Applied FinTech Cluster

The Applied FinTech cluster is about financial solutions based on new thinking and new technologies, brought together in a very smart way. It’s about the “real world” – not just an idea but a clearly defined and dedicated business case. This approach looks to create a solid platform to deliver future financial solutions or to solve known challenges in a highly innovative wayWe are focusing on three areas:

·      Machine learning, Robo Advisory, cognitive automation

How can we automate financial tasks which are human today - and at the same time create the output instantly and in way better quality?

·      Smart living, customer journey

FinTech meets Internet of things. Devices, sensors and products interacting with financial systems directly – both ways.

Predictive analytics and derived best actions, personalization and dedication of services

·      Blockchain, “consensus computing”

Not the technology itself: But use cases for shared ledgers in general, change of business models, streamlining operational processes through the use of distributed ledgers
