Bambu and OUTvest win FinovateAfrica’s Best of Show awards
Finovate’s first foray into the African fintech scene has been a huge success. The companies that demonstrated their technologies live on stage this week showed us innovations in everything from automated regtech and small business lending, to customer engagement and artificial intelligence (AI) enabled credit assessment.
Yet the two companies whose live demos made the greatest impressions on our FinovateAfrica audience were firms focused on one of fintech’s earliest – and most persistent – disruptions: the rise of the robo-advisor.
For these companies, wealthtech is still fertile ground for fintech innovation. And improving the way individual investors and their advisors build and manage personalised, investment portfolios is as important today as it has ever been.
Bambu won for its goal-based, white label robo-advisor offering that gives investors a natural and effortless experience in finding the right investment strategy for their client’s needs.
OUTvest found glory for its hybrid robo-advisor that uses an evidence-based approach to help everyone build and mange their own investment strategy.
