VERMEG launches CUSTODIX HUB in partnership with LUXHUB
VERMEG is glad to partner with Open Finance pioneer LUXHUB around collecting and processing custodian data available to insurance companies. The two companies officially launched a new product on November 2022: CUSTODIX HUB.
Through the combined tech expertise and industry knowledge of both partners, CUSTODIX HUB facilitates the flows and financial data exchanges between custodian banks and insurance companies, in a trusted and secure environment provided by LUXHUB. The two companies also announced a successful POC (Proof of Concept) with a leading player in Luxembourg.
“Data collection represents a high cost due to the multiplicity of custodians, the use of multiple formats, and the volume of transactions or the number of failures that require corrections,” explains Eric Bemelmans, Digital Transformation Director at VERMEG.
“The insurance sector could greatly benefit from this innovative partnership by gaining significant time when collecting data from depositary banks, drastically improving the customer experience, and pleasing their end-clients with a unique and efficient service,” concludes Claude Meurisse, COO, LUXHUB.

Low-Code No-Code (LCNC), a verticalized platform to accelerate Digital Transformation for “tailor-made” solutions
Generic Digitalization is not just about Client experience, it is the way to address financial services sector challenges and needs: Demanding clients, intrusive and more robust regulation, margin pressure, and siloed organization. Insurance and Banks must adapt across all the value chains and organizations.
Generic platforms or development frameworks only scratch the surface when Financial Services companies need a mission-critical business-focused approach.
In partnership with AILANCY, VERMEG is pleased to present a webinar entitled: Low-code/No-code platforms as an accelerator of digital transformation. You can exclusively attend the testimony of Benoît De Lestrange, Deputy Director of Digital Services at Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance (SOFINCO), about VERMEG’s LCNC platform usage!
