    A New Real Estate «Crowdlending» Platform in Switzerland 

    Latest to be launched, based in Geneva, SwissLending allows developers to complete their funding directly from individuals in search of attractive returns on unique and visible projects

    SwissLending, a new player within the FinTech ecosystem and the first crowdfunding in specializing in loans for professionals, was officially launched in Geneva.

    A New Real Estate «Crowdlending» Platform in Switzerland fintechActivity began in early 2016 to test the procedures implemented by the company. Two transactions were completed successfully in Lancy, Switzerland and Villiers-sur-Marne, France, for a total amount of funds raised over CHF 1.1 million.

     

    Globally, the crowdfunding industry had grown to approximately $ 34.4 Billion (yes, with a “B”) by the end of 2015, according to the study published by Massolution. Looking at those numbers by market segment, two stand out in terms of volume: lending to businesses and individuals, and real estate crowdfunding.

    The latter, growing rapidly, is valued at $ 2.57 billion in 2015, but this sector is still in its infancy in Switzerland. As exposure and education increases, so will the size of the market.

    In practice, the level of equity is the Achilles heel of a promoter seeking growth. Promoters currently face two major and recurring problems: longer product cycles (almost systematic recourses on building permits) and increasing capital requirements asked by their banking partners.

    These two phenomena cause the slowdown of development of new real estate operations. is the opportunity to address this downturn by offering developers additional funding in complement to that of the .

    In the property sector, the crowdlending revolution is even more active as real estate investing has always been reserved to institutional investors and UHNWI. The need to democratize the offering, generally considered rewarding (yield from 6% to 12%) and with controlled risk, is the purpose of SwissLending.

    It will place the investor at the heart of projects’ financing of public utility &; the construction of housing, offices &8211; with high added value. The funding lasts only a few months and is reimbursed at the completion of the construction and sale of the lots.

    In summary, the historical funding model of real estate transactions is not as dynamic as it once was. Banks are more cautious and the cycles of real estate transactions are longer. Real estate crowdlending is an innovative financing alternative, and an interesting source of profitability for developers and investors.

    Top 5 Insurtech Startups in Switzerland 

    , a burgeoning phenomenon, promises to disrupt the insurance industry by leveraging to provide greater efficiency, more flexibility and cheaper prices to consumers.

    The insurtech industry is growing steadily with over 900 companies across 14 categories from 53 countries, according to a report by Venture Scanner. These ventures have raised over US$ 16.5 billion in funding as of January 2016.

    via Venture Scanner

    VC investment into insurtech is on the rise. According to the Wall Street Journal, VCs injected US$ 167 million in the sector in the third quarter.

    Rodolfo Gonzalez, a partner at Foundation Capital, told the media outlet that &;over the past 18 months or so the number of startup founders interested in the insurance space has grown dramatically.&;

    Insurtech applications cover everything from offering automotive, health and travel and employee benefits insurance products, to peer-to-peer insurance platforms, data and intelligence solutions, but also comparison platforms, marketplaces, as well as infrastructure and backend for enterprises.

    The US currently hosts some of the world&;s leading insurtech . This includes Metromile, an automotive insurance provider that offers pay-as-you-drive coverage, and Oscar, a non-employee health insurance provider.

    Metromile utilizes an on-board diagnostics (OBD) device to wirelessly send driving data to measure the specific actions of individual clients, as well as mobile technology to collect data points and offer additional services to clients. Metromile has raised over US$ 205 million in funding so far.

    Oscar aims at revolutionizing insurance through data, technology and design. Oscar provides each client with a branded personal fitness device that collects data such as sleep time, which it delivers to healthcare providers, streamlining and optimizing the caregiving process. Oscar has raised over US$ 727 million in funding and serves over 145,000 customers.

    In Europe, notable insurtech startups include Clark, an insurance broker which sells insurance products from more than 160 providers in Germany, and GetSafe, another German venture providing a digital insurance manager on mobile.

    Film: Fintech Made in Switzerland 

    Der Dokumentarfilm in besteht aus Interviews mit Startup- Unternehmern, Investoren, Banquiers und Politikern, die das Schweizer FinTech-Ökosystem mitgestalten. Fernab von Medienhype stellt der die Personen vor, die am Wandel des Finanzsektors mitarbeiten und regt zum konstruktiven Denken über den Finanzplatz
    Schweiz und dessen Zukunft an.

    Film: Fintech Made in Switzerland fintech

    Einen Kontrapunkt zu den Interviews setzen historische Banknoten und die Pilatus- Zahnradbahn in Luzern. Motive technischer und gesellschaftlicher Errungenschaften und Aufnahmen der Zahnradbahn, eine waghalsige Pionierleistung vor 125 Jahren, untermalen die Aussagen der Interviewpartner, die motiviert über ihre Erfahrungen und Zukunftspläne mit FinTech in der Schweiz berichten.

     

    Trailer

    Was ist FinTech?

    FinTech, kurz für “financial ”, ist eine rasch wachsende Wirtschaftssparte, die mit Technologie und Software die Effizienz von Finanzdienstleistungen verbessert. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit ist FinTech ein globales Milliardengeschäft ausserhalb des traditionellen Finanzsektors mit disruptivem Potenzial geworden. Die Schweiz hat allerdings erst seit wenigen Jahren eine FinTech-Szene. Andere Startup-Standorte, wie London, Berlin, oder New York, könnten dem traditionellen Bankenland den Rang ablaufen. Umsomehr ist in der Schweiz viel Engagement und Erfindergeist vorhanden, den Finanzplatz gemeinsam mit FinTechs und Banken erfolgreich ins digitale Zeitalter zu bringen.

     

    Film: Fintech Made in Switzerland fintech

     

    Teilnehmer/Interviewpartner

    Für diesen Film fanden über 40 Interviews mit FinTech-Pionieren in der Schweiz statt. Diese Interviews sind in voller Länge auf der Website des Films einsehbar (http://www.fintech-documentary.com/interviews). Aus Zeitgründen sind rund 15 Gespräche in der Endfassung des Films vertreten.

    Hintergrund

    Anfangs 2016 veröffentlichte Manuel Stagars mit Ioannis Akkizidis das Buch Marketplace Lending, Financial Analysis, and the Future of Credit (Wiley, 2016). Während der zweijährigen Manuskriptphase sprach Manuel mit zahlreichen FinTech-Unternehmern, Investoren, Banken, Marktbeobachtern, Entscheidungsträgern bei Zentralbanken und Autoritäten im Finanzsektor in Amerika, England und Singapur. Der Film FinTech Made in Switzerland ist somit auch eine Weiterführung dieser Gespräche.

    „Director’s Statement“

    „Im Jahr 1996 gründete ich meine erste Firma in der Schweiz und erlebte hautnah die Euphorie und die Katerstimmung des ersten Internetbooms und -crashs. FinTech Made in Switzerland soll ein Zeitdokument sein, das die Energie und Aufbruchstimmung des FinTech-Booms im Jahre 2016 festhält. Mein grösstes Anliegen ist es, die Menschen zu portraitieren, die mit viel Herzblut den Finanzplatz weiterbringen möchten.

    Innovationen kämpfen immer auch mit Bewärtem und fordern die Veränderung bestehender Strukturen. Auf dem Schweizer Finanzplatz ist dieses Spannungsfeld ausgeprägter als in anderen Ländern. Es wird faszinierend sein, in zwei bis drei Jahren auf den Film als Momentaufnahme zurückzublicken.“

     

    Notizen zur Produktion

    -Die Dreharbeiten fanden zwischen Mai und Oktober 2016 in Zürich, Bern, Basel, Zug, Baar, Glarus und Luzern statt.

    -Als Interviewsprache wirkte die Muttersprache der Interviewpartner—in vielen Fällen Schweizerdeutsch—am natürlichsten.

    -Tech specs des Films: 1080p, 23.97fps.

    -Der Film ist selbstfinanziert und der Filmemacher hat alle Aufgaben der Regie, Produktion und Postproduktion selbst übernommen.

    Switzerland & the Blockchain: A Match Made in Heaven 

    Switzerland & the Blockchain: A Match Made in Heaven Blockchain

    The is a revolutionary that’s likely to change our lives even more than the internet has over the last twenty years. Ironically – or perhaps appropriately – it was born at a time when the global economy was hitting rock bottom with the collapse of Lehman Brothers in fall 2008.

    In November that year, somebody called Satoshi Nakamoto published the white paper ‘: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash system’. The paper boldly proclaimed that, in the future, online payments could be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.

    With the release of this whitepaper, the Blockchain technology was born and the 1999 vision of legendary economist Milton Friedman became reality: “One thing that’s missing but will soon be developed is a reliable e-cash, a method whereby on the Internet you can transfer funds from A to B without A knowing B or B knowing A – the way I can take a $20 bill and hand it over to you, and you may get that without knowing who I am”

    Since then, Bitcoin has had a rocky ride due to a number of scandals and a lot of price volatility. Despite these problems the technology has grown in popularity. It has run stably without any outages since the first Bitcoin was mined (i.e. self-sufficiently produced) in January 2009. The total market capitalization of all Bitcoins mined since its release is now approx. US$10bn (September 2016).

    In the meantime, many different versions of the original Bitcoin Blockchain have been developed and released – the most prominent examples being Ethereum and Ripple. Even the middlemen that were supposed to be replaced by it – financial institutions – have begun to embrace the Blockchain’s ‘distributed ledger technology’. They see the benefits of an efficiently run, shared, self-sufficient and self-governing distributed ledger infrastructure, and have begun to embrace it with a view to saving billions of dollars in future infrastructure costs.

    Unfortunately however, many have yet to understand the benefits of the original version of the technology – the Bitcoin Blockchain. This original version has the potential to open up radical new ways of doing business, allowing cross-border payment services that, through using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, could eventually become free – just as communication via emails, voice over IP and other communication services became free through the internet.

    The key principles behind the original Bitcoin Blockchain include decentralization (the network of participants run the technology and everybody can participate with their computer by downloading the open-source software package), trust (through algorithms and cryptography rather than middlemen like corporations acting as ‘agents of trust’), immutability (all transactions in the ledger are non-revocable once confirmed by the consensus mechanism of the Blockchain), transparency (all transactions are publicly observable) and privacy (the only aspect that is not publicly visible are the parties involved in the transactions).

    So what does have to do with all of this?

    Among the core values of Swiss society are neutrality, politicoeconomic stability,empowermentof its citizens through direct democracy and federalism and, above all, the right to privacy. While the latter is often confused internationally with the ‘right to hide and cheat’ when it comes to financial matters, this right is close to every Swiss citizen’s heart and has a strong historical pedigree. The fact that this right was abused by many, leading to the abolition of the Swiss banking secrecy law (for non-Swiss domiciled clients) in 2012 after severe international pressure has left many Swiss worried that this may be the beginning of the end of Swiss privacy laws. The loudest critics already believe Switzerland is heading in the direction of an NSA-like future of total government surveillance, and have launched a referendum campaign around protecting the privacy of the Swiss population through constitutional law.

    When one compares the key principles of Blockchain technology with these traditional Swiss values, it becomes clear that there’s an almost magical symbiosis between the two. Blockchain aims to empower the individuals who use it, for the first time allowing peer-to-peer transactions to take place without the need for a middleman as an ‘agent of trust’. Early participants in the Bitcoin movement even dreamed of a future without banks and nation states. That future may be some way off. For now, a political system like the Swiss one, with its federalism and direct democracy, would already constitute a step forward for citizens that are suffering under government and public sector corruption.

    Blockchain technology provides the possibility of transacting peer-to-peer in the public eye, thus preventing theft, fraud and corruption while theoretically* protecting the individual’s privacy in such transactions. These features of Blockchain technology go hand-in-hand with Swiss privacy laws that protect individuals from government surveillance while also defending them with from criminal activity.

    Switzerland has a wonderful opportunity to build on this magical symbiosis between a revolutionary technology and the nation’s core values. In an area around Lake Zug, an area called the ‘Crypto Valley’ is emerging. The valley is home to a myriad Bitcoin and Blockchain companies. It counts more than 20 Blockchain companies, making it one of the biggest clusters in the world for this unique technology. Globally leading companies like Xapo and Ethereum are already calling the Crypto Valley their home.

    Another key ingredient making Switzerland a leading Blockchain hub is that it’s home to some of the world’s best universities, both technical, like ETH Zurich and EPFL Lausanne, and business universities, like the University of Zurich and the University of St. Gallen. All these universities have already established dedicated teams that look closely into the technical and business aspects of Blockchain technology and how it will affect future business models of Switzerland’s Financial Services companies.

    Switzerland boasts a vibrant innovation ecosystem which takes top spots in global league tables when it comes to competitiveness and innovation. As one of the world’s leading financial centers, Switzerland could play a leading role in supporting the development of Blockchain technology, with a view to making it a competitive advantage for its financial center and beyond. Switzerland could reap the benefits of the Blockchain in other key sectors of its economy too – such as its strong pharmaceutical and watch industries – by proactively embracing this technology for securing supply chains of medical and luxury goods.

    But Blockchain technology will not only impact the Swiss economy – it will eventually impact every company and individual on this planet once Blockchain services for supply chain management and digital identity have matured. Once the provenance of any good can be publicly and safely registered on the Blockchain, counterfeiting goods will be a thing of the past.

     

    • Access to Blockchain services can and should be regulated to protect consumers from criminals and as such KYC/AML rules should become applicable to Blockchain services as well.
