enables all people to invest
“SWIC Digital enables all people to invest in a secure, fast and affordable way via our blockchain-based investment platform”
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.
Traditional financial providers do not target small investors
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.
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)
For each transaction between the User and the Provider, SWIC charges a transaction fee from the Provider involved. No fees assigned to the User.
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.
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.
