|Differentiating features of product||The Alpian strategy is governed by its own management team, with the goal of becoming the only mobile-first digital bank that offers banking and private banking services in the Swiss market. These services will be aimed at the mass affluent client segment and will include tailored investment products for clients, informed by the team’s knowledge and digital face-to-face access to experienced financial advisors. Alpian aims to create an innovative new banking offering, tailored to the mass affluent population (those with investible assets of between CHF 100k – 1 million) in Switzerland, worth an estimated CHF 660 billion. Independent market research, which informed Alpian’s core business model, demonstrates how existing retail and private banking providers do not fully address the fundamental needs of this segment. Amongst the affluent demographic, the research found that 40% are looking for a new bank and 70% would be open to using a bank with no branches at all. Alpian’s core offerings will include tailored investment boutique products, secure digital face-to-face access to experienced financial advisors, and simplified, transparent everyday banking services. Through a modernistic digital interface, Alpian will leverage proprietary and disruptive technology to develop scalable, personalised private banking. Benefiting from REYL’s 40+ years of banking and wealth management experience, and a team of forward-thinking innovators at Alpian, the company aims to compete on an equal footing with other established banks.|
