Magma, M16 Group & MW Labs
Magma is RiskPool for Cryptocurrencies and thus catering for a 23.4bn EUR market (nominal value) which is likely to grow. Hence revenues could be as high as 1.24bn EUR per year with the main customer segment being large industrial customers with their crypto applications (e.g. Bosch using IOTA in industry 4.0 processes).

Magma is also seen as a financing alternative if pre-ipo an equity measure should be required and the other options turned out not to be working (sufficiently).

Use full scale effects and learning curve to drive business development the Amazon way.
“By carving out an operational piece of the company as a platform, we could future-proof the company against inefficiency and technological stagnation” and “By systematically rebuilding most of our internal tools as an externally consumable service […] the “extra revenue [AuM and liquidity as well as more diversified income streams from a risk management perspective] might be great but the real value is in honing our internal tools”.
What’s more, this increases customer value due to taking a holistic approach, perfecting processes and allows us to keep up with future trends while effectively using our capital at hand and positioning us as a cutting edge-innovator in finance overall.
It also allows us to enlarge our data pool and thus to make better decisions and recommendations.
M16 Private Bank, Zurich
Product: Global Meta Bank Account and Credit Card applying corporate cash management and RiskPool processes fully automatically to private customer accounts while at the same time using artificial intelligence to aid the customer with regards to financial issues. Beyond this, we embedded Rock+Water funds (cross-selling investment solutions) as well as other products to complement the offer
Target customers: frequent travelers, HNWI and our own employees
Key rationale: The latter helps us to turn salaries partially into deposits again with further (HNWI) deposits in general driving AuM and cash at hand within the regulatory allowed borders (hence a further increase in liquidity); wider perception as an innovator in finance
CV (comparable to prodigy finance) and personality based small credits -> Investments of our AuM in the lucrative field of private credits (esp. for entrepreneurs, artists and other select groups facing an uphill battle with traditional banks); of course only within defined risk parameters.
Further rationales are: Increase of data and information pool globally as well as early access to potential future customers (cross-selling at later stage) and/or entrepreneurial talent.
Are you an entrepreneur and have secure income streams like for example earmarked government grants paid on a monthly basis but need the total amount at once, then look no further since we will have the right solution for you. The same applies for other non-transferable and/or earmarked cash-flows including lump sums which you need to turn into uncommitted ones.

M16 Services, Frankfurt
Key rationales: Honing internal tools, achieving further scale effects and thus a significant reduction in costs while improving overall quality and customer experience (errors more widespread across various customers and smoother processes).
Key rationales: Achieve cost savings and higher efficiency as well as honing internal skills by working with external clients which again might help us in gaining a competitive advantage (Chinese Walls apply). Positioning as a thought leader in financial technology (FinTech).
Provision of fully integrated and complementary services (e.g. Digital IR) rounding of our product range nicely from a customer perspective.

A "virtual in-house bank" giving externally the appearance that you have a company-owned bank. The latter can be of great value from a marketing perspective for you especially if you give your customers purchase-related credits or handle your payments via this virtual shell. Thus send and receive money or give customer credits by YOUR_COMPANY_NAME_Bank while actually in the back all processes are managed by one or more of our third-party FinCaT suppliers. All again connected to your ERP system.
