The digital white label solution can be tailored to the financial institution’s own logo and identity allowing customers to associate it with the institution’s brand. The original manufacturer/developer will remain unknown to the end customer. Digital white label solutions can be used for various financial services such as wealth and investment management, retail banking and corporate banking.

First and foremost, it must be acknowledged that the digital-first approach has become a prerequisite for every business to ensure longevity and remain competitive. The need to digitize back-end operations all the way through to the front-end is a necessity in financial services, particularly in wealth and investment management.


Typically, financial institutions will choose to develop these digital platforms in-house. Having attempted to do so, many have found that building a complex solution from zero can be a recipe for disaster. It is a time consuming, costly and prone to error process.


Building one’s own digital solution is an exercise in reinventing the wheel. It radically increases the project time, as it requires troubleshooting and building a learning curve in an area that is not the company's core competency. It is also an inefficient use of resources, as the financial institution will need to search and hire the right talent to develop this digital platform, when solutions are already available elsewhere. Pitfalls in testing the final product such as trial and error cycles can be avoided by simply purchasing a white label solution.


White label solutions, particularly those with customizable features such as those provided by Tradesocio, are both time and cost efficient as it is readily available for use. Time-to-market can be as short as 120 days with a minimum viable product launch in less than 4 weeks. Additionally, white label solutions are generally maintained by the solutions provider. Any issues, bugs or fixes is handled by the developer. A genuine white label solution permits full brand customization making it impossible to tell it apart from a custom-built software.
