Get in the Ring and Robeco are looking for innovative solutions to gamify investment services. This is a great opportunity to work together with one of the most innovative asset management companies in the Netherlands.
Founded in Rotterdam in 1929, Robeco’s “cautious pioneering” DNA has lead them to become one of the most successful assessment management firms in the Netherlands. Their investment engineers prioritize sustainability and research to drive their knowledge-based decisions. Their broad selection of products in active investments, ranging from equities to bonds make it possible for anyone to find a suitable solution and secure their future with Robeco. Research lies at the heart of everything Robeco does and constant innovation makes their business thrive. So far, Robeco has an AUM of UR 167 billion and they employ over 890 people at 15 offices worldwide.
Wealth management and the mutual fund market has a bland and dull reputation. Many people think it’s put away for businessmen and the riches. Robeco wants to show the world that investment can be fun, that anyone can do it, alone or together with your friends or family working towards a common goal. Although goals that lay so far in the future are difficult to maintain it can be a great motivator. We are looking for solutions in the following areas:
GAMIFIED INVESTMENT PLATFORMS
Solutions that can gamify investment to make it more fun and easier to understand. The solution must focus on maintaining a low entry barrier and making disciplined investing fun and rewarding.
REFERRAL MARKETING TOOLS
Solutions that focus on a community investment platform, where referral marketing tools are used to attract more users. For example, having a group of people invest together towards a common goal while having fun, learning and motivating each other.
TOOLS FOR A SPECIFIC CUSTOMER GROUP
Solutions that are tailored to a specific customer group. For example youngsters, who tend to spend more and live in the “now” and also women, who are underrepresented in investment services.
