Financial Services

Intense competition, complicated regulations and increasingly sophisticated clients demand financial institutions to provide tailored, real-time services. Leading trading and retail banks, brokerages, and research firms rely on Diffusion to deliver. They use it to fuel event data applications that provide superior customer experiences, high performance and significant cost savings.

Commercial Banking

In financial services, data can have a fleeting shelf-life. That’s why Lloyds Bank chose Diffusion to provide real-time currency pricing to commercial banking users.

Lloyds is the UK's largest digital bank and financial services group and needed the ability to provide real-time currency pricing to thousands of commercial banking users in real time, securely and efficiently. They chose Diffusion to power the Lloyds Arena application, which pushes data to Corporate Treasury platforms such as those used for Money Markets and FX dealing applications.

Retail Banking

To meet performance, security and resilience requirements, Consorbank chose Diffusion for their mobile banking application.

Investment Banking

IHS Markit provides investment banks the data needed to make confident decisions and chose Diffusion distribute this data to their client base.

Founded in the 19th Century, IHS Markit serves 50,000 customers, including 80 percent of the Fortune Global 500 and 85 percent of the Fortune U.S. 1000. They needed a way to disaggregate, blend and distribute this data to their growing client base more efficiently. With Diffusion, IHS Markit now scales to greater message volumes, enjoys improved network bandwidth efficiency and brings new services to market faster.

Trading Research and Analysis

Signal Centre faced development issues until they chose Diffusion to power the delivery of their trading platform research and analysis data.
