About us

Our vision is to create a world where financial services seamlessly sync with life

We bring banking into new contexts

By leveraging the power of technology, we remove the barriers for businesses that want to offer their own financial solutions. Our Banking-as-a-Service platform was built from scratch to enable financial services to move into new contexts that were unimaginable before. Launching a banking product has never been easier.

Your licensed partner

As a tech company with a full German banking license, we are optimally positioned to handle the regulatory and technological complexities of banking. That is why innovators ranging from startups to leading multinationals have put their trust in us.

Our vision

We believe that in this decade, financial services will be baked seamlessly into everyday life – so accessible and easy, we sometimes forget they’re there. When financial services can be offered by anyone, a world of possibilities opens up for everyone.
