We are experienced capital markets and financial technology professionals and we had a vision to deliver the future of trading.

The idea for LedgerEdge originated between our CEO David Nicol and Chairman David Rutter to address what the corporate bond market has been looking for – trading parties and data providers in a secure ecosystem where users can own their data, share their liquidity with intelligence, and engage with others directly, node-to-node. We have the track record you can trust.
