Dear <<First Name>>
 

As one of our friends Ron said, 22 months is the gestation period of an elephant. Well, FinFabrik is one month shy of 22 months and we might take a little longer to deliver something much bigger than an elephant! 

Before going into the thrilling development of this month, we'd like you to take a few moments to review the GDPR (section below) and tell us how you'd like to get information from us.
 
We are extremely honoured to announce that Ben McQuhae has joined us as FinFabrik’s General Counsel as well as board member. Ben is an industry leading lawyer in M&A, joint ventures and a renown leader in green bonds finance.
He was a partner at Jones Day before joining us.
 
This month is full of actions: 
kicking it off by moving our office to Wong Chuk Hang (we’re now sitting in an industrial building turned into chic office spaces next to the only driverless MTR line in Hong Kong), where our growing team can work comfortably in a spacious environment,

followed by 5 speaking engagements on topics around financial innovation and blockchain technology that took place in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen,

concluded by 2 exhibiting events at FIX and HKTDC in Hong Kong over two consecutive weeks, having reached an audience of over a thousand. We gained and exchanged new perspectives, industry updates, and we were particularly happy about the feedback on our latest offering CryptoFabrik.

Found Order in Disorder with CryptoFabrik


Our CryptoFabrik website is LIVE! It will be important for you to be on the waitlist and get updated on the latest product development. A limited free access is given to our valuable friends out there, so please do sign up!

Currently, we are busy delivering CryptoFabrik to our first crypto broker, on top of what we have been building for the individual crypto investors. How can we do this? We have ported over some components from our equities brokerage platform BrokerFabrik to accelerate the delivery to our first crypto broker client. CryptoFabrik’s front-to-back capabilities will be used to replace this crypto broker's existing manual workaround to better serve their end clients in the region.

For businesses who wish to explore collaboration, please write to pros@cryptofabrik.com

GDPR: rethink your right to quality information


We are committed to transparency and openness, particularly around the personal information we hold. While the introduction of GDPR on 25 May 2018 focused on EU member states and nationals, it gave us the opportunity to rethink how and what kind of information we want to receive.

For us, we never spam our friends with excessive emails. Our emails depicting FinFabrik news stories, products, events and offers are meant to bring value to you, as well as keep you posted on our progress as a thriving young company.
 
For you, please be sure that you always have the freedom and accessibility to exercise your right to “Unsubscribe” would you prefer to keep your inbox light; and you can always flick back the “Subscribe” button, or pull stories from our social media. No hard feelings, promised!

FIX + E-Day + FOF18


In case you have missed our stories on social media, here is the recap.
 
We were very fortunate to be recognised and given the opportunity to showcase our CryptoFabrik demo publicly for the very first time at one of the most important capital markets events in the region - 16th FIX event in Hong Kong.  We were the only Fintech startup and non-sponsoring unit amongst all other 19 global vendors and service providers. We received a lot of generous feedback, genuine interest and approval from the traditional capital market guys. Read here and here.

“Powering Startups”, the theme of Entrepreneur Day organised by Hong Kong Trade Development Council, overwhelmed us with the number of enquiries about CryptoFabrik. 3 out of 5 people had the experience or habit of trading cryptocurrencies and they were all looking for tools and services to help them. A small video story there.
 
The Asian Banker hosted a 2-day Future of Finance Summit 2018 in Beijing, where Alex sat on the closing keynote distilling his thoughts on reimagining the new ecosystems of finance. Alex remarked with his signature pink socks, “Innovation is about pushing the limits of the unknown else it is an improvement what we know which is not too exciting. The future of finance is a new paradigm in which I own “me” and I can permission and un-permission the data of “me” to services providers at the flick of a button.”

Team Spotlight: Edward Ngai

 
Each month we ask our colleagues to write about themselves so you may better gauge the personality of FinFabrik. This month we have our Lead Developer Edward. Not only is he an expert in coding and beyond, he is absolutely a thinker.

Q: Who are you?
 
A:

“It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me” (Batman Begins)

I deliver software, acting as both the Lead Developer and Scrum Master.
 

Q: What do you care about?
 
A: 

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” (Albert Einstein)

A product that delivers value to users is more important than successfully deliver a product to users

 

“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” (Bruce Lee)

Focusing on nothing else but to create a product that delivers value to users is what we believe in.

 

“Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future.”. (Walt Disney)

A computer science degree, many years of software development in both financial and non-financial industries are all history that has absolutely no relevance on the probability of a successful delivery of a product that creates value for end users. The sound made by a single drop of water is never as interesting as the roaring sound of an ocean, so I very much look forward to those who are interested in our product, in our company, or simply just want to know more about how we create history together.  You can always contact me at engai@finfabrik.com

On closing


“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun” 
 
- Christopher McCandless

 
Embracing our endlessly changing horizon. Embracing now.
 
Till next time.
 
Fabulously yours,
FinFabrik team
