Contineo

Contineo is a global transaction network for structured products. 
We transform the way financial institutions connect and provide unique data insights. 

Contineo is the first industry supported, open messaging network for private banks and wealth management firms to access issuers of structured products. Together we are a community with a shared vision and purpose.

Our innovative solutions improve operations, regulatory and trading processes, we boost business efficiencies, lower costs and reduce errors by streamlining workflow and consolidating all connections to a single access point for multiple firms.

Connectivity at this size creates a unique and proprietary data set. Our subscribers own this data and we believe in helping them create value by providing unique actionable insights, such as event notification for lifecycle management, but also new ways of deriving insights from the market. Our philosophy is to constantly inform our subscribers and to empower them with information they’ve never had access to before.

We believe that the technology should be intuitive, easy to access, and available to all participants. This means creating an open messaging standard in concert with the buy-side and sell-side, and enabling access to all parties, including other certified technology vendors. We are open architecture through and through.

This mission is shared by our current subscribers, who recognize the importance of an open, efficient and transparent network.
