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 solves many problems with the SWIC Gateway.

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 smartphone. 

Traditional financial providers do not target small investors

Due to the 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 little level of orders, transferring value – especially across borders – is slow and inconvenient. SWIC gives you 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.

Our Solution

Access to financial world for our Users

Our approach delivers personalized, innovative wealth management solutions to a more significant number of people than ever before. We link professional financial providers worldwide to smaller investors from emerging markets and enable them to:

  • Secure their savings without a bank account
  • Benefit from our free education (SWIC Academy)
  • Achieve long-term investment/saving goals
  • Trade as a low as 25US
Access to the new markets for our Providers

The SWIC GATEWAY is founded by the team of asset managers and supported by a global network of licensed finance professionals.

  • We digitalize financial products through tokenization.
  • Expand to new markets worldwide
  • Diversify your customer base (B2C, D2C)

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

We target the MSCI Emerging Markets with the pilot market, the Philippines and then focus on Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, and South Africa. These countries have great potential with a growing number of young and educated people who have a regular income but is underbanked.

Product Offering

SWIC provides access to a small selection of investment opportunities. SWIC wants to make available only long-term and stable financial products. We do not wish to give access to speculative products for quick profits with a high risk of loss.  

Our focus is on long-term asset growth and support of the saving goals of our customers.
