Coherra weekend workshop – creating intelligence and connections
During the weekend of 6-8th March, Coherra hosted a workshop for some of the employees abroad. We welcomed people from all over the world – the United States, the United Kingdom, Central Europe, and Asia. Some were present in Copenhagen, some we had to excuse because of travel bans being in place – but we are happy that they could join in online.
We would like to thank everybody for contributing – it is what makes the services and value proposition of Coherra beyond state-of-the-art.
We look forward to sharing all this information with our customers and partners in different locations – stay tuned!
Right now, there are two black swans – the coronavirus and a financial meltdown. They may be highly correlated and affected by each other. What is clear is that they are happening at the same time, and the impacts on the financial world are major.
We enable the investors to access video content from the smartest minds among asset managers. We allow them to share their insights and distribute them to new platforms and through various institutions directly to the communities where investors operate.
What we have seen in the past few days is that the financial markets are starting to react to the threat of the coronavirus in a severe way.
Investors naturally want to know what is important and what their next course of action should be.
What they need is a direct approach and story.
Coherra will offer hundreds of asset managers – people who are investing themselves – explaining exactly what they are doing in a dynamic and engaging way – through video content.
But they should be able to reach anybody with their explanation of the situation. In that way, they can make use of this communication tool to reach their customers – and engage new ones.
Keeping investors informed is key. But so is engagement and connecting.
Let’s do both with Coherra.
The power of video, the power of connections – the power of COHERRA
The Coherra Pioneer Program creates a network where different parties can be introduced and gain new, beneficial partnerships.
- 20.02.2020Coherra creates connections.
Our strength lies in our network. And the innovative driven members of the Coherra Pioneer Program confirm it.
Recognizing their respective edge, we connected two like-minded pioneers who are changing the future of asset management but with two very different approaches. Innolab with distinct AI focus on investment selection technology and Noviscient with a unique gateway for institutional investors to get diversification and alpha generation.
Thanks to the Coherra Pioneer Program, they both enjoy the benefits of a successful partnership documenting that connectivity is far greater than the sum of its parts.
Embrace the digital age – embrace video storytelling
The future of the investing world is digital – and video-based. There will be almost 5 billion Internet users in 2022 and video viewing will represent 82% of online traffic.

COHERRA can help you connect and grow
Read the article about how Coherra’s pioneer program helped to connect a tech company in Copenhagen with a hedge fund in Singapore.
On the last European business trip of the year, Rasmus Grønning and I went to Paris meeting with local AM houses managing 40+ funds and EUR 50+ bln in AUM. There is no question that France represent a significant market by itself and we will come back to meet partners for distribution of connectivity and relevance in the investor / fund manager space.
The Coherra Pioneer program already include 25+ managers ranging from 5 mln to 1 trln in AUM and have connected a number of investment specialist and allocators with innovation and digital driven solutions for their investors.
for the hospitality and for listening @ Coherra in 2019.

AMAZONIZATION of the financial industry??
Interesting interview with Fidelity’s Mike Durbin on WealthTech.
Tools for personalization in the financial distribution are being created and
COHERRA is a leap for the financial advisors to deliver an edge with precision.
Great article and pretty much in sync with the WHY 💡 we started the Apollo effort 🗼 and founded COHERRA FinTech some 3 years ago.
The financial industry experience tectonic changes and will look enormously different in the very near future. The behavioral patterns of investors and expectations towards the industry is way ahead of the current offering.
We took a moon shot and set the course to position @COHERRA as the data leader bringing intelligence and precision into the distribution layer of the asset management industry. In the past 6 months we have witnessed an industry acknowledgement and a total rethink of new comers. Winners will require much more than a change of narrative – It’s a fundamental change in delivering access and connectivity through digitization and partnerships – in the best interest of asset allocators / investors and asset seekers / asset managers.
A number of new investors and partnerships is joining us in these months and we are looking forward to share our 2020 outlook soon.
COHERRA’s ambitions are fueled by the adoption and support from our Pioneer Partners. Join our mission in Open Finance delivering access and connectivity for investors.
Financial services firms, in many cases, “need to recognize that content on social is a very different thing to social content”, according to Damian Horner of Real Vision. He continues:
“Social channels are no longer social – they are business channels. Many brands currently treat business channels in a social way – they try to speak in the same tone and in the same language as their perceived audience. The problem is that it’s as convincing as watching your uncle try to fit in with his much younger nieces and nephews at a family wedding by doing break dancing”.
Join Coherra at the Social Media in Finance conference in London 2020, where strategies for platforms and social in Finance will take center stage.
Teres Global joins the Coherra Pioneer Program to add intelligence into their financial distribution operation,
With more than 200 years of combined experience in asset management distribution and currently 8 individually market focused funds for whom they raise capital it is yet another significant milestone for COHERRA to include Teres Global, @Nicolas Thomet in our COHERRA Pioneer Program.
The determination for bringing data intelligence into the Teres Global operation is a perfect match for COHERRA – Further it demonstrate our B2B scale model through partnerships.

Every moment in business happens only once. Ours happened 2 years ago as we saw a capital markets industry locked in its old ways while the internet, mobile, video streaming and machine learning were already unlocking massive value and changing the playing fields across many other industries.
So we set out to reimagine how investment products are distributed, discovered and presented. We set out to envision a different and better future, bringing down the barriers between asset managers and investors and raising the bar for the way we engage one another. A future in which asset managers compete on relevant and inspiring investor engagement and unique investor insights, and where investors seamlessly access a global pool of relevant investment opportunities, perspectives and insights delivered in fresh and engaging formats.
Amazingly two years have already passed since our inception. Today, we have on-boarded 15 asset managers and 8 banks and brokers onto our platform. And we are really just getting started. Building upon the playbooks of Netflix, Spotify and LinkedIn, Coherra is poised to become the platform that brings together the global capital markets community to unlock new value for all participants. With a critical mass of actors and activity on Coherra, asset managers will be able to determine what investment products they should be offering to which segments, and how they should position these to convert investors. Investors will be able to discover new opportunities and relevant investment themes without drowning in noise, based on our understanding of their preferences, interests and goals. And other players in the eco-system such as business media and financial advisors will be able to source and provide content, and develop their businesses based on data-driven customer segmentation, trend identification and engagement optimization powered by Coherra data.
Ole Rossing, CIO of CFH Markets and TradeTech Group is joining the advisory board of COHERRA FinTech.
It has taken numerous conversations about the transformation of the brokerage & banking industry and where COHERRA’s communication platform and data intelligence can deliver a competitive edge to a new digital realm.
Ole has a unique combination of skillsets and a stellar track record. He has a very deep technical understanding, a curious and bold mindset combined with common sense of how to develop a variable business model around it.
Ole was fundamental to the technological development of Saxo Bank where he worked together with COHERRA founder, Soren Haestrup . With his team Ole build one of the first trading platforms for currencies when none existed and for an industry he had no experience in. From building the technological tracks of a now USD 1.5 bln market value bank Ole continued to a FinTech start-up, CFH Markets in 2008. They successfully sold the company to PlayTech group for USD 125 mln in 2016 and Ole is today CIO in CFH Group and CFH Systems and the head of IT security in the buyer, TradeTech Group.
Soren Haestrup, Founder:
“ I’m sincerely excited about having Ole onboard. Ole was leading the IT team on the floor downstairs from the trading floor in Saxo Bank where I was working. For years we had very little idea of what magic Ole and his team was creating downstairs. From a traders perspective the general understanding was that the money made upstairs was blindly being thrown down the staircase to a very smart and quiet bunch of people. Secondly that we shouldn’t challenge them in math. It was the very transformation of our business and within years they outgrew us not only in numbers of employees but accelerated the revenue and reach. We have stayed in contact since our Saxo Bank days and I’m confident that what Ole also sees in COHERRA is something that will initially compliment and later change an industry. An industry in a circular transformation and that we both know in detail”.
Expanding reach & industry knowledge.
COHERRA will attend the TechBBQ between 18-19th September in Copenhagen.
We connect with speakers, companies and partners and discuss how COHERRA creates intelligence and precision within the distribution layer of financial services.
COHERRA is Münich bound.
It has been a massive week with a number of new strategic partnerships, asset managers joining our network and industry leading subscribing to our pioneer program. We will soon be introducing them to our network.
Through the lens of evolution theory is all about value creation fueled by intelligence – knowledge comes from engagement. It’s the most adoptive species surviving not the biggest, fastest or strongest. Our new partners range from single manager offices to multi bln dollar blue chip names – On the same evolutionary path.
We are looking forward to share much more details on how we build and engage in a trust dependent eco system. Thank you all for getting onboard.
Our new employee Philip Kopman in Miami had a vicious hurricane visiting his office and had to evacuate his family to midland on his first week at work. Philip is back and ready to serve his community and business development.

In Coherra, Rasmus will support us in the areas of strategy for scale, strategic capital raising and developing partnerships.
“I am super excited about joining the Coherra team. The idea is brilliant, and the platform will unlock massive new opportunities, insights and value for investors and asset managers as well as the larger financial eco-system. I think of how platforms and aggregators like LinkedIn, YouTube, Netflix and Spotify have completely reshaped and transformed their industries. Then I imagine Coherra doing the same for investing over the next 10 years – platforming it, democratizing it, individualizing it, socializing it, adding intelligence, relevance and even fun to it. In my view, it’s one of those ideas where there’s no end in sight in terms of its potential”.
Is a shock coming in Equities?
Eye Performance, one of our Pioneer members in COHERRA announced last week a rebalance of its Systematic Allocation Model. Last time we saw Mads Pedersen implementing risk reduction in his algo based equity allocation model was back in September and October 2018 and we witness a dramatic quarter following.

COHERRA KEEPS GROWING – Based in Florida, Philip Kopman joins Coherra from a position as Global Head FX eCommerce at Santander Global Banking and Markets.
Philip has more than 18 years of experience in the banking industry and as a technology leader with deep vertical insights. He will work between the Copenhagen business dev team and our New York tech center.
Coherra instantly gains strength and Philip will immediately be a motor growing our relationship with asset managers and other key stakeholders.
The ecosystem for intelligence and research is changing. On the Coherra platform fund managers, specialists and thought leaders present their insights and analysis directly to the most relevant audience. Our filtering mechanism match investment profiles with investment opportunities so time is not wasted and no opportunity is missed.
Now take all this and apply it to the financial services Industry and research and analyses in particular. Coherra thinks like Netflix, with a mission to connect investors with the most relevant investment opportunities, made possible thanks to AI.
A new study by Greenwich underlines the transition to digital content consumption in the investing world. Highlights: 86% of investors say they take action on content they receive, with 41% doing so at least weekly. 59% of respondents spent on average 15–30 minutes reading a single piece of content, showing that long-form content still works.
But one thing will never change: Investors are always on the hunt for content that will bring them to the next level. COHERRA is the platform that takes them there.
‘The big question now and in the years to come is whether customers will trust the banks to keep, use and manage their data’. A new Coherra article, debating the edge of data usage vs. protection and ethics.
The holiday season is not over yet but our COHERRA product and customer team continue to deliver value for our Pioneer Partners.
We are proud that the esteemed VC investor Dmitry Alimov and his team from Silicon Valley, Frontier Ventures have chosen COHERRA to expand their reach when raising another USD 100M for their second fund.

#reach #edge #relevance
After a series of meetings with #investors and clients in Zürich yesterday, Søren Haestrup visited an old colleague from Saxo Bank, Frederik Gregaard in PwC Innovation.
It is not a regular PwC office to say the least and the ambitions and drive Frederik has infused to this giant is impressive.
PwC Innovation has been building multiple digital banks, robo-advisors, virtual reality car sales software and much more so it made perfect sense to test the COHERRA vision with Frederik.
Synchronicity was clear, vision and approach aligned. We really look forward working closer with PwC innovation in Zürich and picking the brain of Frederik.

We are grateful and delighted to be invited to Scandinavian Night Event at The Balanchine Lounge – Hotel Nimb.
Our CEO Søren Haestrup attended this excellent opportunity to connect and network with new and old colleagues in the fund industry.
Fintech is thriving and Coherra is looking forward to connect with partners and innovators in our hometown of Copenhagen.
Last week, COHERRA advisor Dianna Raedle (Harvard MBA 1993) & Daniel Morrel from Harvard Business School discussed the Bitcoin phenomenon. Cryptocurrency has now become an integral asset in macro-economics, infrastructure and investment portfolios.
As COHERRA expands to provide financial services to the asset management industry through our entry to the US market, we are excited by the great work that Dianna Raedle and Deer Isle Group, LLC continue to create.
With only 2 working days in Stockholm we only saw a glance of what this thriving business scene has to offer. What we did meet was innovators in corporate finance building bridges to Germany to deliver value and leverage on the strong stock market culture in Sweden. We saw a Family office investment attitude (in diversification) matching international peers – and a thriving fintech scene who now has a new association in #Findec to secure collaboration, communication and funding for the Swedish fintech eco system.
We look forward to see many of them back across the bridge to Denmark for the CPH Fintech Week.
COHERRA’s CEO, Soren Haestrup will be in Stockholm, Sweden meeting partners, investors and innovators June 3rd and 4th.
We talk about the digitalization, content aggregators, taxonomy, value for investors and future distribution models in the asset management sector.

Coherra matches Saxo Bank content directly to a preferred audience from the recent event ‘Gateway to China’ about the outlook and opportunities in financial markets.
Update from the 20th and 21st March in London.
KYC level 2.0.
The leaders within asset management will initiate new services and cater to their investors at a whole new level. This need became blatantly clear during the presentations and our meetings in London. Going forward true differentiation will not be anchored in products alone, rather, targeted content and actionable data points for decision making will likely be the main levers behind brand differentiation and strategic positioning.
COHERRA’s CEO @Søren Haestrup met with BlackRock to discuss the future of distribution, data intelligence for segmentation and customer engagement, and the ever increasing need for relevant content from 3rd party platforms such as Coherra. The need for targeted content and analysis is growing rapidly, a trend BlackRock as the World’s largest asset manager recognize in full.
BlackRock are on a mission to become the dominant provider of analytics for the global investment industry + increase its revenues from technology. Shortly after our meeting in London BlackRock announced a USD 1,3bn acquisition of French analytics company eFront and showed just how serious they are about 3rd party analytics- and content platforms.
Update from the 20th and 21st March in London.
COHERRA lost the tie in technologies. Our CEO, Soren Haestrup met with old friends and colleagues in London for the Saxo Bank Conference about the Gateway to China.

Klaus-Michael Christensen, president of SIIA announced in December 2018 that “SIIA/Coherra’s digital media platform is the ideal storytelling platform for entrepreneurs to explain the impact in “impact investment” to impact investors and will become the preferred platform for impact investors to present their impact demands for their investment capital. It is SIIA’s endeavour to provide a platform that will enable investors to easily find profitable investment opportunities that they are passionate about thereby accelerating impact in our society
