As an agile e-learning platform we have been able to be the first on the Italian market to develop products and services best serving private investors’ interests and investment planning needs covering every stage of the investors’ lifecycle.

We have a loyal, satisfied and recurrent customer base which is expanding thanks to our wide – ranging advertisement campaigns.

Why have you become interested in fintech? What opportunities do you see in this sector?

Fintech is the natural evolution of our company’s growth path. We’re grateful to the world of training and we are willing to mantain our educational vocation which allowed us to reach tens of thousands of investors, but we want to take a step further towards this sector. By leveraging technology, we would like to further improve our investment planning solutions’ efficiency and usability.
We are confident that fintech could be the chance to simplify investors’ money life and investments. Our method, expressed through a new, fast and intuitive form has the potential to hugely impact savers and investors life. The fintech sector is extremely inspiring and innovative. We want to be an active part of the network revolving around it.

How can you, as a Professional Partner , support fintechs in the community?

Lixi Invest is laser focused on the needs, fears, wishes and desires of flesh and blood investors. Our community comprises more than 25.000 savers and investors and it is an ideal starting point to build a permanent observatory with the purpose of gathering data, statistics and insights related to saving habits, investments and personal finance in general. It would be interesting to discuss these topics within the community and to provide our expertise: after all, we are “investor experts” before being investment experts.
