Our story

Established in 2012, Fathom London was founded to transform how capital markets work for the user.

In a world where software and SaaS products were improving rapidly, we saw the capital markets industry falling behind.

Outdated legacy systems and frustrating interfaces cause huge inefficiencies. We brought our unique expertise in user experience design to transform clients’ workflows and businesses. Since then we have become market leaders in making data useful for humans.
