FinTech Made in Switzerland is the first documentary about the rapidly growing FinTech movement in Switzerland. The film includes interviews with startup entrepreneurs, investors, bankers, and politicians who participate in the evolution of the Swiss financial sector. Digitization will influence the future of Switzerland as a banking hub. The film is a time capsule of the current state of the new digital financial sector at a crucial turning point.

Filmmaker Manuel Stagars conducted over 60 hours of conversations with movers and shakers in Switzerland’s largest banks and startups. In the process, a clear message emerged: Switzerland has the know-how and entrepreneurial talent to be a leader in FinTech, but to get to the next level, new and old players in the financial sector need to meet at eye level and collaborate. The film is optimistic that banks, established tech companies and startups will succeed by placing the needs of customers at the center of financial services again.

The film features stars of the Swiss FinTech scene including experts from UBS, Credit Suisse, Raiffeisen, Cantonal Banks, Swisscom or PostFinance and investors and founders of fast-growing startups such as Advanon, Bexio, Bitcoin Suisse and others.
