Time to fully recognise the potential of digital start-ups
Abstract: In Germany, the number of successful technology start-ups with a novel product is lagging behind in an international context. Considering the key role of start-ups in innovative entrepreneurship and their contribution to the real economy, reasons and key points of action to increase start-up activity should be identified. Excessive red-tape is a major hindrance and mainstream political parties are aiming to reduce excessive bureaucracy in start-up creation. Improved access to bank lending and venture capital investments are necessary to broaden post-launch funding alternatives. Brexit could be boon especially for the start-up scene in Berlin if relocation formalities are lowered. Enhancing a “can-do” culture and taking entrepreneurship among immigrants into account in policymaking have paramount importance, too. The Nordic start-up ecosystem provides important takeaways to boost start-up creation.

Robo-advice - a true innovation in asset management
Abstract: Robo-advisors are online investment platforms that use computer algorithms to manage client portfolios and are thus part of the FinTech universe. With their user-friendly, automated and low-cost services, robo-advisors pose a challenge to traditional financial advisory services and are growing fast. Online client onboarding is the most crucial step in this process, relying on questionnaires to figure out clients' preferences. Following a conservative approach in their asset selection, robo-advisors mainly invest in ETFs. Portfolio allocation is done via mean-variance optimisation and threshold-based rebalancing is utilised to maintain targeted asset weights. Wealthier and more educated clients are joining millennials as robo-advisory clients. Fees are considerably higher in the EU than in the US where robo-advisors’ AuM are much larger. Robo-advisors can contribute to financial inclusion, while their long-term success relies on a high degree of accuracy and suitability for clients.

The digital car: More revenue, more competition, more cooperation
Abstract: The traditional automobile industry and companies that, in the past, had no involvement in the sector, are working hard to create software solutions, driver assistance systems and other technologies that will make networked, autonomous, traffic jam and accident-free driving possible. That means the “digital car” in its ideal form is no longer a utopian vision for the future, but is instead gradually taking shape. However, the path to the digital car will be more of an evolution than a revolution. That is the result of factors on both the supply and demand side. They include the considerable development times in the industry and the longevity of its products, cars. Consumer preferences, which have been shaped over decades, are also unlikely to change over night. It will take several decades for digital cars to make up a significant proportion of cars on the road – that is unlikely to happen before 2040.

Digitalisierung stärkt Gesundheitsversorgung: Vielfältiger Fortschritt zeichnet sich ab
Abstract: Deutschland entwickelt sich zum internationalen Vorreiter der Digitalisierung der Gesundheitswirtschaft. Wichtiger Wegbereiter ist eine 2015 gestartete und vom Bundesgesundheitsministerium verantwortete Digitalisierungsoffensive, die im internationalen Vergleich außergewöhnlich umfassend und damit auch besonders ehrgeizig ist. Immerhin werden mittels der digitalen Gesundheitskarte und dem bis dato einzigartigen E-Health-Gesetz (EHG) zeitgleich alle drei Zukunftsfelder der Digitalisierung – eHealth, mHealth und Telemedizin – systematisch erschlossen und entwickelt.

Das "digitale Auto": Mehr Umsatz, mehr Konkurrenz, mehr Kooperation
Abstract: Die traditionelle Automobilindustrie sowie bislang branchenfremde Unternehmen arbeiten mit Hochdruck an Software-Lösungen, Fahrassistenzsystemen und anderen Technologien, die ein vernetztes, autonomes, stau- und unfallfreies Fahren ermöglichen sollen. Das „digitale Auto“ in seiner Idealform ist somit keine utopische Zukunftsvision mehr, sondern nimmt allmählich Gestalt an. Der Weg zum „digitalen Auto“ wird allerdings eher einer Evolution statt einer Revolution gleichen. Dafür sprechen Faktoren auf der Angebots- und der Nachfrageseite. Zu nennen sind die langen Entwicklungszeiten in der Branche sowie die Langlebigkeit des Produkts Auto. Ferner dürften sich die seit Jahrzehnten gewachsenen Konsumpräferenzen nur langsam ändern. Es werden noch mehrere Jahrzehnte vergehen, bis das „digitale Auto“ den Pkw-Bestand weitgehend durchdrungen hat; vor 2040 wird dies wohl nicht der Fall sein.

Uncertainty is slowing capital expenditure
Abstract: In view of the pronounced economic and (geo)political uncertainties and the weak starting level, (private-sector) equipment investment in Germany is likely to decrease in 2017 despite a respectable level of capacity utilisation. The interplay of multiple factors is currently causing a high level of uncertainty: the potentially serious impact on Germany in the event of the uncertainties materialising, the continued high number of simultaneous uncertainties, the complexity of many capital expenditure decisions and the lack of confidence in politicians (and/or their ability to come up with solutions). We will present several uncertainty indicators based on news, surveys and financial markets data that provide a way of quantifying the uncertainty.

Unsicherheit bremst Investitionen aus
Abstract: Aufgrund der ausgeprägten wirtschaftlichen und (geo-)politischen Unsicherheit und des schwachen Startniveaus dürften die (privaten) Ausrüstungsinvestitionen in Deutschland 2017 sinken trotz insgesamt ordentlich ausgelasteter Kapazitäten der Unternehmen. Ein Zusammenspiel mehrerer Aspekte sorgt derzeit für das hohe Unsicherheitsniveau: die potenziell gravierenden Auswirkungen auf Deutschland bei Eintritt der Unsicherheiten, die anhaltend hohe Zahl gleichzeitiger Unsicherheiten, die Komplexität vieler Investitionsentscheidungen sowie der Mangel an Vertrauen in die (Lösungskompetenz der) Politik. Wir stellen eine Reihe von nachrichten-, umfrage- und finanzmarktbasierten Unsicherheitsindikatoren vor, die eine ansatzweise Quantifizierung der Unsicherheit erlauben, und geben einen Ausblick auf die unseres Erachtens wichtigsten Unsicherheiten.

Bargeld, Freiheit und Verbrechen: Bargeld in der digitalen Welt
Abstract: Obwohl der Zahlungsverkehr zunehmend digital wird, wächst in Europa die Nachfrage nach Bargeld. Der Euro-Bargeldumlauf ist mittlerweile auf 1,1 Billionen Euro gestiegen – eine Verdreifachung im Vergleich zu 2003. Bargeld setzt der Macht der Zentralbanken Grenzen, es gewährleistet Datenschutz und kann somit dazu beitragen, Bürgerrechte zu sichern. Andererseits geht eine intensive Nutzung von Bargeld häufig mit einer stärkeren Schattenwirtschaft einher. Der Wechsel zu bargeldlosen Zahlungen scheint dagegen zu einem Anstieg des Kartenbetrugs zu führen.

Cash, freedom and crime: Use and impact of cash in a world going digital
Abstract: Despite a growing role of electronic payments, demand for cash is on the rise in Europe. Euro cash in circulation has increased to EUR 1.1 trillion, three times as much as in 2003. Cash limits the power of monetary authorities, provides data protection and can therefore act as a guarantor of civil liberties. On the other hand, it is often associated with a stronger shadow economy, even though the shift towards a cashless society seems to trigger higher levels of card fraud.

Augmented reality: Specialised applications are the key to this fast-growing market for Germany
Abstract: Augmented reality is far more than the much-discussed smartglasses that are equated with horrific dystopian scenarios in which everyone is under surveillance. The fact is that augmented reality supports people in their day-to-day activities, extends their perception and facilitates communication. That is why it is important not to write off the technology in its entirety, simply because of one individual application, but instead to seize the highly attractive opportunities presented by this fast-growing market. German companies, however, would probably do well to offer customised services for commercial applications in niche markets where the tech giants have not become established.
