Kantox growth and vision
Kantox have grown from the two founders - Philippe Gelis and Toni Rami - to a team of of 50 people and in 2014 grew by 250%. Kantox believe they are on track to achieve the 2nd billion in just a few months time. The growth has been achieved by working with smaller clients, providing excellent service and earning their trust.
As one CFO remarked, “The idea of matching my FX requirement with another corporate’s and then just buying the balance on the wholesale market, is compelling.” Kantox’s vision: “To bring transparency, efficiency and fairness to the financial industry and to society as a whole, ultimately.” is also compelling.
CTMfile take: As Steve Jobs said, “Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in square holes. The ones who see things differently.” And here’s to the financial service disrupters, like Kantox, who want to use new, efficient and fairer solutions, “To invert the traditional finance business model by putting our clients first and profits a distant second.”
