Socure Announces Partnership with Public to Launch Investment Service in the UK

Socure Announces Partnership with Public to Launch Investment Service in the UK

Socure, the leading provider of digital identity verification and fraud solutions, announced its partnership with Public, a New York-based multi-asset investment platform, on its recent launch in the United Kingdom. U.K. members can now invest in over 5,000 U.S-listed equities, benefit from low FX fees*, zero-commission trading during U.S. market hours, and advanced data and analytics. As part of this expansion, Socure provides accurate and inclusive identity verification at account opening for Public’s U.K. members.

A Solid Partnership Based on Shared Values 

As Public scales across markets, the company prioritizes user experience by reducing friction at onboarding while ensuring a trusted environment. Public and Socure share similar missions to make the customer onboarding experience accessible and frictionless. Socure’s radically accurate and inclusive identity verification solutions allow Public to rapidly onboard customers while preventing friction and fraud.

“A positive customer experience – and a safe, smooth onboarding process – is central to Public’s vision of making the public markets for all people,” said Dann Bibas, GM of International at Public.

Powering the frictionless onboarding experience is Socure’s eKYC solution that delivers fast, accurate identity verification experiences that are essential to acquiring new customers and establishing trust when a Public member begins the account opening process. In higher-risk scenarios, part of that onboarding process may require additional validation, where Socure’s Predictive DocV 3.0 provides step-up verification to validate the legitimacy of a government-issued ID. Socure’s DocV 3.0 sets a new bar in accuracy, speed, user experience, and fraud reduction, far outpacing market competitors.

A Seamless Expansion

“Every new market comes with its own sets of opportunities and challenges, and the U.K. is no different,” said Bibas. “We think U.K. customers want to invest in U.S. stocks with fewer costs and more tools at their fingertips. As we grow into new markets, we look forward to learning from our customers and improving Public’s offering accordingly.”

Expanding into the U.K. Public’s partnership with Socure allowed the US-based FinTech to scale into new geographies with an existing partner, minimizing the number of third parties it worked with and building off the strength of a multi-year partnership between Public and Socure in the U.S.

“Public’s mission of making the public markets accessible for all customer segments with full inclusivity aligns with Socure’s relentless work to ensure the widest identity verification coverage for all populations and demographics. Our shared vision is possible because we have built the most accurate and inclusive identity verification system in the market,” said Johnny Ayers, founder and CEO of Socure. “Our entire team is humbled to execute our part in supporting Public’s growth and its core mission. As longtime partners in promoting inclusion in the financial system, we look forward to continuing to support the team as they drive equitable access to investing.”
