Financial technologists that deliver human experiences

We’re a growing team of professionals, developers and innovators from very diverse backgrounds. We’re united by one passion – to overlay technology solutions with human experiences.

Independently operated, wholly led by industry pioneers

Yieldbroker is an independently operated co-operative venture, jointly owned by leading banking participants in the Australian and New Zealand interest rate markets and the largest Exchange.

Current shareholder banks:
ANZ, CBA, Citi, Deutsche, JPMorgan, Macquarie, NAB, RBC, RBS, TD, UBS and Westpac.

In 2014 the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) acquired a 49% share in the business, becoming our 13th institutional shareholder.

As a Board, we set our goals together in consultation, focusing on creating broad benefits for all our users and participants. Our purpose is threefold:

  • Foster liquidity, enhance price transparency and provide clients with efficient deal execution on our platform.

  • Evolve our markets with technological innovation, delivered via human understanding.

  • Develop straight-through-processing (STP) solutions that improve transactional efficiency and reduce operational and compliance costs.

Leadership Team

Our leadership team was formed through the belief that unity is nothing without diversity. We draw on the individual strengths and wide-ranging experience of each member to unify the business, and are committed to creating a workplace without silos.
