13 Nov YUKKA Lab wins “Best of Show” at FinovateAsia 2017
And the Oscar goes to…can you imagine the feeling of receiving the prize, which is also known as “the Oscars of the FinTech scene”? We feel honored! And we are proud and happy! Each year, some 40 startups compete for the prestigious Best Live Product Presentation award”. Jury and participants both vote to determine how well a product addresses a relevant problem for the target audience, if it solves the issue in an intelligent and functional way, and how innovative it really is. Besides the “Best of Show” award our team in Hong Kong gathered a lot of meaningful client feedback. Or how Oliver Berchtold, Chief Business Development Officer YUKKA Lab AG, stated: “Finovate is one of the most meaningful meeting points for the most innovative companies in the Fintech scene and its potential customers. Visitors come deliberately to discover the best and newest technological solutions and business ideas. The broad contact with clients and industry stakeholders is of great value to us as is the immediate feedback on our product“.
Saving time by aggregating financial news feeds
SENTILab, the product that YUKKA Lab presented was praised above all for the simple visualization of highly complex news content. When announcing YUKKA Lab’s win, Anthony Potts, established Jury Member and director of the Westpac Group’s Principal Investments, stated that one of the biggest challenges facing advisors and bankers is deciphering the multitude of data flows and information that ultimately drive the investment value that advisors create for their clients. The time and effort required to take advantage of sentiment-driven moves has previously only been available to large scale institutional money managers, he added, wrapping his announcement with the following words: “What I loved about YUKKA’s solution was the ability to make the complex very simple and intuitive in a way that allows users to access information that is actionable and directly relevant to the markets and asset classes they are trading“.
