Zelig Associates advises additiv on CHF21 million investment led by BZ Bank

The investment round, led by Switzerland-based BZ Bank (acting on behalf of clients) and Patinex (Martin Ebner's private investment vehicle) is the first external equity funding additiv has received since inception.

Founded in 1998, additiv offers a comprehensive range of software solutions to the financial services industry enabling digital transformation, customer-bank-interaction models, digital marketing, sales, advice, service and performance management solutions all implemented across the company‘s Digital Finance Suite (DFS), the company‘s built-for-purpose development and operating platform.

Recent successes include the launch of Natwest‘s new robo-advice offering for the UK savings and investments market using additiv’s DFS. RBS Group’s private bank Coutts also uses additiv’s next-generation front and middle-office solutions sitting on top of the Avaloq back-office system.

This funding will finance our international expansion and help strengthen our management team. It will also fuel our production of cutting-edge SaaS/cloud-based products that ensure our clients are ahead of the curve. It really is crunch time for the sector, and this funding allows us to be at our best when our clients need us most.
