Our management team has the skills and experience to identify, evaluate and consummate a business combination and is positioned to assist businesses we acquire.
QFTA is operated and managed by a team of successful financial technology entrepreneurs. We have founded, built, and monetized FinTech companies including banking, trading, exchange operations, clearing, custody, settlement and other financial services businesses run with financial technology. Members of our management team, through different entities and brand designations, have operated for more than 25 years in highly regulated industries across multiple jurisdictions and have successfully secured approvals to operate de novo banks, correspondent clearing broker dealers, broker dealers, alternative trading systems (“ATSs”), foreign banks, and Electronic Communications Networks, which were considered under Regulation ATS as the “functional equivalent” of a stock exchange.
Beyond our management team’s proven track record of M&A success, we have distinguished ourselves by building successful business models that apply cutting edge technologies to finance and markets. In 2004, matching systems developed and used by companies owned and operated by members of our management team were acknowledged by Trader’s Magazine through a study conducted by Celent Communications as the fastest on Wall Street. The tradition of technological excellence at the management team continues today, manifested through operating financial technology platforms implemented in our respective financial businesses.
Our management team and board members are experienced in mergers and acquisitions (“M&A”), having participated in numerous M&A transactions over the course of our careers. Members of the management team and board have identified, performed extensive diligence, closed upon and integrated acquired companies on behalf of numerous businesses, resulting in a number of successful exits via merger, sale and public offerings. We intend to leverage this experience to seek to acquire a business where we can accelerate and/or improve upon existing business ecosystems and increase value for shareholders.
