In the context of the project “Digital David” of the Consorsbank and BNP with aixigo, Mr. Friedrich, CEO Consorsbank and DAB, gave detailed information about the development of the market and told Christian Neuenhaus, Head of Marketing and Communications at aixigo, how the Consorsbank and BNP react to this development.
Neuenhaus: Mr Friedrich, you have once in an interview to the question “How digitalisation changes the relationship with the customer?” responded that customers today are taking a much more active role than before and are, simultaneously, cooperation partners. What is the role of the digital consulting project in this context?
Kai Friedrich, CEO Consorsbank
and DAB, BNP Paribas Group
Kai Friedrich: In our project, we already involve future users of the system during the specification phase. Here, various user tests are carried out with customers in order to be able to react to the customer’s wishes as early as possible.
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.
Digital financial investment and wealth management are currently central underlying themes in the financial market. aixigo has developed a suitable solution for both of these — our high performance portfolio management software via APIs.
To precisely and simply explain this software in just a few seconds, we have produced two short films during recent months. The first part covers the connection between our technology and Amazon Echo; since with the digital portfolio management solution by aixigo, you can not only perform mass calculations for millions of portfolios within a few minutes but can also provide high speed responses for human speech interaction. See here: aixigos digital solution with the amazon Echo!
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.

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?”.

Christian Neuenhaus: Yesterday, after a long and hard journey, investify went online. How does it feel?
Christian Friedlich: It is a ‘we’ve done it’ kind of feeling. The road for us was full of surprises, how difficult it is as a digital asset management service to get a licence for example, or how many processes and things there are to do that require asset management. In the end we are happy of course to have brought this very complex process under our control and to be able to offer a comprehensive service. It was a lot of work and we have learnt a great deal. We are convinced that we can now offer an excellent service to the customer.
Christian Neuenhaus: In the meantime, Robo Advisor has imposed itself en masse on the market. Why will investify have greater success than the existing services? What is different about investify?
Christian Friedrich: investify has a few clear, distinctive features. investify is one of the few digital asset management services that is operating with a licence. Only a quite small group in the market has this privilege. What really differentiates investify, is the emotionalisation and personalisation of the investment that we offer. We don’t offer a standard investment, rather for the first time worldwide the client is in the position to receive a personalised digital asset management service. This is completely new to the market. Read more
During the FinTech wave two years ago, we began an intensive and continuous evaluation of all emerging and existing robo-advisors.
Our study is based on more than 80 robo-advisors. The creators of these robos are FinTechs and banks. The aim of this study was and still is to put the market of online advisory offers under the microscope; and at the same time identify successful companies and understand the reasons for their success. Our focus is globally oriented. Most of the robos under observation come from Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia.
What data was collected?
We conducted initial extensive research into the provided tools and associated websites. We were also concerned with the construction of the tools.
Are questions being asked about risk-bearing capacity, risk-bearing settings, experience and knowledge? If so, to what extent? What is the minimum investment amount? Can I maintain one or even several investment objectives? Read more
