This year, the international group Forward You was awarded the European prize for the bestlong-term savings and investment product of 2022.

International investment products tailored to each and every profile

Every contract FWU concludes contains investments that are not only tailored to a client’s investor profile but also to his expectations and plans, both in the short and in the medium term.

The company has put numerous innovative solutions in place to give its clients every chance of securing a return on their investment.

The proposals made by insurance brokers are not based on human and subjective evaluations but on accurate investment data.

The deliberations of the Forward You Group are in fact based on one of its creations: the Forward Quant algorithm.

  1. Fine-tuned by the FWU teams of experts, this algorithm paces investment decisions.

  2. It allows the group to adopt an aggressive or prudent strategy, in function of investors’ preferences and their budget.

  3. Based on past figures and constant market study, this algorithm monitors investments so that they can be modified throughout the lifetime of the contract.

It is this algorithmic basis that allows them to offer unique contracts, tailored to each client.

Risk-taking, duration of the contract, objectives to be achieved: Forward Quant takes all these factors into account to offer investors bespoke investment products.

A long-term investment group, a forerunner of innovation

What distinguishes Forward You from the other contenders for the prize of the best long-term investment at European level in 2022 is the group’s capacity to anticipate technological innovations.

FWU’s IT experts and life-insurance brokers work side by side to maximise savers’ satisfaction and optimise their investments.

FWU was also able to harness its sense of innovation during the Covid-19 health crisis.

Within the space of a few weeks, the group had its system to sign contracts online up and running to prevent that investors would be impacted by the worldwide lockdown.

Today, all paper-based contracts have been replaced by digital procedures.

This digitalisation has not only allowed Forward You to attract investors based in Munich, where its head office is situated, but also savers across Europe, the Middle East and East Asia.

Aside from making life insurance available across lots of countries, FWU’s technological innovations ensure an optimum client experience.
