Katipult Eyes Japan as Future Growth Market

Katipult was one of eight companies selected to exhibit at FIT Tokyo 2017, an annual event organized by The Japan Financial News in Tokyo’s financial district since the year 2000. Over 15,000 attendees from Japan's finance sector will be present to identify FinTech products gaining traction in other key financial hubs.

Katipult has built an international presence since its market entry in 2014, and has developed an engaged and expanding partner ecosystem around the world. The company has teams in North America, Europe, and Asia for local services, as well as a proprietary adaptability software framework for regulatory compliance, asset structures, business model, and localization requirements.

“Tokyo is a very sophisticated financial center, and decision makers in the country are looking for a FinTech solution that is effective, highly tested, and secure. Our experience with creating compliant investment platforms in over 20 regulatory environments is highly sought after intelligence,” said Katipult CEO Brock Murray, who continued, “We will be announcing our expansion plans for our Asia-based team as we are growing our cusotmer base.

Katipult is looking at Tokyo as its second Asian location in which to build a full-time presence in order to grow product revenues for the Japanese market. Because of the size of capital markets, expressed demand for our services, and the number of participants in Tokyo, we view Tokyo as a strategic location for exclusive business development efforts."
