Elinvar raises EUR25m funding round led by Toscafund


Berlin-based WealthTech PaaS Elinvar has successfully closed a EUR25 million funding round to scale its multi-tenant platform, connecting the wealth management ecosystem. 

The lead investor for the round is Toscafund Asset Management (subject to approval of the BaFin, the federal office for financial supervision). Existing shareholders Ampega Asset Management, finleap and Goldman Sachs also participated in the round.

Elinvar, founded in 2016 in Berlin, exclusively focuses on B2B2C, enabling its partners to digitalise their business models. The Platform as a Service (PaaS) offers a multi-tenant solution with the vision to connect the entire wealth management ecosystem. While Elinvar delivers the technological infrastructure, banks, discretionary portfolio managers, third party providers and all other users of the Elinvar platform can efficiently execute new business models, access new value chains, optimize their costs and utilize their core competencies. Within less than five years, Elinvar has grown to more than 100 employees and opened a second office in Magdeburg.

Several major German private banks, discretionary portfolio managers and Germany’s largest liability umbrella, Fondsdepot Bank, are already using the platform, typically in partnership with multiple players. The private bank Donner & Reuschel for example shared Elinvar’s vision early on. After migrating its own book of business to the platform, Donner & Reuschel also makes use of Elinvar’s multi-tenant capabilities in the context of its strongly growing business with independent discretionary portfolio managers; serving already one in six portfolio managers across Germany and constantly optimising for the best end-to-end solution.     

After an intense building phase, developing a broad range of service packages and digitalising several business models, Elinvar is now ready to start heavily investing into its expansion. While continuing to grow its team in a lean and sustainable manner, Elinvar aims to support increasingly complex business models, offering more and more self-customisation options and connecting the entire ecosystem on its platform.

Chris Bartz, CEO & Co-Founder of Elinvar, says: “Wealth management is going through a massive change. In order to offer the best solutions to their clients, wealth managers need to focus on their core competencies and collaborate with other partners, complementary to their expertise. Our goal is to connect the entire ecosystem and to enable our partners to execute their target operating model in the best way possible. We are proud that Toscafund and our existing shareholders share our vision and support us in delivering on it.”
