Longevity and DeepTech in Switzerland: What’s Next? While this is only the second dedicated set of Deep Knowledge Group Longevity Events in Switzerland, it will not be the last. The Group has been prioritizing Switzerland as one of the most prospective hubs for its Longevity and DeepTech activities, especially at the intersections of precision medicine, investment, financial industry, InvestTech, and Policy for many years now.
The Group decided in 2019 to headquarter its Swiss-based financial arm, Deep Knowledge Ventures Swiss, in Geneva to leverage the region’s unique financial industry strengths and reputation. Deep Knowledge Ventures Swiss is devoted to the development of structured financial products and derivatives in Switzerland. It is also responsible for conducting various financial and investment activities in the DeepTech industries.
Meanwhile, the Group also decided to launch its dedicated Longevity Biomarkers company, Quant Biomarkers, in Basel, Switzerland (with branches in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Ukraine) under the directorship of Wyen Board Member Dr. Sanja Baumann-Tomovska (a Basel-based precision medicine professional with 10+ years experience as a department head at Roche, Novartis & Abbott Life Sciences).
Quant Biomarkers company is a data-driven financial and biotechnology company, specializing in quantitative assessment of human biomarkers; development of biomarker panels and biological age metrics; their application for investment de-risking, insurance, and hedging objectives; development of structured financial products; and analytics linked to human biomarkers and biological age. The main goal of the company is to introduce biomarkers-driven longevity risks mitigation for a broad group of financial and healthcare-related entities.
One of the primary goals of the company for 2022-2023 is to introduce biomarkers-driven Longevity risk mitigation for a broad group of healthcare-related entities, and the development of a specialized platform to aggregate, integrate, and synthesize the expertise, products, and services of other leading biomarker companies and R&D centers into one unified platform using cutting edge next-generation AI, deep learning and reinforcement learning technologies.
These developments will further fuel the parallel development of data-driven InvestTech solutions for due diligence, novel financial products for the next generation of InsurTech (healthcare insurance focused on tangible Practical Human Longevity), and the most sophisticated and validated market-ready technologies for Precision Medicine and Longevity clinics.
Deep Knowledge Ventures Swiss and Quant Biomarkers will also lead the development of the Longevity International Association and Swiss Longevity Valley as major non-profit forums for sustainable development of Longevity and Aging Research to identify ways of raising the profile of the sector in Europe and to incentivize major stakeholders: business, science, governments, clinical centers, insurers, and banking institutions.
