Scalable Capital Hits EUR500m in assets


Just 22 months after its launch in Germany and 16 months after launch in the UK, digital wealth manager Scalable Capital is now managing over EUR500 million of investments for more than 15,000 clients.

“In the past ten months, we have been able to grow our assets under management fivefold to over half a billion euros. This shows that private investors value the benefits of a technology-driven investment model, cost-effective ETFs and digital usability, ” says Adam French, Founder and CEO of Scalable Capital.
Scalable Capital’s partnership with ING-DiBa, Germany’s third-largest bank by number of customers, provided a particular boost to growth: in the first two months of the cooperation, almost 7,000 ING-DiBa customers have already invested more than 150 million euros. So far, no other online wealth manager in Germany has reached 150 million euros in such a short amount of time.
While ING-DiBa is in charge of custody, Scalable Capital manages client investments with its proprietary risk management technology. It is the first fully integrated partnership between a major German bank and a digital wealth manager. The cooperation is likely to be rolled-out to other European markets.
As assets under management increase, so does the age of Scalable Capital’s clients. The average age currently stands at 50 years whereas a year ago it was just 42 years. Over a third of investors are over 55; testament to the fact that digital wealth management is by no means only embraced by Millennials. Rather, it attracts audiences with wealth to invest and previous investment expertise that can appreciate its benefits. Particularly welcome is the growing share of female investors, which rose to more than 20 percent within the past 12 months. Regardless of age and gender, Scalable Capital’s clients continue to have one thing in common: they are well educated. Over 90 percent of clients have a university degree. Their most common professions are bankers, economists, computer scientists and engineers.
On average, clients have currently invested GBP28,000 with Scalable Capital, with new clients significantly increasing their initial investment within the first six months. Nearly half of the clients also use a free savings plan, which is on average at GBP350 per month. The company also manages many large portfolios. Portfolios with more than GBP100,000 represent almost a third of assets under management.
