Sophie: "Selma takes care of everything"
Interview / Clients
Hi, my name is Sophie 👋. I grew up in Switzerland but my roots are in Belgium and England.
At the moment I work as product manager for UBS. Next to that, I am also involved in a foundation in Ethiopia, which provides education for children in need. I love to spend my free time with my friends and loved ones.
What experiences have you had with investing in the past?
To be honest, Selma was my first investment experience. I always thought about starting to invest and even though I knew how to invest in theory, because of my work, I didn't have the courage to get started with it.
I was aware that I should not keep all my savings on a bank account, but at the same time, I was also afraid of doing something wrong.
Selma was my first investment experience.
How did you get to know Selma?
I got to know Selma through LinkedIn. Selma's team contacted me to ask for some early feedback. The message I received was very friendly and catchy. So I took a closer look.
Selma's website gave me a great impression immediately. It was simple, smart and friendly. This was exactly the kind of service that I was missing and looking for. The team took my feedback into account right away. I became Selma's client pretty fast.
What makes Selma different?
Selma is fresher, younger and easier than the rest.
Selma is fresher, younger and easier than the rest. Selma takes care of everything for me so that I don't need to do it. There are no negative surprises as the fees are very clearly presented.
What really made a big difference, for me, was Selma's close contact with customers. Even though it is an online investment service, there is a great foundation of trust as you can easily get to know the team at one of Selma's events.
How should Selma improve?
At the moment, I am very happy with Selma. I think the risk assessment at the start is something that could be tweaked a bit. The chat is already very nice, but the answers depend on your mood and situation.
Could this be improved in a creative way?
🌟 Bonus: Your investment tip
Just start! :) It needs a bit of willpower to finally get started but once you do, you will see that it pays off.
A product manager actively taking a stand for what she believes in. Sophie is one of Selma's great contributors and clients.
