Uphold: Facilitating a Future of Financial Inclusion

Christopher Adjei-Ampofo, CIO & CISO at Uphold, Details how the Firm is Keeping Customers Safe While Offering an ‘Anything-to-Anything’ Trading Experience

Launched in 2015, Uphold offers financial services to the global market and has grown to become a world-renowned force, serving more than 180 countries and offering around 250 assets on its Web 3 platform.

It would not be an exaggeration to say Uphold was one of the very first to offer a true ‘anything-to-anything’ trading experience, enabling customers to trade directly between asset classes and facilitating a future of financial inclusion. 

Ultimately, the firm is providing the infrastructure – licensing, control framework and information security compliance – for anybody building on a blockchain to access the wide range of digital assets being made available.

But in an increasingly saturated market, what exactly makes Uphold unique and able to stay ahead of the competition?

“We have a high-frequency trading engine that sits on top of the connectivity that we have with the 30 underlying exchanges we operate with,” explains Christopher Adjei-Ampofo, who works in a dual role as CIO and CISO at Uphold.

“This allows us to poll the market for the best prices, and institutional customers can move their positions in and out of the market with minimal price slippage.”
