InvestSuite provides automated investment solutions to help financial institutions increase their market position and retain clients by addressing their rapidly-evolving digital needs with online solutions.
The fintech company was established in Leuven, Belgium, in June last year and has already built a presence in Warsaw, Frankfurt, Luxembourg and now Copenhagen, where InvestSuite expects to expand the company. Offices in London, Amsterdam and Zurich are under way.

InvestSuite’s first product is a white-label robo-advisory solution product; a bot serving as an online wealth advisor, which can be integrated seamlessly into financial institutions’ online presence. And the ambition is to grow the product portfolio in 2019.
“We are in Copenhagen because it is a great window to the wider Scandinavian market. Right now, we have meetings with banks and other financial institutions to find partners for our product, but we are also looking for employees, especially skilled designers and business anthropologists” - Bart Vanhaeren, CEO/Co

According to InvestSuite, Copenhagen was a natural next stop to grow business and focus on research in product design and user experience.
“Scandinavia is a rapidly growing hub for start-up activity, and Copenhagen Fintech has become a key player on the European fintech scene. Denmark is an almost cashless society and the people are very familiar with digital solutions. Also, Copenhagen has many highly-skilled talents and there is a lot of research into mobile user behaviour – so all in all, Copenhagen is a very interesting place for us to be right now” - Bart Vanhaeren, CEO/Co
