With the blockchain platform Wecan Comply, the Swiss private bank Gonet supports a project that aims to simplify the interaction between banks and external asset managers using blockchain technology.
The Swiss private bank Gonet & Cie from Geneva is joining the blockchain platform Wecan Comply for digital interaction between banks and external asset managers, according to a statement from the bank on December 7th.
The advantages of digital communication at a glance
It is convinced that „the targeted use of new technologies will be a key factor in developing relationships between financial institutions and their customers,“ writes Gonet & Cie, adding:
“As a private bank on a human scale, we are very close to our EAM partners and their needs. It is therefore important for us to support them with an innovative digital solution that aims to optimize compliance processes via blockchain functions with promising potential. „
The Wecan Comply platform, launched last October, aims to simplify the interaction between banks and external asset managers using blockchain technology.
As you can find out on the Wecan Comply website , the project aims to replace paper-based communication and the exchange of important documents such as compliance data with a digital blockchain alternative.
In addition to Gonet & Cie, over a dozen players from the financial sector are already participating in the project, including the private banks Pictet, Edmond de Rothschild and Hyposwiss, as well as the asset manager Pleion.
Blockchain document management as a cost reducer
The realization that blockchain technology can reduce costs through less administration and paperwork is gaining ground. The US company Kodak presented a blockchain platform for document management back in 2019 . The online retailer Amazon filed a patent in May for a blockchain system that is supposed to track the movement of goods along the supply chain.
