our story

Since 1996, corfinancial has provided software products and advisory services to the financial services sector

Over the years our business has evolved, but there has been one constant: the ability to generate ideas. Our goal is to translate complex problems and unique corporate challenges into creative, viable solutions.

Critical to this process is deep domain experience; industry knowledge that helps us to rapidly ‘understand the equation’ that faces your firm and the operational issues that keep you awake at night. This is what gives us the confidence that our solutions will perform the task in hand accurately and on time, every time.

At the heart of everything we do are our core values: integrity, trustworthy, ethical and proactive. We are socially responsible (for example, our energy provider is completely ‘green’) and employ good governance. We have ISO 27001 certification, Microsoft Silver Partner status and have reached the Veracode Verified Standard Level.

We are continually investing in our R&D: anticipating regulatory problems (such as CSDR) and market trends (like ESG) and transforming these challenges into highly efficient tools.

Our achievements include numerous industry awards and a track record of product growth across both geographies and industry sectors.
