About

We make banking simple

We put entrepreneurs first and use technology to make their banking experience as seamless as possible. We provide sophisticated banking services usually reserved for the 1% (such as trade finance) with a user experience as simple as consumer banking. What’s more, we provide everything in one place.

We champion the underbanked, the people who are not served by the financial system. We’re here to give them access to finance, to improve their financial well-being.

“Financial democratisation is not some far-fetched, wild economic theory. Through digital transformation, we are taking the necessary steps to address inefficiencies, and realise a financially inclusive future for all.”
