OpenFin, which calls itself the operating system of finance, said Thursday that it had raised $17 million in its Series C fundraising round that was led by Wells Fargo, with participation from Barclays.
Designed to sit one layer above a computer’s native OS, OpenFin is a platform where software applications can be deployed safely, seamlessly, and quickly. It’s used by banks and asset managers to allow traders and portfolio managers to begin using a collection of apps in a way that begins to look and feel like the experience consumers have come to expect from their mobile devices.
“OpenFin is building the roads, bridges and communications infrastructure for financial apps that will allow capital markets to innovate like Silicon Valley,” Matt Harris at VC firm Bain Capital Ventures and an OpenFin board member said in a statement.
OpenFin plans to use its new money to hire more people and expand into new products and geographies. The round brings the total funds raised by OpenFin to $40 million. The company declined to disclose its valuation.
The software already powers 1,000 applications on 200,000 computer workstations across more than 1500 banks and investment managers.
