Indosuez WM Targets Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Switzerland

Indosuez Wealth Management, the global wealth management arm of the Crédit Agricole Group, extends access to its digital platform to clients in Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco and Switzerland.

Indosuez Wealth Management this week launched the “StartUp Connections” platform for its clients in Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco and Switzerland.

The digital platform offering access to an international network of startups. The platform’s success with clients in France has prompted Indosuez Wealth Management to expand it to group clients in Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco and Switzerland.

Developed by the Indosuez Innovation Lab, “StartUp Connections” lists more than 100 international startups in the fundraising phase or in search of business relationships. Accessed online or via mobile, it targets Indosuez clients interested in the entrepreneurial world and looking to invest in projects directly alongside entrepreneurs. After registering on the platform, clients can select startups according to their criteria, such as business sector, maturity or environmental impact, and then request to be put in touch with the startup.

Since the launch of the platform in France six years ago, there have been investments of over €11 million ($12 million) in startups in line with the aspirations of clients, particularly in the healthcare, environment, energy transition, and sustainable finance sectors.

“StartUp Connections” relies in particular on the the Crédit Agricole Group’s international network of startup accelerators, in a bid to enable contacts between business angels, investors and entrepreneurs.

“At Indosuez, we support entrepreneurship and innovation. StartUp Connections is all about making connections – the aim being to create a virtuous circle, both personally and professionally – between our investor clients and the founders of the startups in our ecosystem. The platform also contributes to the overall improvement of the experience of these clients and investors,” Benoît Bourdin, head of innovation markets at Indosuez Wealth Management, said.

Indosuez created its Innovation Lab in Paris in 2020 based on three tasks: familiarising employees with digital technology, experimenting and carrying out projects, and welcoming and collecting ideas by creating a showroom to involve clients and prospects in the creation process.
