SC Ventures introduces wealth, well being and lifestyle platform


Standard Chartered’s innovation and venture unit has teamed up with asset manager Franklin Templeton to launch a consumer platform for “wealth, health and lifestyle” in Singapore.

The digital platform called Autumn, launched by SC Ventures, is designed to help clients prepare for old age by providing a range of tools, products and services on all aspects of wealth, health and lifestyle.

Autumn’s mobile app helps users gain financial clarity by bringing their banking, investment, insurance and health data together into a single dashboard. Users can plan their financial future with personalized aspirations and goals, scenario analysis, and portfolio stress tests before executing their plan by transacting across multiple product providers and asset classes.

Franklin Templeton will be an asset management partner providing users with access to curated financial literacy content. Autumn users can choose to get insights into their model portfolio based on their risk profile and financial data.

SC Ventures says that by using data from wearable and third-party health applications, it will also provide insights into how a user’s lifestyle choices are likely to affect their retirement savings. Fall will also bring lifestyle partners on board, including travel services and volunteering.

It is planned to introduce the fall in Hong Kong and other Asian markets.

Mike Kruger, Autumn CEO, said, “By combining digital wealth technology with health, lifestyle and financial wellbeing, we are helping users adopt healthier habits and create a more tailored retirement.”
