Privé Technologies Acquires Digital Engagement Start-Up Hive Up

On January 8, 2019 (Hong Kong/Singapore)

Qiuyan Tian, the CEO and co-founder of Hive Up, commented, “Privé will be able to help us accelerate our mission of bring wealth management to the masses. I am elated to adopt their proficiency in FinTech to propel our ideas to much greater heights.”

Charles Wong, CEO and co-founder of Privé Holdings, noted, CEO and co-founder of Privé Technologies, noted, “We are excited to have Hive Up join our family of companies and believe its expertise in the mass affluent and wealth management segments contributes to Prive’s mission to bring wealth management to all.”

Hive Up operates in both the enterprise and direct-to-consumer segments. With respect to the end consumer, it focuses on highlighting financial concepts and engaging the everyday person via mediums such as articles, infographics, workshops, and webinars. For enterprise businesses, the company builds management platforms and client-facing applications for financial advisors. Hive Up also writes curriculum and conducts training for financial institutions, injecting life and vigor into otherwise prosaic financial content, while also using technology for enhanced hands-on engagement.

Ms. Tian started Hive Up in 2016 with a mission of wanting to bring wealth management to the masses. Having cut her teeth in the wealth management sector with Goldman Sachs and an established family office, she was convinced that she could bring the same tools and access that had only previously been available in the high net worth segment to anybody.

Ms. Tian believes that the two keys to a successful financial journey are financial literacy and practical handles. With the experience of successfully building two prior startups, her mandate for Hive Up is to demystify the seemingly complicated world of finance by breaking it down into engaging and palatable content.

The ethos on how Hive Up creates its content is based on the pillars of design thinking, psychology, and technology, which incorporates AI and machine learning to intelligently curate content and make financial learning more engaging, tailored and personalized.

The acquisition of Hive Up – following Privé Technologies’ recent selection by Deloitte as one of the top 20 fastest growing technology firms in Asia – further cements Privé’s position as a leader and one of the most recognized and awarded FinTech companies in the industry.

Digitization in the field of personal finance is becoming more salient. We need to explore creative and cutting-edge ways to help the financial literacy challenge for the aspiring investor, as well as develop new value proposition solutions for wealth managers in today’s digital age.

Privé Technologies is also the firm behind the award-winning Privé Managers platform for global wealth and asset managers. Prior awards for Privé Technologies include being selected as the 2018 FinTech Changemaker of the Year sponsored by Asian Private Banker, 2018 Most Innovative FinTech Solution sponsored by Wealth Briefing Asia, as well as a finalist in the Hong Kong-based 2018 DBS Accelerator and Supercharger Accelerator programs. Privé Technologies was also voted as the number one robo-advisor in Asia amongst 16 robo-advisories in a recent independent study by Kaplan.
