Bambu is a business-to-business financial robo-advisory software firm based in Singapore. Launched in February 2016, the company’s white label solution automates the process of financial planning, saving, and investing for consumers – on desktop and mobile.
How it compares to competitors: While most robo-advisors have one product with a specific target customer, Bambu offers three different products: one for savings, one for investments, and one for private banking. It claims its product diversity will allow it to target more potential applications and a larger pool of clients.
Bambu says it has generated about US$300,000 in revenue in the first five months after its launch. The company, which raised seed funding last year, has also managed to sign up notable business players, including Thomson Reuters, Tigerspike, Finantix, and Eigencat.
