What's your approach to technology?
How do you build for integration?
Our ‘API first’ philosophy means that everything we build is designed for deep, two-way integrations – making it easier to plug in to other tools and services that our clients may use.
How do you build for change?
Seccl is built on a simple principle. We know that change is constant – and so we make sure that our technology is immune to it.
Traditionally, platforms introduce new features, functionality and integrations by altering their core code base. Not only is this slow and painful – it also makes them inherently inflexible, as they’re forced to undo all their hard work if circumstances change.
Instead, we’ve chosen to go back to first principles. Our core technology focuses on the essentials that every platform needs to do: to move money, to trade stock, and to do a combination of the two.
All additional functionality and integrations are then built as modules that plug into the core. This means that we can easily adapt to changing requirements, regulations or tax rules, without having to change the underlying code that powers our service.
With no legacy to manage, maintain or retrofit – and with one lean, clean code base, supported by a serverless, cloud- based systems architecture – we’re fast, flexible, scalable and cost-effective.
How do you build for flexibility?
Our functionality has also been built to anticipate the shifting needs of our clients, giving them the flexibility to build their business as they wish.
For example, we’re the only platform technology provider in the market to allow firms to manage advised and direct or execution only clients on a single platform.
Advisers can switch individual clients from D2C to advised – or even choose to keep some of a client’s accounts execution only and the rest advised.
