Why did we found RISQ?

RISQ was founded to bring a radically new approach to financial software and to revive an industry which seems to have become stuck in regulation and has been limited to marginal operational improvements through the use of simple automation and integration. The current generation of consumers and business people have very different expectations from the previous generation. We are surrounded daily by tools that make our lives easier, such as tablets, smart phones and Google search. Our philosophy is to meet this high expectation of efficiency and effectiveness in the sphere of financial software – to make business as easy, useful, and engaging.

Our core values

Our core values are innovation, simplicity and customer-centricity.


Innovation means to us to build a product that is far superior to everything else in the market by incorporating new technologies native of other industries that deliver game changing improvements. We work with leading universities who help to create technically robust and superior algorithms.


We accept no compromises in our mission to solve difficult problems in the simplest way for our customers. Goethe once said “If I had more time I would have written you a shorter letter”. We want to give our end-user an intuitive experience where nobody needs a user manual.

Customer centricity

Every software vendor will claim this, but almost none is living it. At RISQ we think like our customers and spend endless hours understanding their challenges. We engineer our solutions with our customers’ input. For us, every customer is a customer for life.
