UK FinTech Delio, the leading white-label platform for private assets, is expanding into the Benelux region in a response to high demand.

The firm, headquartered in Cardiff, Wales launched in 2015 and has already experienced fast growth, opening offices in London and now Brussels. Working with a range of firms from small family offices and corporate finance boutiques all the way through to global financial institutions and investment organisations, across the UK, EU and Switzerland.

To help service its growing base across Benelux, Delio is now recruiting for a senior country manager to head up the region and build a local team as it looks to double its headcount across Europe from 10 to 20 staff by the end of this year.

David Newman, co-founder and COO of Delio, said: “We’ve seen a real appetite for our platform in Benelux with demand growing as fast as it is in the UK. As we expand our presence, we want to demonstrate our commitment to service our customers with a local team of experts dedicated to the region. Brussels is also a natural gateway to Europe and has a deep talent pool and infrastructure. This, combined with the fantastic support we have received to date in Belgium, from ING Fintech Village through to B-Hive, makes a Brussels office a logical next step in our ambitious growth strategy.”

With its bespoke white-label platform, Delio is a complete private asset solution for financial institutions, allowing them to create and deliver a structured and compliant offering linking investors with direct investment opportunities in a way which works for them. Developed specifically to the requirements of each individual financial institution, the white-label platform links high-net worth and ultra-high net worth investors with a diverse range of private deals in areas such as equity, debt and real estate - deals a new generation of wealth creators have had limited access to until now.

Gareth Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Delio, added: “We created Delio in direct response to the growing appetite for new, distinct opportunities among high-net worth investors. It’s this appetite which is disrupting the industry spurring financial institutions to shake-up the way they currently engage with investors and the deals they offer them. Investors are increasingly becoming more entrepreneurial; looking for direct investment deals and hands-on projects alongside a rising trend for impact investing which deliver philanthropic as well as financial returns. Until now, this need has been unmet and we’re pioneering a new approach through FinTech innovation, becoming the go-to firm providing the solution. And with strong organic growth, we’re very excited about what the future holds.”
