Privately owned and independent, Asura was established in 2016 and quickly attracted a talented team of highly skilled, CISI qualiﬁed technologists and design experts who now work across our Glasgow, Dundee and London office hubs. Our shared vision is to help propel clients’ businesses forward by implementing simple to use, digital first technology, providing solutions for legacy problems and introducing our real time systems to forge better, more profitable relationships with their customers.
Our focus is on delivering enhanced efficiency throughout the investment lifecycle which drives our ongoing research and development and we are glad to say our clients tell us we are getting it right.
Asura’s Platform provides a suite of software products for banks, asset managers, stock brokers and fintechs to effectively manage their relationships with their clients. Asura’s systems touch every aspect of a client’s lifecycle from on-boarding the client through our Digital On-board suite, to investing the client using our Portfolio Management suite and reporting investment performance to the client through our Client Portal. Asura provides a modular based suite of solutions, these can be bought individually or bundled together. Our cloud native approach means lightweight implementation lead times and associated costs.
Our success is rooted in building a team of talented individuals with diverse backgrounds and an aptitude for achieving exceptional results.
