À la veille de l’édition 2018 des Fintech Awards, Paperjam.lu est allé demander aux 15 demi-finalistes de se présenter brièvement et partager leurs ambitions. Le responsable pour le Benelux de la start-up allemande Raisin, Eelco Habets, s’est prêté au jeu.

Why did you decide to participate in the Fintech Awards?

“First of all, to win! Besides the attractive prizes, we think that the award ceremony offers lots of opportunities to learn and connect with other fintechs as well as politicians and financial experts from Luxembourg.

What is the value proposition of your solution?

“We provide customers with the most attractive savings and investment products from partner banks from all over Europe.

What will you do if you win? Would Luxembourg be a potential hub for you to attack the international/European market?

“Our headquarters are based in Berlin but Luxembourg is a very attractive potential market for us: according to the latest data by the ECB, the average interest rate for new deposits for private households with maturities of less or equal to one year is only 0.15%, which is well below the average of the euro area. Winning the event and being featured in the press would be the ideal prerequisite to enter new partnerships in Luxembourg.”
