Andreas Schalm

“The finance sector has to redefine itself to offer simpler, intuitive, customized and customer-friendly solutions. Like in other industries, this will only happen if disruptors enter and redesign the market. I believe that YAPEAL has the true potential as a new competitor to make a decisive difference in re-thinking the finance industry. I am therefore proud to be a brand ambassador of Yapeal and part of this challenging but exciting journey.”

Andreas von Rosen

“Technology has changed the way how we navigate our car, buy books, and communicate globally. It’s long overdue that it changes our way how we handle money: YAPEAL!”

Antal Balvinszky

“Payment is changing very fast. Disruptive operating models are defining new rules and are reshaping the playing field of financial institutions. I am excited to be part of this journey with YAPEAL which will be the new reality in digital payment.”

Arno Andreas Schmidt

“I want to improve and change the traditional way the finance industry operates, especially in a new, transparent and effective way. Therefore I am proud to be part of the journey with YAPEAL!”

Cristina Bueno

“Digital financial service providers embrace sophisticated technology to provide straightforward solutions. As such, they have the potential to radically transform the financial services industry and more importantly, re-shape the customer experience. The company of the future is digital, intuitive, customer-centric, efficient and most importantly, accessible to all. I am honored to be a part of this journey.“

Daniel Estermann

“Financial institutions are finally starting to become customer-centric! A great mobile experience is key, but focusing on financial products and transactions is not enough. It’s all about deeper customer needs like surviving from one payday to the next. Or about learning how to control expenditure and save money every day. It’s an honor to help Yapeal on this journey with my app and UX knowhow!”

Dominic Meyer

“I am fascinated by the vision of transferring Switzerland’s traditional financial system to our constantly evolving and modern society. That is why I am committed to designing the digital wallet of the future at YAPEAL. I’m a Yapster!”

Janic Rüegg

„Technology is already a crucial part of our lives and will become more and more important. Especially in the financial sector where Switzerland has a reputation to lose it’s great to have promising startups like YAPEAL. The era of digital financial services will come and it’s great to be a part of this progress!“

Jelena Jakovleva

“Daring, ambitious and yet humble – YAPEAL brings mobile payment right into your smartphone in simple and easy manner, while putting you always first. YAPEAL sparks a digital life into Swiss finance industry, and I am excited to be part of this journey.”

Jonas Epp

“Financial services are crucial for our lifes. With YAPEAL we have the chance to make it not just a necessity, but a pleasure. YAPEAL truly combines a client centric approach with the latest technology and thus offering an amazing customer experience. I am excited to contribute to YAPEALs success so that people get perfectly customised, transparent and seamless services. Let’s start the journey now!”

Jürg Brassel

“Swiss financial services, reinvented for the digital age! I am thrilled and honoured to be a brand ambassador for YAPEAL and take part in this exciting journey to a new digital financial service provider.”

Karin Mathys

“I am convinced that digital finance should be contextual and beyond offering standard finance products and services. The successful company of the future focusses on understanding their customers’ needs and is capable of addressing them with tailored customer centric processes and services. I like YAPEAL’s consistent implementation of this approach by interacting and collaborating with their community and I am happy and honoured to support the YAPEAL team in re-thinking finance and developing an innovative offering.”

Kirsten Mathiassen

“I experience Yapeal as committed and visionary experts who take care of the transformation of our everyday payment system with heart, responsibility and pragmatism. I look forward to traveling with Yapeal on the threshold of “Communication and Organization”.”

Lamara von Albertini

“The advancement of new technologies paves the way for the transformation of digital services and homogenization of access to the financial services and markets. I am happy and honored to help the YAPEAl team with legal and regulatory frameworks and make a contribution to society.”

Lea Hungerbühler

“Access to affordable financial services is key for each economy and society. By using the latest technologies efficiently, YAPEAL facilitates financial inclusion for everyone. I am happy to work with YAPEAL – together we take the opportunity of new regulatory frameworks to enable innovative payment solutions!”

Luca Schneider

“I like technology and in my job I get in touch with it every day. Since money is a central part of our economic system, it can’t be that most financial institutions are technologically lagging behind everything else. YAPEAL is an exception and a very good alternative to existing competitors. That’s the reason I want to help them that it stays that way.”

Marco Wiederkehr

“Growing up, I witnessed visionaries facilitating many areas of life through digitalisation. Now we take on payment.”

Marianne Scherer

“Finally a lean solution on the horizon.”

Michel Consiglio

“Customer-centric thinking and acting are key skills for every company in the digital change. YAPEAL goes one step further and involves the customer deeply in the development processes. He becomes the #Yapster and part of the community. This blurs the boundaries of the classic roles of customer and company – the future new status quo. I am happy to be part of the YAPEAL story.”

Moritz Altermatt

“It is time to fundamentally change the way we handle our money. Todays possibilities are limitless and offer an opportunity to manage an important part of our lives – money – in a new way. YAPEAL allows us to do exactly that and I am looking forward to this exciting change.”

Pascal Müller

“It is time to not only talk about progress, but also to take the “step away” from traditional, less customer-centric financial services to a modern, mobile offering. right here, in Switzerland!”

Patrick Franco

“Silicon Valley goes Altstetten – Here I learn from the most innovative and fastest.”

Patrick Urban

“It excites me when technologies are used to create a better future for society in the sense of being simpler, more innovative and more comfortable. In this context it’s time for payment to be redefined. YAPEAL is on that path with a disruptive approach.”

Patrick Zurfluh

“We need payments, but there is so much opportunity to reimagine it and make it more user friendly with good design, simplified processes, fair terms, and transparent communication. YAPEAL is building a new kind of services on these principles, putting the customer first. The possibilities are endless and I am excited to be part of the next revolution.”

Phillippe Winter-Fabian

“I am excited to be part of the journey with YAPEAL because we share a common mindset: Payment should be fun!”

Rafael Domeisen

“Everyone talks about customer centricity and customer experience, but most put their own interests above those of the customers. By talking to (potential) customers and identifying their needs, you create a service that is successful in the marketplace. As a YAPEAL ambassador, I help to identify these needs. Talk to us – we listen to you!”

Rafael Eric Perez Süess

“Where if not in Switzerland should the first, real digital wallet come from? Cheeky, innovative, agile, solid and good: I can easily associate myself with that! I am proud to carry the yapeale message out into the world and help to create a very cool product.”

Raoul Kriesi

“YAPEAL is the kind of financial service provider I want to see in the future and my children expect it today! Fast, simple, mobile and consistently customer-oriented! Nice, the future is soon present!”

Raphael Müller

“Digitisation offers opportunities and risks. Disruptive innovations create new opportunities. The Fintech share in the industry is still insignificant. However, in terms of agility, culture and the associated innovative strength, Fintech is already far superior to traditional institutions. The Swiss financial centre is attractive and is therefore becoming a target market even for those outside the industry. With their consistent customer centricity and customer experience, they set new standards that cannot be ignored by traditional institutions. These institutions must reposition themselves. The advisory and business model of Swiss financial institutions, which has proven itself over decades, must be questioned.”

Reto Blum

„As a choice architect and behavioral designer I am well aware how people decide. Especially when it comes to financial issues people often are paralysed and owerwhelmed. As a consequence we make poor decisions. Thanks to Behavioral Economics Insights we are capable to design people’s behavior and choices for their good. I want to make sure, that our clients can start to make better decisions to improve their financial situation and their wellbeing as a whole.“

Rishi Chattopadhyay

“In my childhood I dreamt to work for a financial institution at Paradeplatz in Zurich. A few years later, after being employed for leading financial services, of which three are based around Paradeplatz, I support building an innovative wallet and developing the FinTech world.”

Roger Loertscher

“Todays financial services are complicated, intransparent and the user experience is sometimes confusing. That‘s where YAPEAL steps in and will build up the first truly Swiss digital wallet from scratch, this with an overall user centric and simplified approach. I‘m honored to be part of this incredible journey.”

Ruedi Maeder

“Technology creates new possibilities and changes the way people live their daily lives, their work and their lives – especially their “financial life”. New ideas and models combine changing demands at different stages of life with individuality, comfort and services that make financial life wonderfully easy for people. It is exciting to be part of this development.”

Sabine Hall

“Payment should be as easy as mobile reading, orientation, communication and socialising. YAPEAL offers a state-of-the art and easy handling platform which brings a new payment-experience to everyone. I am excited to support this project on its future path!”

Sarah Martin

“Financial issues are an important part of daily life. Still, there are a lot of taboos and aversions around when it comes to handling your money. What does it mean to build a new brand that could finally change the typical image of a financial institution and turn it into a personal lifestyle product people really like to use? How can visual communication help to make that shift (faster)? I’m looking forward to get answers to these questions and I am convinced that YAPEAL has the right concept, the right spirit and the perfect team to be that brand and make that shift.”

Thomas Ogi

“When using digital services I mostly appreciate convenience and transparency. Unfortunately, my financial services today are still very traditional and convenience is very much lacking. That’s why I’m truly engaged to help build the first digital wallet in Switzerland that offers exactly what I’m looking for.”

Urs Seiler

Yeng Chow

“Good people are the foundation of every success! Knowing the Yapsters behind Yapeal got me excited from day 1. I feel honored to play my small part in this great journey.”
