Bankia has attracted more than 1 billion euros during the first ten months of the year in its portfolio management service, called 'Bankia Expert Management'. Thanks to this, this services reaches over €3 billion for the first time.

In addition, the bank has enabled online contracting of this service on the App and 'Bankia On Line', the bank's internet office.

Bankia’s professional management team will do it on their behalf", says Rocío Eguiraun, director of Bankia Asset Management.

In order to adapt channels to the operation of this online service, the entity has made a series of adjustments to its marketing through offices. This has reduced the minimum investment for digital contracts from 10,000 to 1,000 euros.

It has also adjusted the fees: digitally contracted portfolios with less than 10,000 euros in assets (the minimum amount to contract the service at an office) will be exempt from paying the 8% success fee on the return achieved. They will only be subject to a management fee of 0.20% of the cash value of the portfolio, with a minimum of 10 euros if this value is less than 5,000 euros.

When signing up to 'Bankia Expert Management', the first step that must be carried out by the interested party will be to complete the 'Suitability Test', which is displayed on the screen. The investor will have to answer the corresponding questionnaire to determine their risk profile. Once completed, the system notifies the customer of the recommended portfolio. At this point in the process, the interested party may select any of the portfolios with a risk profile equal to or lower than the result of the test.

As from that moment, the customer may make subscriptions and redemptions at any time through the bank’s digital channels, both the App and the Internet office, called 'Bankia On Line'.

Users of 'Bankia Expert Management' can use the online channels to access all the information about the performance of their portfolio. This includes the performance of the managed assets, the appreciation obtained, the volatility at different maturities, the net assets of the portfolio, their distribution by the different types of assets, historical evolution, level of risk, funds invested and their composition, costs or the contributions and reimbursements made, among other data.

Moreover, the report will contain a comment from the manager, including an explanation of what happened in the last month, changes in the composition of the portfolio and its forecast for the coming months.

"With this initiative we are taking another step forward in the bank’s digital transformation, improving customer experience, with an advanced advisory model that allows better understanding and optimal monitoring of the investment made, and by reducing the minimum investment, we provide access to all customers to benefit from this professional management service", highlighted Elena del Pozo, director of Online Channels and Self-Service at Bankia.
