BornTec Sharpens Business Focus Through Strategic Transaction

Press Release / by: Chris Haworth / May 10,2023

BornTec, a market leader in providing data driven solutions for surveillance, risk, compliance, and regulatory reporting in global markets, has sharpened its business focus with a recently completed divestiture of its colocation and managed hosting business lines to TNS, Inc.


Derek Haworth, CEO and co-founder, heralded a new era for BornTec following the transaction.


“BornTec has been a visionary in capital markets for over 20 years. This transaction marks the continued evolution of the BornTec story as we provide premium at-trade and post-trade data intelligence and automation products and solutions across a broad array of markets and products,” said Haworth.
The restructuring is a continuation of a strategic shift that is driven by BornTec’s focus on helping clients realize the full value of their multi-asset data in real-time with tools and insights that address their most urgent and intractable risk management and compliance requirements.

“Capital markets firms face ever increasing challenges with reporting requirements, particularly with respect to operational resilience, challenges that demand an integrated, real-time view of data. Our CrossCheck platform meets these needs,” Haworth said.
Operational resilience requirements, a primary discussion theme at most sell-side and buy-side organizations, are easily solved through CrossCheck’s low-code automation platform.
“This divestiture will not only sharpen our focus, but provides additional flexibility for further investment and acquisitions, bolstering continued triple-digit growth rate,” said Buck Haworth, CFO and co-founder.
The transaction was completed on March 24, 2023.
