[ENG] #130 - Erik Podzuweit (Scalable Capital) - Soaring across the Wealth Management landscape

CEO and co-founder of Scalable Capital

Season 1, episode 130

In this episode, I speak to Erik, who lets us in on the great adventure he’s having with Scalable Capital, which is soon to be Europe's leading digital investment platform. In 2014, he and his co-founders created this online WM firm in Germany.

We learn about the evolution of their offering, from their original positioning to the robo-advisor and recently their neobroker offering. Erik is a former banker at Goldman Sachs and shares a great anecdote about his success and how it all started.

We find out why Scalable Capital joined forces with Baader Bank and what approvals they needed from Bafin and the Bundesbank. We also dive into how portfolio management evolved from the first risk-based management portfolio to the most recent ESG development. We also look at portfolio rebalancing as well as customers and the acquisition funnel.

Erik walks us through their exponential growth, specifically the structure of their investment management arm. We touch on their partnerships with the major ETF providers, which have enabled them to offer Invesco, iShares and Xtrackers ETF. This includes crypto ETPs and the integration of third-party providers such as Fourth line.

Finally, we talk about their CapTable and more particularly BlackRock and Tencent, investors who deeply trust what they do. 

It’s another must-listen!
