by July 20, 2022

London-based wealth management platform FNZ announced that it has acquired New Access, a private banking technology firm primarily active in the markets of Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

FNZ said that the above-mentioned markets were key to its growth plans in the US$240 trillion global wealth market.

The strategic acquisition of New Access represents a further investment by FNZ into the growing private banking and cross-border wealth sector after a number of customer successes and the acquisition of the Swiss tech innovator Appway in February 2022.

FNZ is looking to become an end-to-end wealth platform to enable wealth managers to rapidly deliver personalised services and innovative wealth products.

With more than 200 engineers and product experts, New Access has developed innovative solutions for more than 60 private banks and wealth management firms.

With now more than 200 local FNZ employees, Switzerland will become a key private banking competence center driving the further expansion within this vertical.

Today, FNZ said that it administers more than US$1.5 trillion in client assets on its platform for over 20 million clients worldwide.

The company operates in 21 countries and partners with over 650 financial institutions and over 8,000 wealth management firms.
