Otta's take on FINBOURNE Technology

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Finbourne is an open platform enabling its customers to make better investment decisions. The company sets itself apart by sharing its processes and contributing to open-source software, with its consumer appeal enhanced by its emphasis on openness and transparency.

Finbourne's primary product is LUSID; an open, API-first, and developer-friendly cloud-based investment data platform, that is intended to fundamentally change how investment data is managed. Crucially, LUSID is aimed at everyone in the asset industry, from start-up fund managers to global investment institutions. This universality is one of Finbourne's defining qualities and gives it access to a vast and varied marketplace.

Within its first two years, Finbourne launched its LUSID Design Council - the result of a collaboration with five leading financial institutions - through which the company shares insights with the wider asset community, which has greatly increased its visibility and credibility within the sector. Recent and substantial investment is cited to fund growth plans as Finbourne looks to increase its global footprint, as well as enabling the company to expand beyond investment management into banking and capital markets.

Company values

  • We are open: We’re open because we share our methodologies, processes and contribute to open source software.
  • We instead of I: We appreciate and relish the collective responsibilities of being part of a team; sharing in the glory but also helping when things aren’t going to plan.
  • We are honest and transparent: We work openly and transparently. This means we never attempt to cover up problems or mistakes, and we speak up when we are struggling. Equally important is for people to challenge assumptions and engage in discussion on points we disagree with.
  • We look after ourselves: We expect and encourage our team to focus on their mental and physical well being and not to neglect the non-work side of their life. We’re very proud of the mature and accommodating approach we have to our team’s work life balance.
  • We are continually developing: We firmly believe that continual development and education helps develop an experienced workforce and community, which in turn fuels innovation.
