Additionally, FinVest offers a curated client experience,
including an enhanced design as well as user-friendly and
mobile-friendly screen flows. In designing
the mobile app, Lu International and KASIKORNBANK prioritise the needs of retail
investors. These include the ability to make informed investment

International and KASIKORNBANK in collaboration with Robowealth, a wealth-tech and investment
specialist and investment solutions provider in Thailand. The ultimate goal of this
collaboration is to make sure of the best investment journey to all investors.

Kit Wong, CEO of Lu International, commented, “Digital technology is rapidly changing the way investors

efficiency, intelligence, and ease of use through a personalised online wealth
management platform that will help Thailand and its economy stay at the
forefront of the digital financial revolution taking place across the region.”

Mr. Patchara Samalapa, KASIKORNBANK President, said, “In 2020, Thailand’s total outstanding capital market value
is worth around 44 trillion baht. Of this amount, investment in mutual funds
totals 4.8 trillion baht or around 10 percent. Of late, the younger generation
has shown increasing interest in mutual funds, preferring to conduct
transactions via digital channels and seeking products related to Thai and
foreign equity instruments. Moreover, open-architecture investment is growing
every year. Development of the FinVest digital platform will help enhance investment
potential for Thai retail investors, allowing them to directly invest in global
mutual funds via FinVest”. 


“FinVest marks a cooperative effort towards digital technology
development; KASIKORNBANK, which has
extensive digital banking expertise; Lu International — a Singapore-based company
under Lufax Holding, which is an associate of Ping An Group — a large Chinese
company with a team of world-class experts well-versed in investment
technology; and Robowealth Mutual Fund Brokerage Securities Co., Ltd., an
expert in wealth tech, ensuring that the FinVest platform is in alignment with
the Thai capital market under the supervision of the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Thailand. This cooperation also reinforces KASIKORNBANK’s status as a complete banking service provider, based on a
combination of its own digital banking expertise and that of the world’s
leading partners and fintech experts, to ensure that KASIKORNBANK is everywhere
around you”.
