About the deal
vaamo is one of the very first German independent digital wealth managers and launched in 2014. Founded by Thomas Bloch and Oliver Vins, vaamo is a pioneer in introducing goal-based investing and offers regulated fully-managed discretionary portfolios. Over the last years, vaamo has built both a direct to consumer and a B2B offering for (online) banks and independent financial advisors.
The acquisition allows Moneyfarm to leverage vaamo’s foothold in the German market and to accelerate its entrance into Germany, now representing the third European market being covered besides Italy and UK. Thus, it presents the opportunity to expand the Moneyfarm business proposition further across Europe for companies and financial institutions looking to offer digital investment advice on fully-managed portfolios to their employees or customers.
The parties announced to continue the combined business under one brand.
