Markit perspective on our products

Using browser-based technologies and a capabilities-oriented modular approach, we can create anticipatory, personalized experiences that make desktop and terminal replacements a thing of the present. We will cover F2 (, an open source foundation and web integration framework, as well as several key Markit capabilities (charting, smart text, personalization) as key building blocks for multi-party, integrated experiences.

Key takeaways:

  • What F2 is, and how it can solve brokerage, wealth management, and banking-related problems
  • The ease with which Amazon-like, personalized experiences for financial services can be created
  • Markit’s capabilities and deep experience with key technologies for financial services, such as charting and super text
