It has been 1634 days since the head of the second largest German direct bank DKB, Stefan Unterlandst├Ąttner, first reported on his robo-advisor plans. “We’re looking at it and have already had discussions with providers,” he said at the balance sheet press conference on March 22, 2017. So pretty much exactly four and a half years ago.

Then the market leader Scalable Names like Quirion were also circulating – before private customer boss Thilo Hacke then raised Elinvar again in May 2019.
