ABOUT THE COMPANY
Started in Munich back in 2014, Scalable Capital is Europe’s leading wealth management platform. They offer their robo- advice based approach directly to customers via two models - direct B2C, and B2B2C together with large institutional partners to their respective client base.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
When HV Capital first met the founding team of Scalable Capital, people did not have access to smart automated investment platforms. Instead, they would have had to choose a set of ETF to strategically invest their money and rebalance such portfolios all the time. As this is almost impossible for a normal person, the team of Scalable wanted to solve that dilemma with technology. And bring algorithms so far only accessible to large customers of big investment banks to the mass market of end customers. Scalable started in the UK and Germany, became licensed by the financial authorities in both geographies and offer their service to end customers directly and through partnerships with large banks. Since Blackrock’s significant investment in the company in 2015, they partner with Scalable to sell and license Scalable’s technology to their client base. With more than €2bn Assets Under Management, the company is Europe’s leading automated investment platform. They are on the way to revolutionize the fintech market, further with the launch of their broker business in 2020.
