Alior Bank, solarisBank, Raisin and Mastercard to unveil European digital bank
The new offering, which is planned to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2018, will be built on the “strengths of all partners”.
Alior Bank will deliver multicurrency accounts with international transfers and deposits.
solarisBank will add the banking infrastructure with its technological, compliance and regulatory framework.
Raisin through its network of partner banks, is adding various savings and investment possibilities to the offering.
Mastercard’s benefit optimisation programme will be used to offer additional services for the customers. The product will be available for all EU residents with a focus on the German market during the first phase of the project.
Daniel Daszkiewicz, head of fintech at Alior Bank, says: “For example, a customer in Germany, while opening an account with solarisBank, will instantaneously gain access to a multicurrency account with Alior Bank and to Raisin’s savings products.”
He adds that with Mastercard, customers will be able to buy additional value-added services.
According to solarisBank, the open API platform will use the opportunities from the EU directive PSD2 and open banking.
While they have unveiled a joint website for this development, solarisBank tells FinTech Futures the name of the bank has not been disclosed yet.
