What is Beacon?

Beacon is a financial technology company that delivers a cloud-based, end-to-end development and production platform. With Beacon's open architecture, transparent source code, and automated infrastructure solutions, our clients can build in-house functionality on a platform that has been proven at some of the largest financial institutions in the world. We give financial and quantitative developers the tools they need to be as productive as they can be, so that they can focus on the business rather than plumbing and process. And for business users, we deliver fully integrated applications for analytics, pricing, risk management, and much more.

Investment Banks. Beacon’s precursors include the proprietary platforms at some of the largest and most successful financial institutions in the world: SecDB at Goldman Sachs, Athena at JP Morgan, and Quartz at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Leveraging our experience in building and deploying these platforms, we designed Beacon to provide the right balance of rigorous controls needed in today’s regulatory environment and the flexibility needed to run a dynamic, quantitatively-focused market-making business. Unlike most vendors, who offer “black boxes” that cannot be extended on demand, we give clients access to our source code so that they can respond to business needs quickly in a controlled, collaborative, and scalable environment.
