In today's dynamic business landscape, staying ahead of the competition requires innovation and a forward-thinking approach. One such avenue that businesses are increasingly exploring is integrating investment products within their platforms. This strategic move not only enhances the value proposition for customers but also opens up new revenue streams and fosters long-term customer engagement. In this blog post, we delve into the strategic value of embedding an investment product in your platform.

What is embedded investments?

Embedded investments refer to the integration of investment products or financial instruments (like Money Market Funds, Treasury Bills, Fixed Income Securities, Equities) directly within other platforms, be them finance related or not. Instead of end users needing to visit a separate financial institution or platform to access investment opportunities, they can engage with these opportunities seamlessly within your platform. Embedded Investment solutions can also reduce the burden of registering with the respective authorities and lower compliance and risk management resource needs. So it is a full turnkey solution.

The Strategic rationale of embedding an Investment product

There are a number of reasons why a company should consider adding an investment product into their product suite. Some of these reasons can be specific to a sub-industry niche but the following 5 reasons apply to a number of industries. 

  1. Diversification of Revenue Streams: By integrating investment products, companies can diversify their revenue streams beyond their core services. This diversification not only opens up new avenues for income but also creates resilience against market fluctuations in core business areas.
  2. Increase customer LTV: By providing users with diverse services, including investment opportunities, you can create a deeper and more enduring relationship. Customers engaged in both your core offerings and investment products may be more likely to remain loyal for an extended period. This prolonged customer relationship not only secures revenue over time but also presents opportunities for additional sales and upselling, contributing significantly to the overall increase in Customer LTV. As users continue to invest and engage with your platform, the cumulative value they bring to your business grows, solidifying the strategic importance of this integration.
  3. Enhanced Customer Engagement and Loyalty: Offering investment options within your platform enhances the overall customer experience. It can help keep users engaged, fostering loyalty and reducing the need for customers to seek these services elsewhere.
  4. Strategic Positioning in the Market: Companies that embed investment products strategically position themselves as financial solution providers. This not only attracts a wider customer base but also positions the company as forward-thinking, adaptable, and in tune with evolving market demands.
  5. Competitive Edge in Customer Acquisition: In industries such as banking and fintech, embedding investment products provides a competitive edge. It attracts customers looking for integrated financial solutions, especially the millennial demographic seeking seamless experiences and holistic services from their financial institutions.

In conclusion, embedding investment products in your platform goes beyond mere financial transactions; it opens up a realm of strategic possibilities. From diversifying revenue streams to enhancing customer engagement and attracting new users, the benefits are manifold. In an increasingly competitive business environment, the strategic value of integrating investment products cannot be overstated. By embracing this trend, businesses can position themselves as not just service providers but as comprehensive solutions for their customers' diverse needs, ensuring long-term success and resilience.
