#93 - Tiphaine Saltini (Neuroprofiler) - Assessing her appetite for sustainable investments by playing
Description of the episode
A real pleasure for me to talk again about cognitive biases with Tiphaine who had already come to talk to us about it within the framework of MIFID. This time we discuss how we as investors are influenced by our biases when it comes to sustainable investing. Capturing the customer's appetite for sustainable finance through our behavior is the new challenge that this start-up is launching. Tiphaine shares with us the results of a study that was carried out by Neuroprofiler to probe the knowledge and appetite of private investors on the subject of sustainability and the themes of the European taxonomy of application for a few months now. This growing interest - especially among young people - especially around climate change bodes well for our planet. However, you will understand that there is a gap between the needs identified for these customers and the products currently available from financial institutions. We are also reviewing with Tiphaine how the health crisis was experienced by this start-up and the obvious changes in use of its institutional clients. Gamification makes it possible to minimize a certain number of biases and therefore to render a more faithful image of the real appetite and reveal more of the needs and desires of customers in terms of ESG. Guest recommendations: Noise by Daniel Kahneman and Olivier Sibony System 1, system 2: The two speeds of thought by Daniel Kahneman (read and reread: a must)

Description of the episode
After having already brilliantly succeeded in creating a start-up, developing it and selling it to a group, this passionate entrepreneur thought long and hard before embarking on a new adventure. The trigger for Arbia was the yellow vest crisis in 2019. She decided that we had to aim big for a large part of the population. She therefore decided to launch: Rosaly, a socially responsible FinTech that helps companies improve the financial well-being of their employees by streamlining access to wages and providing advice and budget education using an application. The down payment is the first step in this fabulous project that is Rosaly. You will see that Arbia's ambitions are very high with the aim of helping as many people as possible to no longer live in financial precariousness. The innovative approach of this FinTech is that of the fluidity of payroll management. Arbia goes into the details and you will see how much administrative and financial burden it is for companies to administer on a daily basis. Making payroll more flexible is a way to retain employees and give them an additional level of comfort in managing their finances. We go through the different stages of the start-up: the inventory of the market, evangelization, the search for the first customers, the construction of the solution and the financial structuring and the business model.
