Our mission

Propelling your dreams forward with ambition and excellence

Our team gets a kick out of making data work for you, whether you're buy-side or sell-side. With every goal you reach and every record you break, we cheer and shout, standing by your side, never failing to look ahead.

A positive mindset - that's what got us this far. Thinking of doing something deemed impossible? Once you realize nothing is impossible, you are free to dream. We’ll help you plan and thrive. Because at Varrlyn we believe that if something is achievable, we can - and will - achieve it together.

Get ready to improve your cost efficiency, simplify your application architecture, optimize the time to market, increase straight-through processing – whilst meeting all regulatory requirements. You do the deal, we do the project.

Our promise

Taming your technical tangles

When did the dealing room change from a pressure cooker filled with colour and noise – “Buy! Buy!” “Sell! Sell!” – to row after row of computer screens? Electronic trading just kind of… happened. The world of trading accepted a few bits here, a few bytes there – and then, all of a sudden, things got tangled.

At Varrlyn, we take processes apart. We clarify, design and implement the most intricate financial IT projects; as a complete custom-designed package, or in parts. If the tangle turns out too wild to tame, we "simply" build a new IT landscape from scratch.

Our aim is to make our clients’ systems run without a hitch. We help financial institutions with system implementations and provide some serious application support, concentrating on the way they process transactions and deploy reporting applications.
