VISION & MISSION
RISE is a distributed technology company based in London that is led by a group of highly experienced post-trade industry experts. The group builds the most compelling post-trade solutions so clients are ready to embrace the tokenization economy.
Our mission is to optimize post-trade cost, risk, and controls for issuers and investors globally. We build fit-for-purpose solutions for regulated intermediaries, allowing them to establish modernized and distributed infrastructures for traditional asset classes and compliantly integrate emerging crypto asset classes into investment portfolios.

The result is an implementation process which allows our clients to move forward with confidence.
