For 2018, Evolute claims to have reached a revenue grew by over 600%, reaching a CHF 1.5 million run-rate revenue. This growth is driven by its existing and new clients, among them Finaport, VT Wealth Management and LimmatWealth. Evolute currently runs a total of CHF 9 billion in assets on its platform for its 17 clients.

The Evolute team plans major platform updates in 2019 with innovations such as a mobile advisory solution, managing and reporting non-bankable and crypto assets in one single portfolio view and integration of the product marketplace.

The Board of Directors remains unchanged with Michael Hartweg (Chairman and CEO ad interim), Patrick Barnert and Kathleen DeRose.
