Exclusive: iS Prime rebrands to iSAM Securities – a chat with Alexander Lowe
FNG Exclusive Interview… We’re pleased to speak today with iSAM CEO Alexander Lowe on iSAM Securities’ year of transformation.
Since 2014, iSAM Securities has been a market leading provider of bespoke liquidity solutions, trading technology and risk consultancy services across the globe. Within the last year, the brand evolved by combining its iS Prime and iS Risk product lines under the overarching name of iSAM Securities. This was initiated to more closely align iSAM Securities with its parent company, $5bn systematic hedge fund manager, iSAM. In this exclusive interview, Alexander Lowe, Managing Director of iSAM, reveals the motivations behind these strategic changes, and his vision for the group going forward.
FNG: Hi Alexander, and thanks for joining us today. What was the strategic vision behind combining iS Prime and iS Risk under the brand name iSAM Securities?
Alexander: Initially iS Prime and iS Risk were positioned as product lines within the group. However, we have since combined their resources and assets under the brand name iSAM Securities in order to more clearly represent ourselves as a comprehensive destination for liquidity, technology, and prime services. We believe that the best way to ensure consistent results is to have foundations that are simple, effective and scalable. Our new branding helps us to portray that message to the wider community.
FNG: How will these changes affect existing or potential clients going forward?
Alexander: The name change will only build on client experience by further amalgamating the group’s services. Clients can rest assured that they will continue to receive the same exemplary service from our experienced and professional team, who will continue to help them excel in what is an extremely competitive space. iSAM Securities will deliver the same high standards of service as we have always done.
This brand change simply opens the door for us to increase and evolve our products and services under the one brand, while continuing to work on the facilities already accessible to our clients, cementing ourselves as a key partner in the market.
FNG: Looking ahead, can you provide a glimpse into your vision for the growth and success of iSAM Securities in the future?
Alexander: Our vision at iSAM Securities is anchored in dynamic growth and unwavering commitment to our clients and partners. Our products will continue to evolve, with innovations like our recent introduction of the Crypto Margin Facility, enabling clients to deposit digital currencies as margin. With the recent appointment of Sam Johnson, Global Head of Business Development, iSAM Securities, our dedicated team remains at the core of our success.
We are focused on their continual development, and ensuring we can deliver the highest level of expertise to all clients. As the financial industry continues to evolve, iSAM Securities remains at the forefront, delivering innovative solutions that empower clients and redefine financial services.
