National Bank is proud to announce that the team Aquantix from
Montreal has won the final round of the Innovation Competition.
Participants in this challenge were invited to develop new fintech
solutions to help individuals improve how they save and manage their
money. The finalists presented their solutions to a jury at the Grand
Finale, held yesterday evening in virtual format.
Aquantix AI is
a portfolio management platform that offers real-time environmental,
social and governance (ESG) risk monitoring and analytics for global
assets and investments. In this way, Aquantix helps users make
informed investment and asset allocation decisions that reduce total
exposure to these risks.
"I'd like to congratulate all the teams that took on the
challenge of proposing innovative wealth management solutions. Your
inventiveness and ability to identify clients' needs are driving
organizations to reimagine themselves and the future of the industry.
We're pleased to be able to continue to support Aquantix in developing
its idea, while promoting entrepreneurship. This is all the more
important in this difficult time for businesses," said Martin
Gagnon, Co-President and Co-Chief Executive Officer of National Bank
Financial and Executive Vice-President, Wealth Management at National Bank.
National Bank launched the Innovation Competition last fall in
partnership with Flinks, the OSMO Foundation and Fintech Cadence. The
goal of the Innovation Competition is to disrupt the wealth management
industry, support young entrepreneurs and change Canadians' financial habits.
