Congratulations to Harvest CEO Peter Hans for being named 10 to Watch in 2017 by wealthmanagement.com. Thank you!
Harvest Exchange essentially creates a two-sided marketplace, with high net worth individuals and family offices on one side, and the investment managers who want to reach them on the other, linked by a content platform. Investment managers post their market outlooks, educational materials and whitepapers freely, and potential clients can take advantage of a wide array of filtering options in order to find the type of investments or education they are looking for. Similar to certain dating apps, investment managers can’t communicate with potential clients unless the client contacts them first.
“We want to help providers share and syndicate the value proposition that they provide so that the most relevant audience can access that information and start to build a relationship.” Says Hans.
The dating app parallels don’t end there; for Hans, “relationships” are at the center of his philosophy not just for harvest exchange, but the future of all fintech.
“Using technology to empower and build human relationships is the future. There was a lot of concern in the past over technology displacing the human component, but this will always be an industry where human interaction is at the center of the business. The real opportunity is leveraging technology to help build relationships and partnerships.”
