the

Company

Delega is a fast-growing fintech company based in Switzerland.

Our

Story

Delega is a Cloud-based/SaaS fintech company.

Our experienced team of treasury professionals and former transaction bankers is all too familiar with signatory pain points. We recognised that a coordinated effort by corporates and banks was needed to truly address the issue and come up with an effective end process.

We’ve created a better way to do business: one that leverages digital technologies and a new solution design principle, and is supported by an entirely collaborative approach. Our solution has always kept both ‘sides of the story’ in mind – it’s what makes Delega unique in responding to the needs of all parties. 

Backed by strategic stakeholders, Delega’s founders keep on working to deliver a multi-party operating platform and workflow.

Delega is the answer to one of the major pain points for corporate treasurers, and Riccardo has asked some of the subject matter experts he has met in his career to help him solve this problem for the financial industry…once and for all!

Our

ESG Commitment

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are in our DNA.

Starting with the “E”, we’re helping protect the planet by making the corporate-to-bank interaction completely paperless. At Delega, we envisage a world where documents that can be delivered electronically are never couriered, reducing the associated travel emissions considerably. These are some of the ways we’re contributing to the goal to lower CO2 emissions by up to 55% by 2030.

Referring to the “S” of ESG, we have no offices, empowering our people instead to work from anywhere. We want the best people for the job without the boundaries of physical location. We’ve also established wellbeing policies to take care of our people. The “G” is reflected in our policies to promote equality of gender, sex and religions and our 100% focus on personalised coaching programmes for our people.
