Previse raises $11million to help get suppliers paid faster

Previse gets suppliers paid, instantly. It’s an exceptional company lead by an exceptional team.

Previse’s artificial intelligence analyses the data of corporate buyers to detect the very few invoices that need manual intervention, so that the rest can be paid instantly. Its platform processes over 100,000 invoices per day – getting critical cash flow to SMEs. This funding round means so much in supporting them on their mission to help small businesses around the world.

Chatsworth is proud to have played a part in Previse’s story – launching and building the brand and buzz around its fantastic team and technology, advising on, and delivering, every aspect of their communications, placing their technology at the forefront of the target audience.

Naturally, having worked so closely with Previse since launch, we’re thrilled that they’ve just recently completed a USD11m funding round led by Reefknot Investments and Mastercard, in addition to their original backing from JP Morgan.

This strategic investment takes funding to date to over USD21.8 million, and will go towards driving product development, recruitment and global-market efforts forward.

Here’s to Previse’s next chapter – making a genuine, positive contribution to the economy by providing SMEs around the world with the cashflow they so desperately need to reach their full potential.

Communicating with employees and clients through a crisis

 

In a crisis, everything should be focused on your people. The future of your firm will be defined by the tone you set.

Technology has given us all the channels we need – it’s what you say and the tone that counts.

Employees and clients make judgments based on how a firm communicates and behaves during challenging times. We saw this in NYC during 9/11 where the most effective firms maintained high levels of visibility.

The Chatsworth team has over 20 years-experience guiding leaders and organisations through benign and challenging market and operating conditions.

We’re all experiencing news and information overload amid the coronavirus outbreak so we’re going to practice what we preach. Here’s a few focused pointers to help guide you in your communications with your colleagues:

  • Internal communication takes absolute precedence
  • Communicate clearly, every day. Be visible whenever possible
  • Speak to and treat your employees like family
  • Be human, positive and supportive
  • Re-energise them with optimism, transparency and shared humanity. That’s real leadership

And finally, if we can give you one take away, it’s this:  People don’t remember everything you said, but they do remember how you made them feel.

LiquidityEdge: from launch onto a $150 million acquisition

Chatsworth is honoured that some of the most interesting and energetic start-ups in the city put their faith in our team when they need to build their brand reputation.

The LiquidityEdge team built an amazing alternative trading model for U.S. Treasuries with an ecosystem that connects a trusted community of primary and regional dealers.

It gives users to choose between one-to-one or many-to-many models to create a bespoke order book from anonymous and/or disclosed streaming executable prices.

Treasuries are a huge financial market and the cornerstone of the global bond universe, with nearly $600 billion of US government debt changing hands each day.

Chatsworth supported the LiquidityEdge team from first inception, advising them on messaging, branding and every aspect of their communications.

We sustained this through launch, growth, and adoption, amplifying the benefits of this alternative trading model and key-value points and milestones in their product development.

We worked closely with the team under CEO, Nichola Hunter, to grow usage and engagement through an integrated global media and marketing campaign, with a pin-point focus on potential users and professional influencers, focusing on the platform’s value and points of differentiation.

The business has been acquired for $150m by MarketAxess, a great business that is really motoring. Great team, great result. Job done.

Smart data analytics from JP Morgan-backed fintech

Trading activity generates huge quantities of raw transaction and pricing data and banks and funds are all looking to extract the value from this, largely untapped, data asset.

The ability to refine this raw data and distil it into meaningful ‘Smart Data’, where value can be extracted in the form of actionable insights can give them a major competitive advantage.

Enter Mosaic Smart Data, an amazing data analytics company, backed and used by JP Morgan to optimise the productivity and profitability of its global fixed income sales and trading division.

Matt Hodgeson and his team at Mosaic have done an extraordinary job building technology to allow financial institutions to unite all of their fixed income, currencies and commodities (FICC) trading data into one powerful, real time viewpoint.

It means each function – from back office and compliance to traders, sales desks and managers – can see exactly what is going on in the FICC business in real time for the first time and at any level of detail, from the macro to the atomic

Mosaic was the first graduate of ‘In-Residence’, a J.P. Morgan programme created last year for technology start-ups looking to commercialise ideas that solve real-world challenges in financial services.

Chatsworth worked with Mosaic from the start, articulating their story, defining their brand and connecting them to their target audience of potential users and influencers.

Mosaic is now gathering real pace and has been voted one of the Fintech Top 50 in the influential rankings of hot start-ups.

Trade finance digitisation to make the world go round

Chatsworth is working with the Contour team to define the next chapter for trade finance through digitisation.

Paper and process driven, the traditional methods of trade finance create significant barriers for global trade growth, adding complexity, cost, and delays to both banks and corporates.

A digitised world of global trade would drive trillions in new global trade flows and extend the benefits to smaller corporates as well as large.

Contour is powered by R3’s leading Corda technology and uses the power of decentralisation to provide common tools and resources to help banks and corporates build a global network for trade, without having access to any transactional data or being a single point of failure.

The first step is to digitise what is one of the oldest and most important trade finance tools – the letter of credit.

Carl, Aaron and the Contour team are building great links across the industry, delivering a next generation solution for an important area of global commerce.

We’re proud to be working with them to tell the Contour story.
