Shield is proud to announce it has been named on The Financial Technologist ‘Most Influential Financial Technology Companies 2020’ list. Nominated by a select judging panel (including EY, Lloyds and Baringa amongst others), this is the second year in a row that Shield has been included on the list, which was unveiled on Friday 28th February.
Upon the announcement, Shield’s CEO and Co-Founder Shiran Weitzman commented, “We are very proud and honoured to be recognised again this year by the esteemed panel. From our launch in 2018, Shield has had the clear aim of shaking up and transforming the RegTech sphere by creating the ultimate automated and intelligent communications compliance platform, one which protects financial firms and their customers by ensuring full adherence to all relevant regulations.”
Since being named in the 2019 list, Shield has had a remarkable year of achievement and growth. The Shield platform added integration with Microsoft Teams (being one of the first compliance platforms to provide full surveillance as well as record and search of Microsoft Teams interactions), launched a permanent London office and moved to a new larger Headquarters in Israel, with an expanded global team that now numbers over 35 professionals.
Shield and its platform has also been recognised by many awards, including wins for the 'Best Data Visualisation Provider' in the Data Management Insight Awards 2019, 'Fintech Innovation: Best Regtech Platform 2019' by Juniper Research’s Future Digital Awards, along with 'Best Financial Compliance Solutions Provider 2019 - Europe' and 'Best European eComms & Trades Compliance Platform' in the Wealth and Finance International FinTech Awards 2019.
Shiran was also personally recognised in the FT Founder’s 50 for 2019.
Shiran added, “We are now looking towards our next stage of growth. These are very exciting times for our business, and we are looking forward to continuing our substantial growth throughout 2020 and into the future.”
