FinTech Group AG (WKN 524 960, ISIN: DE0005249601, FLA.GR) and Finotek Inc. start cross-licensing innovative technology solutions in the first European-Asian fintech joint venture.
Today, FinTech Group AG was invited by the Korean government to sign the joint venture in the presence of Korea’s president Park Geun-hye in Paris.
Under the framework of the joint venture, FinTech Group provides access to its proprietary mobile-payment solution “kesh”, a multi-facetted smartphone wallet, which allows peer-to-peer, POS, and online-payments. The “Made in Germany” solution is user friendly and has significant advantages in terms of flexibility, data security, and regulation. It is planned to market the solution under a white-label-agreement in Asia.
Finotek, a B2B-specialist with renowned Korean clients both public and private, offers a number of all-digital mobile-powered solutions, which will be leveraged to expand FinTech Group’s product portfolio in the European market. Finotek provides cutting-edge mobile banking solutions, which allow for remote internet banking services with real-time ID verification – a fully digital process without any media breaks. With “SmarterSign” Finotek also developed a biometric authentication solution for mobile-based e-signature verification and fraud prevention. Additionally, Finotek provides a cloud-based, fully-mobile, and real-time mortgage platform to complete a loan application in just 30 minutes.
“We are very proud to join forces with our partner Finotek and build a bridge between two huge markets. This is the first German-Korean fintech joint venture, allowing to jointly seize business opportunities which make sense both technologically and commercially”, comments Frank Niehage, CEO of FinTech Group AG.
