Join Techfoliance next 11th of April in Paris for the Emerging Managers Day 2018, one of the most prominent event where wealth managers and Fintech start-ups meet.

Robo-advisors, WealthTech, etc. we’ve seen the rise of a new generation of financial technology companies that create digital solutions to transform the investment and asset management industry.

Behing these barbarian words lies automated services that use complex algorithms created to offer customed advice based on the analysis of millions of data on the market such as yield targets, user’s risk aversion profile and other variables such as age and income.

WealthTech: Key Figures
