STARTUP of complete

STARTUP of complete digital solutions custom-designed to correspond to their market presence, investment expertise and investor content and services. At the moment, we’re waiting for our BaFin licensing as a financial portfolio manager. After that we will be able to offer all necessary services from one source. WHAT DO YOUR SERVICES FOR DIGITIZING COM- PANIES INVOLVE? CB: Digitization leads to individualization. The number of possible customer contact-points increases exponentially as a result of digitization; some studies say by roughly 20 times. Elinvar helps its partners take optimal advantage of these opportunities; we also enable them to handle actual performance creation, that is, the asset management itself, in a completely digital manner. In the end, it always comes down to being able to offer the best individual solutions for the end customer. HOW INNOVATIVE ARE YOU IN THIS PROCESS? CB: Very. In our field, we’re constantly working between the forces of regulation and progress. And precisely for this reason, the key to success is to always keep in mind innovative developments that could set a precedent for the future. FOR EXAMPLE? CB: Amazon Echo. We’re currently examining whether this voice service could be applied in the field of asset management communication. WHAT DOES YOUR COM- PANY’S NAME STAND FOR? CB: It’s the alloy a French-Swiss physicist named Guillaume received the Nobel Physics Prize for in 1920. The properties contained in Elinvar allowed it to increase the precision, for example, of watches. It’s an image that fits us perfectly: our features allow us to increase the individual strengths of our partners in the digital world. WHAT ROLE DOES BERLIN PLAY IN THIS? CB: Berlin is a city where many well-educated and innovative thinkers want to live. This is a tremendous advantage for FinTechs, and it complements our proximity to large banks, associations and political decision makers here. For the future development of the city’s Fin- Tech landscape, however, it will be crucial for Germany in general to remain an attractive location. If that is the case, then Berlin will continue to prosper as a FinTech capital in the future. THANK YOU.
