HONG KONG, 6 November 2019 – Symphony – the leading provider of secure cloud collaboration for global markets – today announced a partnership with Tencent to connect Symphony’s community of 450,000 global markets professionals with the Weixin platform (known as WeChat outside mainland China).
This integration is the first of its kind and enables two major global communities to connect and conduct business via their favorite applications. Symphony users can now interact with Weixin users in China and beyond while meeting critical financial regulatory requirements – including trust barriers, information protection governance, and data sovereignty requirements.
“With over one billion monthly active users, Weixin/WeChat serves consumers and financial services professionals in China and around the world,” said David Gurle, Founder and CEO of Symphony. “Our global markets and private wealth management customers need a solution that can provide companies with a secure and compliant way to connect to the Weixin community. Our partnership brings together our trusted collaboration and workflow platform with Tencent’s Weixin ecosystem.”
