Our Story

We created Risk Focus in 2004, but our technical and leadership experience goes back much further. Our clients lean on us for our deep domain knowledge, unmatched technology expertise and fine-tuned problem-solving and delivery methodologies. We have deliberately avoided breakneck growth, instead hiring only proven industry experts and curious, thoughtful technologists who are motivated by the variety and scale of the challenges they conquer in our client projects.

Our Services

DevOps & Cloud Infrastructure

The move to cloud computing is a technology imperative that requires transforming both architecture and culture, which is a complex and risky proposition. Large enterprises rely on our experience and maturity to drive this digital transformation successfully.

Solutions for Financial Services

Implementations of strategic application architectures in Capital Markets have a notoriously high failure rate. We combine our strong domain expertise with our technology acumen to deliver feature-focused solutions that had created successful partnerships with our clients. Our solutions deliver measurable business outcomes while reducing the total cost of ownership.

Consolidated Audit Trail (CAT)

We combine deep regulatory, institutional, security, and data strategy experience to offer customized solutions for firms to help them prepare for, implement, and verify compliance to CAT regulations.
