Specialist data analytics company named as finalist in 2016 FStech Awards

Mosaic Smart Data®, a fintech data analytics specialist that enables top-tier banks to effectively monitor client trading behaviour, has been shortlisted for the Fintech Startup of the Year category in the 2016 FStech Awards.

Now in their 16th year, the FStech Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK and EMEA financial services sector. Winning entries will come from financial services institutions and technology suppliers who are leading the way in such areas as social media, customer service, compliance, mobile, online, systems integration, outsourcing and data governance.

Mosaic was founded specifically to address a combination of challenges impacting sell-side banks, including rapidly declining FICC revenue and the migration to, and fragmentation of, electronic trade flows across a multitude of venues.

In response, Mosaic’s MSX™ data analytics platform enables banks to gain control of an abundance of available data to derive actionable intelligence from it. Mosaic Smart Data® provides banks with the tools to harness this data to gain a unique advantage by commanding a more atomic understanding of client trading behaviour.  Crucially, the platform also standardises and aggregates multiple data sets to enhance audit trails and reporting, enabling banks to comply with mounting regulatory requirements.

Matthew Hodgson, CEO and Founder, Mosaic Smart Data, comments: “We are delighted to be recognised for our pioneering work in the field of data analytics. The pace of change in this space is rapid and Mosaic Smart Data is at the cutting edge, giving banks the ability to harness predictive analytics based on historical patterns for the first time.”

The awards are independently judged and the winners will be announced at the FStech Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony on 17 March 2016 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.

About Mosaic Smart Data

Mosaic Smart Data, a forward thinking data analytics vendor, was founded in 2014 by a former Managing Director at Deutsche Bank, Matthew Hodgson, to address an overwhelming combination of challenges affecting sell-side banks in the fixed income market. Mosaic’s MSX™ platform harnesses the abundance of trade data available to banks and translates it into intuitive, real-time data analytics, enabling sales, trading, management and compliance teams to effectively monitor client behaviour in the pursuit of optimized market share and maximized profitability. By investing in R&D, Mosaic’s cutting-edge technology also incorporates predictive analytics based on historical patterns.  This allows banks to answer questions like: Which clients am I anticipating seeing in the market today? Or, what products do I think clients will likely be trading today?


Mosaic’s MSX™ platform is based on aggregation, analytics and prediction with the objective of boosting sell-side productivity, meeting the desire for improved ROI and driving the right business decisions.

The platform works by analysing core metrics to effectively monitor client-trading behaviour and delivers the following benefits to end-users:

  • Increase profitability – By analysing P&L on individual trades, sell-side institutions can more effectively monitor trading cost, improve margins and target profitable clients.
  • Grow market share – By understanding client trading behaviour at a more granular level, banks can identify market share gaps in real time.
  • Meet compliance requirements – Mosaic enables banks to meet trade auditing and reporting requirements through data aggregation and standardisation

The platform also supports automated alerts, which allow sales and trading teams to configure alerts and as a result, interact with their trade flow in real time.

By utilising powerful standardisation, aggregation and analytical tools within an intuitive, user-friendly interface, the MSX™ platform is enabling sell-side players to develop actionable real-time business intelligence.  This allows producers within FICC to operate at their efficiency frontier of opportunity, profit maximization and consequently ROI for their organizations.
