Fintech Fair Goes Virtual

For the third year in a row the online platform for asset managers, E-Merging, will hold its unique virtual event on the 26 January.

Three years ago, many people in the industry looked upon the event as a publicity stunt. However as the virtual financial fair builds up to the 2016 event the response is already well beyond the previous two years.

Following a management buyout (MBO) under the leadership of founder Olivier Collombin, E-Merging no longer belongs to the Geneva private bank Lombard Odier.

Closer to the Fintech Community

This new structure allows for greater flexibility and closer collaboration with the FinTech community. For this years event though another significant private banking partner has been secured with Geneva based private bank Bordier, on board as reported.

In the futuristic exhibition format both institutional and private investors also have the opportunity to speak via their own computer with experts on investment solutions and financial services.

Wider Circle of Suppliers

A new feature this year is that the virtual financial fair will be open to a wider circle of providers and specialist exhibitors. Thus, this year as well as independent asset managers, family offices, academic associations and suppliers from the Lifestyle section of the party.

A full supporting program with numerous presentations from economic and financial experts respectively their avatars round off the program. Visitors can register online for free, under this link.

Young and independent
