About us

Kore is an award-winning RegTech. Our mission is to digitise financial product management, reduce regulatory risks, costs and time to market for financial products.

Our values

Committed to excellence

Kore simplifies the complexity of financial products, giving users the clarity and confidence to make more informed decisions.

Trustworthy

We’ll never make a promise we haven’t thought through: if we’ve said it will happen, it will happen.

Inquisitive

We’re always questioning and challenging the status quo, wondering how things could be better, and working out how to make them so.

Transformational

We are transforming the very foundations of how financial services work, moving products away from departmental silos into one centralised home.

OUR APPROACH

We are innovators

We are leading voices in the FinTech innovation movement. We won three times – in 2019, 2021 and 2023 – a competitive grant from the innovation agency of the UK government, Innovate UK, for Kore’s potential “to deliver game-changing and commercially viable R&D innovation that can significantly impact the UK economy”.  This year, our CEO was selected for the Innovate Finance Women in FinTech Powerlist for the third year running, and we were awarded ‘Most Innovative Digital Product Governance SaaS Solution 2021’ by Wealth and Finance International.
