Blanco offers a digital banking platform that automates the entire asset management cycle, from client onboarding to securities administration and reporting. Blanco’s technology is Knox’s technology. See Blanco’s platform as your own robo advisor: Blanco’s technology makes asset management less complex, more efficient and therefore reduces costs, while the asset manager is still the one who takes care of the client contact and makes the investment decisions. Blanco, but also at Knox, strongly believes in the fact that financial services cannot be provided without human trust and empathy.

As asset managers, we prefer to work as independently as possible: we all have our own specific ideas about how to generate the best returns, and we prefer to make important investment decisions for our clients ourselves. We believe that this is how our client’s interest is best served – and no one else’s. That’s why we thought it’s time to start our own fully independent custodian service.
