Well a month ago, aixigo took part in the Finovate Europe in London and presented its high performance portfolio management system based on APIs : http://blog.aixigo.de/high-performance-api-services-for-portfolio-management.html?lang=en
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?”.
Last week, on the 7 and 8 of February, FinovateEurope 2017 took place at the Old Billingsgate Market Hall in London.
aixigo was there as a presenter and introduced its newly developed high performance API Services for portfolio management. The APIs include all the conceivable, complex functionality required to cover a digital asset management service (e.g. performance measurement, risk monitoring, rebalancing).

Meanwhile, here is a short pre-taste to the content:
On our Website, we introduce the newly developed, high performance API Services for portfolio management. They contain the complete functions to cover every aspects of a digital asset management offer (for example performance measurement, risk monitoring, rebalancing). aixigos API Services can efficiently evaluate millions of portfolios within just a few minutes. To be more specific: 1.000.000 customers can be operated in 5 minutes.
Even exceptionally large portfolios (over 30.000 transactions, a 10-year history) can be analysed in milliseconds. In addition, there is the possibility of live communication between client and deposit. The solution — a standard language service which communicates with the APIs. As a result of this unique combination, requests and graphics related to the deposit can be made available faster than ever before.

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
The second stage of the MiFID is a further “milestone” for financial service providers. Especially in terms of active customer support. This was the reason for us to discuss the consequences and requirements in a group of experts. 14 compliance and MiFID responsible project managers from banks, business consultancies and law firms participated.
Topics of the discussion were, among others, cost reporting, suitability, grants and target market. Almost simultaneously to our discussion meeting, the Federal Ministry of Finance presented the draft report for a second Financial Market Reform Law. This draft is to lead to the implementation of MiFID II. As expected, the Ministry has essentially transferred the delegated legal act into the German law and thereby amends the Securities Trading Act and the relevant byelaws. Due to this, the draft does not contain much new information.
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.
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
Breadboard with sensors for temperature monitoring
Since 1st March 2016 I am working on my final paper for certification as qualified IT specialist system integration. The topic is the “Introduction of server room monitoring based on cost-efficient and self maintainable, preferably open software and hardware”.
I decided to implement the process with Raspberry Pis in order to be able to control the correspondent sensors. These should be integrated in the network and transmit the current temperature data of our server rooms and the relevant air conditioners to out IT department. Ideally I will also embed humidity sensors, which will, a big surprise, measure the air humidity in the rooms.
from left to right: temperature sensor, temperature/air humidity sensor
The current plan is that there will be two Raspberry Pis in every server room, which will manage an until now not determined number of sensors. These altoghether four Pis will be placed reasonably throughout the server room in order to guarantee the as much as possible all-over monitoring. A fifth Pi should be provided with an 8 inch display and will graphically illustrate the progression of the temperature at our office.
We will use the DS18B20 as temperature sensors and DHT11 as temperature/air humidity sensor. In case of one of the sensors registering a deviation, which was determined beforehand by us, our department will be informed by e-mail right away so as to be able to react quickly to the matter.
I will turn in the paper probably around 15th April 2016, afterwards the project is going into production. Here at aixigo new innovative ideas are welcomed anytime, especially if they improve the monitoring of the already existing infrastructure. It will centralize the information management and shorten the processing time. This was a very exciting and challenging project with a lot of hadicraft work both in the hardware and software unit. I definitely enjoyed it very much and am glad that is of a modular structure so that the colleagues will be able to maintain and expand it.
