The Cornerstone of today has been twelve years in the making. We started small, we aimed big and whilst we’re proud of where we are today, we’ve got even more bold developments to come in the near future.
Cornerstone started out life in 2010 as PlutusFX LTD, which would later become FXPress and then Cornerstone Payment Solutions.
Over time the key people in the business believed that there had to be a better, more efficient way to handle financial foreign exchange transactions. They therefore started the process of building in house a new technology platform for foreign exchange payments.
The company released internally its first version of what has gone on to become today’s Cornerstone Online Account and Back-Office Platform.
Now renamed FXPress Payment Services, the company began to offer the platform as a white label product to other FX companies.
The company begins the next stage of its growth acquiring a number of key competitors and starting the journey to become both an EMI and joining the London Stock Exchange.
Cornerstone FS PLC is launched on the London Stock Exchange on the AIM listing and ticker CSFS.
Though an acqui-hire process we brought aboard the new Asia team.
The Financial Conduct Authority grants us a new license to become an Electronic Money Institution.
Our office in Dubai is opened.
We formally acquire Capital Currencies LTD and bring them into the Cornerstone family.
