flatexDEGIRO extends robo-advisory service
flatexDEGIRO has extended its long-standing B2B partnership with digital wealth manager Whitebox, an independent robo-advisory for retail investors.
Both firms have been partners in the B2B space for more than seven years already and Whitebox’s reputation as only grown since then, having been awarded best robo-advisor in Germany several times fpr its product offer, service quality and pricing model.
Europe’s largest and fastest growing online broker for retail investors will thus leverage Whitebox’s robo advisory and offer a fully digital investment solution to its users, starting at flatex Germany in summer 2022. After the successful launch at flatex, flatexDEGIRO will look into expanding the offering to all DEGIRO customers.
The partnership with Whitebox forms the next step in the verticalization of flatexDEGIRO as the low-cost brokerage platform addresses new customer groups and targets previously less trading-active customers.
