i2invest, a Switzerland based fintech, reportedly announced it secured €1.2 million through its new seed funding round as well as launched its first investment products. Founded in 2017, i2invest describes itself as a “lending tech” for investors that uses a data-driven and artificial intelligent (AI) supported approach to selectively and globally invest in the “best loans” from digital lending marketplaces.
“By collecting and analysing historical credit data, we can identify patterns and anticipate trends. Our internally developed rating tool enables us to thoroughly examine any intermediaries, lenders and borrowers. Refined machine-learning algorithms gather more domain knowledge than any human advisor could manage. On our specifically developed dashboard, users can monitor their portfolio at all times.”
According to eu-startups, the seed funding round was backed by unnamed business angels and the funds will be used to support i2invest’s growth and development, as well as expand its team. The funds will also support two fund projects that will be launched in this fall. Co-Founder and CEO of i2invest, Gregor Stadelmann, shared with the media outlet:
“This project is a matter of the heart for us. We are pleased that we can make a positive impact on the domestic business environment.”
The company added:
“We are a Swiss-based team of financial, entrepreneurial, legal and software experts. With a deep understanding for trends within the domain of Marketplace Lending, we have created a software solution that is unique to the industry and already convinces a satisfied customer base consisting of trustees, banks and asset managers who want a hassle free solution to manage their investments in marketplace lending.”
