Perché investire?

An active, fundamental approach to investing in companies that stand to benefit from the digitalisation of financial services.

FinTech is the broad term applied to technologies that either enhance existing financial services, or enable the creation of new financial products and services. It serves to both disrupt and sustain innovation.

 

The best of financials and technology

Secular forces: Tech-savvy demographics, digitalization and a growing need for financial inclusion are driving forces behind FinTech’s longevity and potential monetisation. 

Longstanding trends experience: Managed by a team that combines expertise in both financials and technology with global trends experience. 

From trends to strategy: The team translates thoroughly researched trends into a large, liquid and broad investable universe of high quality listed FinTech companies. 

Disciplined analysis: The team’s bottom-up selection is based on in-depth financial track record analysis, with a preference for internally-financed businesses with a solid environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) profile. 

High conviction: A global portfolio of 40-60 companies, well-diversified across established FinTech, enabling Technology and upcoming FinTech.
