CEO Daniel Sandmeier commented: “Instimatch Global’s momentum has accelerated in the first half of the year, with substantially increased trade intent volumes, a growing client community, broader geographies and senior hires. Our countless meetings with treasurers have reconfirmed that there is great interest in modernising the way that money markets work. We know that for larger institutions operational change takes time and must be carefully planned, so we continue to invest in making onboarding seamless with excellent service and support.”
Founded in 2017 in Switzerland, Instimatch Global is changing the way money market transactions take place, by digitalising traditional voice brokerage and by moving from local to global execution. Its cloud-based network connects borrowers with lenders within the huge unsecured money markets, providing more efficient access, better pricing and the ability to diversify counterparty risk. Its clients include bank treasuries, corporate treasuries, pension funds, insurance companies, asset managers, family offices and municipalities.
