Driving insightful analysis for the financial services sector

Our Story

NETZ is a high-tech client intelligence and lead generation company based in London. NETZ was founded in 2014 by ex-banker, Frank Bertele. During his career, Frank worked with clients in Europe, the United States and Africa. Frank spent hours researching clients in order to better understand them, create an empathic and personalised business approach, and ultimately build strong and trusting relationships. Having won a multi-billion dollar deal because of a great relationship with a client, despite having a more expensive offering than competitors he realised how powerful deep and meaningful relationships can be. He resigned from his job and founded NETZ which since then developed into a full-service client intelligence and lead generation platform.

Our mission is to empower modern financial services institutions with new technology, new intelligence and new techniques to better identify and connect with clients. Our customers put a bespoke and personalised customer experience at the heart of a client relationship.

Our platform uses natural language processing (NLP), data science and machine learning to deliver the most sophisticated platform available and most accurate overview of your clients and leads.

In 2015 we were selected as a Finalist at the UBS Future of Finance Challenge, having successfully completed one of the UK’s leading growth programmes, the Accelerator Academy.
