking place on the 1st of May at the London Club in support of the National Autistic Society.

 

Last year’s event was a great day for all, raising awareness for an excellent cause, providing great networking opportunities and most importantly contributing in no small way to the £50,000 overall total raised for the National Autistic Society by ASPone.

We received some great feedback from attendees, complimenting everything from the speakers to the overall organization of the event.

 

This year looks set to be even bigger, and we’re thrilled to once again have the chance to help such a worthy cause. One of our guiding corporate principles is our ambition to be a caring and socially responsible company, and we think working with the National Autistic Society is the perfect way to fulfill this.

 

ASPone and Earthport in technology alliance

ASPone Ltd, provider of financial networks, trading applications and solutions for the financial markets are pleased to announce a partnership with Earthport plc. that will see us develop a range of transaction systems to support Earthport’s expanding portfolio of payments services.

This reinforcement of our customer-supplier relationship sees us entering into an agreement whereby Earthport will procure a 45% stake in ASPone in four years’ time. We see this as a strong vote of confidence in our long acknowledged technical capabilities which derive from our teams in Europe and Asia. This new stage in an established relationship will see us developing new strategic capabilities, building on the momentum that Earthport has created with several new blue-chip client signings in recent months. In tandem Earthport will be seeking to leverage our sophisticated and highly scalable development capabilities to better serve its existing and future clients, and continue to enhance the functionality of its leading payments platform.

The existing ASPone network and trading system business lines will continue to operate alongside the burgeoning payments systems business, providing a balanced portfolio of technology services for a range of financial markets.

Patrick McGrath, CEO ASPone said:

“This addition of Earthport plc, a major player in the cross border payments market to the existing list of premium financial institutions who partner with ASPone networks and systems for their business is a seal of approval for our business vision. It is especially encouraging that Earthport saw fit to evolve their position as a client to become a shareholder in ASPone.”

 

Hank Uberoi, CEO Earthport, said

“Our reinforced partnership with ASPone will allow us to leverage their technology assets more extensively to better serve our customers and to achieve scale at pace. In addition, we believe that the financial terms secured provide a prudent level of protection whilst also reflecting our belief in the strength of the ASPone team and offering. We have had a strong working relationship with ASPone for some time; going forward, we look forward to further solidifying this relationship and working more closely together to service our global clients and, in some cases, accelerate their ability to adopt our solution.”
