When Stu Taylor made the decision to quit his seven-figure salary job at UBS in 2012, he had already built a considerable reputation as a force to be reckoned with within the world of finance and FinTech.
However, it was the conviction in his ideas which compelled him to vacate the position, going on to set up FinTech firm: Algomi. Observing a banking world of branch closures, layoffs and public backlashes, Taylor decided to play chance by taking a step back to observe how trading floors were developing across the UK.
As an information-based firm, Algomi grants buy-side firms the ability to receive enough information to choose the right firm. By collecting and analysing trade history and data, the software allows asset managers to direct their orders only to the most reliable banking organisations.
Algomi’s expansion under Taylor has been phenomenal. In under 2 years, this entrepreneur successfully oversaw his FinTech firm grow to a current workforce of over 150, with offices in the United Kingdom, Asia and the United States. For his efforts with Algomi, Stu Taylor has been included in the prestigious Institutional Investor Trading Tech 40 list for three consecutive years.
