TAKING DOWN THE BARRIERS TO ENTRY

BENEFITS FROM COOPERATION DUE TO HIGH BARRIERS TO ENTRY FOR FINTECHS AND AN INNOVATION SLACK AT FINANCIAL SERVICES FIRMS

We develop our start-ups in a cooperative approach with established financial services firms creating a win/win situation for both parties.

Leveraging competitive advantage

Traditional financial services firms do not lack challenges: they struggle with an ever constricting regulatory environment, technological development, decreasing profitability, loss of market share. The list goes on.

FinTechs are in the unique position to work with technology unencumbered by legacy systems, drive innovation and growth within an entrepreneurial environment. But they face difficulties to develop scale, create reputation, ensure regulatory compliance and deal with a high complexity of products and markets.

Our vision is to find a cooperative framework between our FinTechs and established players in which they can leverage each others competitive advantages and reach their respective goals quicker.

A cooperative approach to company building

FinTechs need to deal with a high level of complexity already at an early stage in order to test their fundamental hypothesis about their product and strategy. Founders need absolute clarity on the problem they are trying to solve and the context in which they need to solve it.

We help our founders through this stage by introducing them to established players with relevant experience or desire to jointly develop the respective product or service.

Our extensive asset and sector experience combined with our strong network of financial services firms, regulators and advisers enables us to quickly validate, help pivoting or set up mutually beneficial collaborative working structures.
