SWIC Digital

enables all people to invest

VISION

“SWIC Digital enables all people to invest in a secure, fast and affordable way via our blockchain-based investment platform”

Stefan Bucher
Founder

WHAT IS THE CURRENT CHALLENGE?

More than 1 bn potential investors in the emerging markets have no or only limited access to the banking system and are therefore excluded from professional investment options. SWIC Digital resolves many problems via our blockchain-based platform SWIC Gateway, which is suitable for both B2C and B2B integration.

Financial inclusion

The current global financial system is only “global” insofar as certain people in certain countries can access banking and investment products around the world. Most financial products and services are accessible only to high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs). SWIC enables private individuals to save and invest via our platform using a smartphone.

Traditional financial providers do not target small investors

Limited geographical distribution and high costs per transaction with obsolete systems and processes force providers to ignore private individuals as a target group. Existing intermediaries provide a small level of orders, and transferring value – especially across borders – is slow and inconvenient. SWIC provides an affordable solution with tokenization of the financial products enabling them to enter the new emerging markets.

SWIC Gateway

The SWIC Gateway is a blockchain-based platform that enables the direct exchange of assets between investors and providers of financial products, including immediate clearing and settlement via Smart Contracts. For the Provider, SWIC offers the tokenization of their financial products and lists them on the platform. For the Investors “Users”, SWIC provides an easy-to-use mobile app which allows them to invest without a bank account for free.

Our technology, combined with our expertise in the financial world, allows us also to provide B2B solutions. We can create new products or extend existing offerings by integrating our service.

B2B – SWIC Gateway as a third-party solution

We leverage our expertise in tokenization and finance to bring our clients new innovative solutions.

  • Tokenization of any assets
  • Integration of SWIC Gateway into existing solutions

B2C Business Model

For each transaction between the User and the Provider, SWIC charges a transaction fee from the Provider involved. No fees assigned to the User.

Target Market

Our focus lies within the MSCI Emerging Markets. These countries have great potential with a growing number of young and educated people who have a regular income but are underbanked. Our pilot market is Sri Lanka, where we have strong local partnerships and are regulatory approved for rollout.

Product Offering

 

SWIC provides access to a small selection of investment opportunities. SWIC prioritizes a long-term and stable financial solutions offering and avoids any speculative products. 

We focus on long-term asset growth and support our customers to achieve their saving goals.
