EQI is a financial services and technology company that is made up of internationally recognized experts that have a combined experience of 240 years. The EQI institutional investor is Longitude (Cayman) Ltd. It is a licensed investment management firm, which is part of the Longitude Group.
EQI intends to license its technology to other financial services providers. As a result, they will be able to use EQI for payments and settlements. Thus, customers will only need one banking relationship for all their fiat, crypto, and digital asset needs.
The Current Issues
Today, no financial institution offers a single ecosystem that covers fiat, crypto banking, trading, lending, clearing, and settlement. A client will need to establish separate relationships with exchanges, banks, custodians, lenders, wallets, and vault providers. This set up is complex, insecure, and expensive.
The main issue is fragmentation, where all parties focus on small interests without sharing of common information. This mindset has played in the recent financial crisis that almost destroyed the world. It has also led to some kind of tunnel vision, which has hindered the creation of a singular ecosystem that could streamline all financial services.
The Current Global Market
EQI intends to meet the needs of eight global markets in the financial world. These are:
- The global banking industry worth US$134.1T
- The Custody Services industry worth US$100T
- The Crypto Market worth US$367B
- The settlements and Clearing Market worth US$1.6B
- The Hedge Funds market worth US$3.53T
- The Wallet and cold storage sector worth US$21M
- The P2P lending industry worth US$64B
- The compliance sector worth US$270B
The EQI Solution
