Maravon is a FinTech and consulting company that incubates and develops solutions for big financial markets that are yet under- or even totally unbanked. Our goal is to make a contribution to a healthy progress of world financial markets.

Maravon Trading Platforms
Emerging markets are not only regionally defined markets. For us, the term 'emerging markets' means trading in new asset classes. And we are working on technology solutions that develop these markets, ensuring they do 'emerge'. Jörg Hörster

Maravon Markets

Through our subsidiaries we deploy and will operate digital markets that turn illiquid assets into tradable securities.

More and more market participants are looking for exposure to emerging, still illiquid asset classes to gain higher returns. Maravon's subsidiaries develop selected “emerging markets“ through consortia formation and trading platform developing projects, sponsored by natural key “liquidity owners“.

Our first subsidiary is TrustBills GmbH. TrustBills will become a trading platform for trade receivables. Suppliers sell receivables from their customers in a 'true sale' by starting an automated bidding contest among institutional investors. Suppliers obtain an advanced payment, higher than any factoring company may offer, while eliminating credit risk and contracting their balance sheets at the same time. Suppliers, who will use TrustBills, face better total capital ratios and better credit risk scores immediately. Investors enjoy attractive investment opportunities with comparatively very high yields at the short end.

Careers

Are we a match?

We are a highly motivated team with diverse skills and domains of expertise. We thrive on cultivating an environment that leverages each other's unique capabilities to the fullest.

Office Hamburg

Hamburg is one of the most entrepreneurial cities in Germany, especially as far as the technology industry is concerned. Maravon's Hamburg office is located at the Hamburg Fish Market, not far away from the offices of Google, XING, Yelp, Burda Media and Axel Springer. Logistically, with its ideal flight connections, Hamburg is also our hub to the financial districts in London.

Hamburg offers the best in what has been widely recognized as the ideal lifestyle - the immediate proximity to great food, eclectic shopping, and great live music is rivaled only by the incredible natural beauty of the Alster inland water. The summer months are well-served by near-by islands and beaches of both, the North Sea, and the Baltic Sea. They are only a short 45-60 minute drive away.


Job opportunities

Currently none.

You will be expected to deliver the best, but you will also be working with and learning from the best. We have a flat personnel structure and a highly rewarding work environment: we know how to work hard and enjoy life, both inside and outside the office.
