London, 12 December 2018 – Swanest, a robo-adviser that makes intelligent investing simple, today launched Risk & Return Scanner, an investment calculator for financial media that automates risk and expected return analysis through the use of algorithms.
Swanest launches Risk & Return Scanner for financial media
For the first time, self-directed investors now have easy access to state-of-the-art financial theories through the algorithms, helping them take more informed decisions as the plugin scans the risk and expected return potential of any stock, ETF, fund and crypto.
Silvan Schumacher, CEO and co-founder, Swanest, said, “The one-size-fits-all approach to managing one’s investment portfolio is outdated. Self-directed investors want the option to personalize their portfolio – and have a co-pilot by their side while managing their assets. This includes access to tools and calculators that enable them to conduct their own risk analysis without any complexity and with the same confidence of financial analysts.”
The Risk Scanner is easy to include in the website of any financial media and is available in two versions: a white-label solution on a subscription basis, or a branded version with a revenue-sharing model. Media such as De Tijd, L’Echo and wallstreet:online have already implemented the plugin which adds to previously available investment services and capabilities for financial media.
Frederik Delaplace, CEO, Mediafin, said, “We learned a lot from our existing partnership with Swanest and the Risk Scanner will help us engage our users better by adding further value to our content and market-data pages.”
Investors can expect more from Swanest in 2019. In addition to making the Risk & Return Scanner available to other financial media, the team envisions to provide more market-data related services. A new portfolio tracker will also follow suit, which will eventually evolve into complete digital advisory services.
The Swanest team will be at Finovate Europe in London, February 12-13, where they will demonstrate the Risk & Return Scanner as well as a digital advisory service.
