Innovative and exceptional
As the financial services landscape evolves, additiv stands at the pinnacle of innovation and exceptional service. The firm recently secured the accolade of Best Investment Management Platform for a Private Bank/ Family Office/Wealth Manager at the esteemed Global Private Banking Innovation Awards 2023, organised by The Digital Banker. This recognition is a testament to additiv’s forward-thinking strategy, leveraging cutting-edge technology to reimagine the provision and consumption of financial services.
Nirav Patel, Managing Director of Global Private Banker and The Digital Banker, extolled additiv’s triumph.

Paradigm shift in WM APAC
In a world where the middle-class population in the Asia Pacific region is forecast to increase by 73% (to 3.5 billion) by 2030, there is a paradigm shift underway in wealth management. The affluent demographic is not only growing but also becoming younger and more digitally savvy, requiring financial institutions to reimagine their strategies. In response to these evolving trends, the Swiss fintech firm additiv is revolutionising the landscape with its Orchestrated Finance Platform, specifically designed to help private banks, family offices, and wealth managers capture this business opportunity.
Pieter Zystra, General Manager for additiv APAC, notes, “The future of wealth management necessitates a shift from traditional auxiliary services to a truly customercentric approach.”
As additiv’s proprietary consumer survey found 64% of Asian consumers would switch their bank if they perceive a competitors’ offer as more innovative. And 68% prefer to take investment services by a nonfinancial brand.
Business model transformation key to meet clients’ expectations
Business model transformation involves the strategic integration of a variety of financial products and services, all delivered through powerful orchestration platforms. By leveraging APIs, these platforms act as a conduit between regulated assets (BaaS, IaaS, investment products) on the supply side and embedded finance on the demand side. This seamless integration creates an ecosystem where banking converges with everyday life and large opportunities arise for the ones positioned.
