Share

flatexDEGIRO AG (WKN: FTG111, ISIN: DE000FTG1111, Ticker: FTK.GR), Europe's largest and fastest growing online broker for retail investors, today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to extend its long-standing B2B partnership with digital wealth manager Whitebox, one of the leading independent robo-advisors for retail investors. Together, flatexDEGIRO and Whitebox will offer a fully digital investment solution to flatexDEGIRO's customers, aimed to start at flatex Germany in summer 2022.

Frank Niehage, CEO of flatexDEGIRO: "The extended partnership supports flatexDEGIRO's strategic priority to provide millions of retail investors in Europe with the best online brokerage platform in terms of product, platform and price. It enables us to offer our customers access to an additional, highly attractive and comfortable way of investing. This benefits in particular customers who were previously less active in trading. In addition, it enables us to address new client groups that are generally looking for support in accessing the capital markets on a sustainable, long-term basis. Offering digital wealth management in form of robo-advisory is the next, logical step in verticalizing our unique European brokerage platform."

Salome Preiswerk, Founder and Managing Director of Whitebox: "We are very excited about the opportunities that arise from the strategic partnership. Our aim is to offer investments that are tailored to individual needs, simple, transparent, cost-effective - and of high quality. Expanding our reach with a trusted partner such as flatexDEGIRO to potentially several million retail investors across Europe means a big step forward for us."

Muhamad Chahrour, CFO of flatexDEGIRO and CEO of DEGIRO: "With flatexDEGIRO, we retailise capital market access. A wide range of products, low prices, easy handling. However, many customers still need guidance when it comes to investment. Be it due to indecision, lack of ideas or the desire for a simple, tailor-made product. ETF savings plans are an important step in the right direction, but clients still have to search for, analyse and select the right ETF themselves. Many customers have asked us for a simple solution - we now deliver this in partnership with Whitebox. In a few clicks, everyone can create their own portfolio - and benefit sustainably from Europe's easiest access to capital markets."

flatexDEGIRO and Whitebox partner in the B2B space for more than seven years already. Over these years, Whitebox has been awarded best robo-advisor in Germany several times with especially strong ratings on product offer, service quality and attractiveness of its pricing model [1]. This strategic fit as well as the trustful relationship and deep mutual understanding built over time makes Whitebox the perfect partner for flatexDEGIRO to offer this ancillary service to its customers in a seamless and intuitive way. After the successful launch at flatex, flatexDEGIRO will look into expanding the offering to all DEGIRO customers.
