The launch of iCashly app will be financed through a capital increase
As for Rigsave Tech, founded in April 2019, the launch of the app will be financed through a capital increase, which will be subscribed by the parent company Rigsave spa, and through an equity crowdfunding campaign, mainly aimed at raising awareness of the fintech company and its app. The campaign will be launched once the partnership with a bank has been signed. RigSave Tech is currently engaged in negotiations with three different banks in order to find a partner to provide payment services.
The app makes it possible to manage personal finances and use Rigsave Capital’s investment services. The services and products are provided through machine learning and AI systems, with the aim of simplifying the end customer’s approach to finance as much as possible.
The iCashly app is in the prototyping phase and a demo has already been launched for illustrative purposes. With the app, the costs of distribution and placement of products will be reduced to zero, which can be accessed not only by HNWI, but also by affluent and retail customers.
Rigsave Capital offers customized asset management services
Rigsave Capital Ltd, based in Malta, is an asset management company, authorized by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). It has the freedom to provide services by the Bank of Italy and seven other supervisory authorities for financial intermediaries in Luxembourg, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and France.
Rigsave Capital offers customized asset management services, with a focus on structuring financial products tailored to the needs of individual and professional clients. In particular, it is a general partner of the Raaf fund (acronym of Rigsave Absolute Alpha Fund), a closed-end investment fund, set up as a Special Limited Partnership managed by Rigsave Capital sàrl.
