Almost a month ago, aixigo was present in London at the FinDEVr, another format of the Finovate Group. In addition to many interesting presentations and dialogues, it was also a nice time in London. Marcus Gründler, Head of Portfolio Management Systems, and Jonas Pommerening, Software Developer, were out and about as a presenter team in London and have shown in a short presentation how to quickly create individual customer solutions with aixigo’s Digital Wealth Management APIs and a workflow engine “off the shelf”. As an example of this served a process that identifies portfolios that fall below a performance threshold and realigns them based on the individual investment guidelines.
In June 2017, aixigo will take part in another event in the Finovate Group series. The FinDEVr will take place on 12th and 13th June 2017 in London. The event will focus on innovative financial and banking technology, software development, and software architecture.
aixigo participated as a presenter in the Finovate Europe this February. Already during the event days there were some interviews with our colleagues. Included was a video interview with Fintech Finance – a magazine for the financial sector which is available in print and can be viewed on TV. Afterwards, there was a special edition in the Fintech Finance magazine on the Finovate event and aixigo was asked anew to for an interview.
Now, a few weeks later, we have written down our impressions of the whole process – from different points of view. All in all we can say, FinovateEurope was an awesome experience and we really enjoyed it! And now, have a look at our developer’s and presenter’s view of aixigo’s project “Finovate Europe 2017”:
Read what David, our participating developer, experienced:
At the beginning of December my manager placed an Amazon echo on my desk. “David, we have the idea to present at the Finovate Europe beginning of February. Can you get Amazon Alexa to talk to the PMS API until then?”.
Exefintech took place in Frankfurt on 03.08.2016. The German counterpart of Finovate in London offered 40 FinTechs from across Europe a platform for interesting panel discussions and networking. Fintech could not miss the almost obligatory pitch for “Best in Show”. The pitch was held in the form of a maximum of three minute presentation. During this time a jury had to be convinced by the (great) core idea – quite challenging!
The substantive focus was broad. From the option to put money without loss (Scalable Capital), real-time streaming of financial data (streamdata.io) to individual credit release on the Internet based on 200 factors (Twisto), everything was represented. Read more
Visiting and showing investify – our digital wealth manager on Finovate Europe 2016 was an impressive experience. In my previous blog post you heard a lot about the conference, the concept and the audience. Meanwhile the video of our presentation is online:
Today I want to celebrate the presenters who all earned my respect. I still do find it extremely challenging to present in front of over 1.000 people. Especially that you have to make it informative and entertaining as well in the very short presenting time. So congratulations from me to all of them. Read more
Digitalization continuously changes business and society. More than one third of all communication in Germany takes place through digital channels. Citizens obtain 41% of all their purchase-related information from digital sources. The wave of digitalization has long ago transformed banking as well. It continues to challenge the top management—more strongly than ever during the past decades.
Traditional branches seem less and less relevant.
Could customers be carrying the branch of the future in their pockets? Will there only be “financial services to go” left at the end of this road?We discuss the present situation in our lecture series “FinTech kidnapped branch?” from several perspectives.
From the perspective of FinTech: How does the entire digital process work?
From the perspective of a seemingly unrelated industry: How does the automotive industry combine digitalization with car dealerships?
From the perspective of the wealth of data generated in each of the channels: Are these used productively at all for any of the channels?
And from the perspective of the good “old” branch: Why is the branch vilified at every turn, but no one is doing anything apart from closing it?!

Seven minutes of fame or mass-speed dating that’s how persado’s Chief Revenue Officer Lawrence Whittle described it to be on stage at FinovateEurope.
To explain, Finovate a leading conference in financial technology innovations, offers every speaker just seven minutes to show their innovation, with no slides or presentation allowed. It’s all about the real thing, the real innovation and the real deal.
Soft-Shake 2015 As part of the open source project LaxarJS, two of our employees, Alexander Wilden and I, were invited to the Soft-Shake conference in Geneva. There we had the opportunity to present the new approach of integrating enterprise applications that aixigo uses to build individual advisory solutions. Here is a summary of the session from the LaxarJS blog:
The Soft-Shake conference was a pleasant event, with both international speakers and numerous representatives of the Swiss banking world in attendance. The range of topics was accordingly diverse: from robotics to software product development. We are already looking forward to getting together again for some white wine and cheese fondue!
