Aachen, May 2020 - The internationally active innovation service provider Zühlke and the globally operating software provider for digital services in the field of wealth management and investment advisory, aixigo, have decided on a strategic partnership.
The partnership between Zühlke and aixigo translates into joined forces for banks and financial service providers in a disruptive environment. Zühlke brings consulting, implementation and technology experience from numerous successful projects in banking and finance. aixigo, in turn, with its API-based high-performance Wealth Management Platform, provides the foundation for new digital advisory experiences in investment advice and wealth management.
