About Us

Polixis is a best-in-class RegTech and advisory firm, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. We are proud to have served some of the world’s most demanding companies since 2012, ranging from Tier 1 Global Banks to more localised companies in need of Risk & Compliance solutions. The terms ‘automation’ and ‘disruption’ are not merely marketing concepts for us – this approach has helped us break the dominance of the well-established, traditional vendors in the high-end finance sector.
Data Independence: we are among a handful of players globally that own and operate their own data, which enhances algorithms. This makes us more competitive in terms of cost, technology and long-term independence.
Compliance Advisory Expertise: we deliver world-class human research to complement machine intelligence in cases when machine reasoning is not enough.
Strong on Emerging Markets and Languages: we specialise in data and analysis for hard to access markets.
