FINTICS is the annual leading event of the Association of German Credit Platforms eV (VdK) for digital financing and investing. We network you with the relevant stakeholders from politics, supervision, media and the alternative financing scene.

Digital finance enables private and institutional investors to invest in private, corporate or municipal loans and generate attractive returns. On the other hand, private debt gives companies, consumers and municipalities quick and equally attractive access to alternative financing offers. Online marketplaces improve the supply of financing capital, promote financial participation and make a positive economic contribution in a phase in which banks are increasingly withdrawing as traditional financing partners.
