Value Proposition

Bots allows banks to maintain live pricing curves for any of the 10,000+ different issuers in the market, to swap and export pricings and to run advanced analytics on new issue pricing datasets.

We leverage proprietary algorithms to automate the low-value parts of the workflow and free up DCM and Syndicate bankers for more value-added tasks.

Cost & Efficiency Savings

Anyone in the industry will be familiar with the long hours spent by Syndicate and DCM on processing an endless stream of new issue pricing and client updates. Bots cuts this time by an order of magnitude, leading to cost and efficiency savings

New Revenue & Market Share Opportunities

Our data Analytics help banks to identify issuance opportunities faster and pitch for business with more intensity, using less effort than before. This translates to market share increases both from existing and new clients or markets.

Happier Employees & Better Talent Retention

Bots dramatically improves one of the key pain points in DCM and Syndicate Bankers’ day to day work, leading to better job satisfaction, work-life balance and talent retention.

Team

Our two Co-founders have a combined 20+ years of experience in DCM Origination and Syndicate at a top tier investment bank. They realised that the bond origination workflow can be vastly improved with the right technology and partnered up with a Fintech software development expert to turn that vision into a reality.
