Auditing

Event sourcing provides a single source of truth. Serialized lets you easily rebuild your system state to any point in time to answer any questions regarding what happened.

Both auditing, privacy, security and GDPR are reasons the technology choice for fintech companies is hard. Serialized solves these regulatory requirements by providing deep deletion, encryption and multi-tenancy.

Strong consistency

Money matters. In the finance industry there is no doubt that you need a strongly consistent solution. Using Serialized allows for fast and consistent event storage while allowing downstream services to use eventual consistency via projections or event feed subscriptions to catch up.
