Story of scale: how fintech Blanco, small in Holland, could reach Asia
Blanco Services in the Netherlands is launching a B2B digital wealth-management service, and founder Joost Walgemoed has global ambitions. What will it take for them to enter far-flung markets, and can they take on local fintechs too?
- Fintechs are striving for scale, meaning solutions for financial institutions in Asia are emerging from everywhere
- Blanco Services is a Dutch fintech now going live with “wealth management out of a box”, with hopes of reaching distant shores
Blanco Services, a fintech from the Netherlands providing digital services to the wealth-management industry, is looking to scale to other European and then Asian markets, says Joost Walgemoed, director and founder.
The startup’s ambitions are an example of how harnessing the technology of cloud computing and delivering a solution to let investment firms slash costs can enable small companies to expand into new markets.
But Blanco will face tests before it is ready to address the funds industry in Asia, let alone Luxembourg, the market first on its list to enter outside of Holland.
