Fintech startup navigates its way into Asia


Following its participation in the HongKong-based SuperCharger acceleration program, the Zurich based, Investment Navigator has opened its services to the Asian market. The company launched a platform for its HongKong clients and established a subsidiary in Singapore.


Investment Navigator enhances the investment and advisory value chain from research to distribution with suitability assessments, solving cross-border distribution, product and tax suitability issues. The solutions are mainly designed for financial institutions and financial intermediaries including wealth managers.

During the past three months, Investment Navigator participated in the HongKong-based SuperCharger accelerator program, which provides a wide range of offers ranging from workshops to mentoring and connecting participants to potential investors and customers. The Zurich based Regtech startup yielded positive results. 

According to Julian Köhler, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of Investment Navigator, “The program provided us with the ideal background to establish a network in Hong Kong and beyond to better understand the needs of financial institutions in Asia with regards to their challenges in cross-border banking compliance and investment suitability. This was a door-opener to local expertise and financial institutions”.

At the Demo Day with over 600 guests, Investment Navigator launched a dedicated fund eligibility information platform for Hong Kong professional investors, confirming its expansion in the Asian Market. The startup has now established a subsidiary in Singapore and hired a new managing director for the business development in the Asian region.

“SuperCharger was the perfect opportunity to make the next expansion step towards Asia. Hong Kong and Singapore are essential financial centres also for its existing client base. We are currently serving our largest client also in the booking centres of Hong Kong and Singapore. Over the last couple of months, we were able to fill our pipeline in Asia with several tier-1 financial institutions that are interested in our solutions”, adds Köhler.
