Geneva, 7 December 2020 – Gonet & Cie SA is pleased to announce that it is joining the Wecan Group and its innovative Wecan Comply project, a digital platform for data exchange between independent asset managers and custodian banks that is currently in the launch phase.
Launched last October and now involving a dozen or so players in the financial sector, Wecan Comply (https://wecancomply.com/) was developed with the aim of simplifying the multiple interactions between banks and independent asset managers, reducing the workload associated with all compliance processes and sharing information in real time.

technology will be a key factor in the development of relations between financial and technological providers.
