SWIFT announced that it will be opening its Know Your Customer platform, the KYC Registry, to corporates.

In a first step, from Q4 2019, all 2,000 SWIFT-connected corporate groups will be able to join The KYC Registry, and use it to upload, maintain and share their KYC information with their banks.

Enabling corporates to join The KYC Registry will be transformational both for multi-banked corporates and for their banks, who already benefit from access to the 5,100 bank strong registry and can see the huge advantage of adding corporates.

Major corporations use a range of banks in different jurisdictions around the world, with whom they need to exchange information to enable KYC checks. Data is held in different places and is often incomplete or out of date, making the process time consuming for both corporates and their banks.

The absence of uniformity, differing jurisdictional requirements and the lack of standardised data across the corporate KYC space increases these inefficiencies further. The KYC Registry is an online portal for financial institutions to exchange institutional KYC Due Diligence information.

The platform allows banks to share KYC data and documents with their correspondents in a secure, standardised and controlled way, as well to get access to their correspondents’ complete and validated KYC profiles, resulting in efficiency and cost savings in KYC processes.

The introduction of corporates will enable corporates to upload standard information to The KYC Registry as well as to exchange other KYC-relevant documents that are requested by their banks, thereby ensuring the highest level of usability of the platform. Banks will benefit by having access to corporates’ information through the same central repository they use for their correspondent KYC checks, thereby enabling efficient data sharing through a secure central utility, eliminating duplication and inefficiency.

Through Anthemis Baloise Strategic Ventures, Baloise is investing in Stable, a London-based startup.

Stable has created an index insurance product for food and farming businesses around the world that automatically reimburses lost income caused by volatile prices. There are 500 million farmers worldwide and price volatility is one of the biggest problems they face. Agricultural commodities are often volatile, both on the demand and on the supply side, but current financial tools that could help are often complex, expensive and risky for smaller businesses.

Stable’s data science platform enables the company to democratise access to ‘hedging’ for businesses of every sector and every size. The scalable platform is already working with 50 commodity indices that range from coffee to cow’s milk and in over 10 countries. In contrast to traditional insurance, the highly automated index-based solution means the business owner can get a quote in less than 2 minutes and any claims due are paid in less than 48 hours.

With an insurance policy from Stable, farmers and food manufacturers can insure a defined amount of a product over a defined period for a specified price. For example, a farmer chooses a policy that protects 100 tonnes of wheat from March to November 2019 from an average price falling below £150/t. If the average index price for the agreed period is below the agreed value of £150, the farmer receives an automatic payout. If the market price is above the originally agreed price, there is no payout.

The investment in Stable is a further investment by Baloise via Anthemis Baloise Strategic Ventures. The Baloise Group entered into an investment partnership with the investment and consulting firm Anthemis Group in 2017. Baloise is making CHF 50 million available for investing in European and US-based start-ups that have the potential to advance Baloise’s digital development.

Kryptowährungen kommen immer mehr im Alltag der österreichischen Bevölkerung an.

Das aktuellste Beispiel für diese Entwicklung ist die Kooperation des marktältesten Betreibers von Bitcoin-Automaten in Österreich, der Kurant GmbH, und der Österreichischen Post. Die beiden Unternehmen starteten Anfang 2019 ein Pilotprojekt, das es Postkunden möglich macht, in zunächst drei Filialen Bitcoin-Automaten vorzufinden.

Diese Automaten sollen es jedem Interessierten möglich machen, über eine leicht bedienbare Oberfläche Bitcoin sowie andere Kryptowährungen sicher und seriös zu kaufen und zu
verkaufen.

Stefan Grill

Stefan Grill

„Die Kooperation mit der Österreichischen Post ist nicht nur ein grosser unternehmerischer Schritt für uns, sondern auch ein Zeichen für das Vertrauen in die Seriosität der Kurant GmbH, sowie in die Zukunft von Kryptowährungen“,

kommentiert Stefan Grill, CEO der Kurant GmbH, die neue Zusammenarbeit. Insbesondere die bereits etablierte Verlässlichkeit der beiden Unternehmen stellt einen Vorteil für die Kunden dar. Die Kooperation stellt die sichere und seriöse Abwicklung der Transaktionen sicher und damit auch eine größtmögliche Zufriedenheit der Käufer und Verkäufer.

Die Kurant GmbH entstand 2017 als Ausgliederung der im Jahr 2014 gestarteten Automaten- Aktivitäten der Coinfinity GmbH und hat ihren Hauptsitz in Wien. Kurant betreibt Bitcoin-Automaten, die es den Kunden ermöglichen, Kryptowährungen zu kaufen oder auch zu verkaufen. Damit wird angeboten, dass jeder Interessent komfortabel und schnell am Kryptowährungsmarkt teilnehmen kann, ohne umfangreiche Vorkenntnisse zu besitzen. Zu den Versprechen des Unternehmens gehören neben uneingeschränkter Seriosität und Transparenz auch ein telefonisch erreichbarer und speziell geschulter Kundenservice.

Kurant Automat Postfiliale

„Mit der Kurant GmbH zusammenzuarbeiten hatte für unser Unternehmen zweierlei Gründe. Zum einen war es uns ausgesprochen wichtig, einen Partner zu finden, der schon lange erfolgreich am Markt etabliert ist. Zum anderen ist bei einem solch innovativen Thema wichtig, jemanden an seiner Seite zu wissen, der bei seinen bisherigen Kunden als seriös und glaubwürdig gilt.“,

erklärt Stefan Nemeth, Leitung Produktmanagement Filialen und Produktmanagement SB, über die Motivation der Österreichischen Post, mit der Kurant GmbH zusammenzuarbeiten.

With its fully digital car subscription service, Carvolution reshapes car ownership and access, focusing on flexibility and convenience. The round was led by Redalpine and joined by renowned Swiss business angels.

Out of Bannwil, Switzerland, Carvolution is redesigning mobility and thus challenging traditional concepts such as car purchase and leasing. Similar to what other industries have experienced before, the demand for convenience and flexibility also leads the mobility industry away from traditional ownership towards mobility as a service.

Carvolution’s customers simply select their car online, have it delivered to their doorstep and pay a fixed monthly price that includes all costs except refueling. Their digitally-powered one-stop shop streamlines everything from insurance to maintenance: saving customers time and money while enabling efficiencies for all connected parties.

Carvolution is a pioneer in this growing market.

Peter Niederhauser

“We are convinced that after the music industry, telecommunications and other sectors, the automotive market is ready for a business model that replaces traditional car purchase or leasing,”

says Peter Niederhauser, founding partner of Redalpine.

Carvolution was founded in 2018. The team around the founders Léa Miggiano, Adrian Boss, Christian Räber, Luis Wittwer and Bernhard Drüner currently counts eleven employees.

We are very excited to empower Carvolution’s mission and are looking forward to working with the team to bring the car flat rate to the mass market.

Das Zürcher InsurTech Start-up vlot geht neue Wege bei den Lebensversicherungen und vereinfacht den Zugang zum Schweizer Vorsorgesystem.

Vlot verfolgt einen ganzheitlichen Ansatz und berücksichtigt bereits bestehende Risiko-Leistungen (für Tod und Invalidität) aus der 1., 2. und der 3. Säule. Verträge lassen sich dynamisch anpassen, sobald sich die Lebenssituation der versicherten Person massgeblich ändert. Dazu betreibt vlot eine verständliche und einfach zu bedienende Online-Plattform. Die Verträge und die Leistungen laufen über die elipsLife AG, eine Tochter der Swiss Re Gruppe.

vlotMit vlot werden Lebensversicherungen verständlich, individuell und dynamisch. Über eine Online Plattform kann die eigene Vorsorgesituation anschaulich, kostenlos und anonym analysiert werden. Vlot berechnet dabei, welche Leistungen aus der 1., 2. und, falls vorhanden, aus der 3. Säule einer Person und ihrer Familie bei Tod oder Invalidität zustehen.

Vlot zeigt mögliche Lücken auf und unterbreitet massgeschneiderte Absicherungs-Vorschläge, die der betroffenen Person oder deren Hinterbliebenen den Erhalt eines bestimmten Lebensstandards ermöglichen. Einmal abgeschlossene Lebensversicherungen lassen sich ferner flexibel anpassen, sobald sich die Lebensumstände ändern.

Ganzheitlich und dynamisch

Vlot berechnet die Prämien für Lebensversicherungen individuell und dynamisch, d.h. entsprechend der jeweiligen Lebenssituation: Wer jung ist zahlt weniger Prämie (u.a. geringeres Sterbe- / Invaliditätsrisiko) und wer etwas älter ist braucht weniger Deckung (u.a. grössere Absicherung aus AHV und der beruflichen Vorsorge). Die sonst über eine längere Vertragsdauer starren Prämien entfallen. Zudem verzichtet vlot auf die in der Branche üblichen Vertriebsprovisionen.

Mit vlot werden Lebensversicherungen auch für jüngere Menschen und junge Familien attraktiv. Die Plattform ist jetzt für Privatkunden in der Schweiz online.

“Im letzten Jahr waren wir überwältigt ob des grossen Interesses an der Messe und Ausstellerfläche, sodass wir am Ende leider viele Anfragen nicht mehr annehmen konnten. In enger Abstimmung mit unseren Mitgliedern haben wir das Messe-Konzept weiterentwickelt, sodass man sagen kann, die diesjährige Messe kommt direkt aus dem Herzen der Schweizer Fintech-Szene. Als Non-Profit-Organisation sind wir zudem vorrangig inhaltlich und nicht kommerziell ausgerichtet, was unser Publikum sehr zu schätzen weiss.”

Mit Zürich Tourismus hat Swiss Finance Startups einen engagierten Partner gefunden, um die Swiss Fintech Fair 2019 auf das nächste Level zu bringen. Erfahrene Eventprofis stehen der Startup-Vereinigung zur Seite und durch eine enge Zusammenarbeit soll die Fintech-Messe ein voller Erfolg für die Startup- und Fintech-Szene wie auch den Standort Zürich werden.
