Swanest

Swanest is a team of financial technology entrepreneurs with the aim to put back the people at the heart of financial services. We believe the traditional financial industry should be reinvented (bankers may push products, investment advisors may be expensive or not accessible and traditional brokerage services may remain complex). We believe the time has come to design an investment solution that serves the needs of the people: simple to control, intelligent in its behaviour and transparent. Our team brings together a broad set of knowledge in the fields of software engineering, investment management and algorithmics. All capabilities that we use to challenge the status quo.
