Asuro GmbH is now a 100% subsidiary of BCA AG. The Oberursler broker pool thus accelerates the rapid development of a holistic and digital process, data and service platform.
With the acquisition of asuro GmbH, BCA AG has decided to expand its in-house IT development work with additional IT capacities. The IT forge founded in 2015 will in future support BCA with in-house software know-how as well as with manpower. As a 100% subsidiary of BCA AG, insuro will remain an independent brand with its own business model.
Former Managing Director Carlo Reiss will continue to bring his more than 30 years of industry expertise and market experience to the BCA Group. “High level of collaboration competence and mutual project experience form the best prerequisites for the implementation of future projects,” says Reiss.
“Together with the IT competence team from BCA, we are doing our utmost to push the development of a holistic digital service platform to the next evolutionary stage,” adds Simon Farr, CTO at asuro. Thus, the new technology offers should contribute to relieving the advisory life of broker partners in all facets in the best possible way.
“Our goal is to expand our DIVA software into a holistic digital process, data and service platform. We are already well on its way with the existing functions.
With asuro, we are clearly gaining speed in the implementation of future developments, “emphasizes BCA board member Christina Schwartmann. “As a target group and cross-company platform, DIVA networks on an equal footing with the two pillars investment and insurance.
New first-class digital service components and consulting tools, which can now be implemented more quickly thanks to the acquisition of asuro, will, therefore, ensure that the consulting efficiency for independent agents will be further optimized, “adds Dr. med. Frank Ulbricht, Chief Executive Officer of BCA and BfV Bank für Vermögen AG. In Oberursel, for example, people are convinced that the importance of financially strong full-service providers such as BCA, which also has first-class digital service, will increase.
“We are very pleased that we have gained an industry-experienced FinTech with the acquisition of asuro. Consequently, we are consequently expanding our development capacities and will also have an even faster implementation speed for future technology projects. In addition, asuro was quickly able to enthuse us about its innovative platform and the system components behind it. This makes it relatively easy to integrate their functionalities into our system landscape.
As a result, we combine the best of two IT worlds. With a comprehensive product range, technical services and personal support, we are one of the leading broker pools and offer all agents ideal solution models for current industry requirements. In this context, investments such as the purchase of asuro help our broker partners to fully concentrate on their actual core competency, the financial and pension advice of their clients, “says Rolf Schünemann, CEO of BCA AG.
