Property Information

Location:

Currently the company is registered in London but it can be easily relocated and operated from any other place.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Using the existing FCA authorisation the company can easily expand and add any other permissions for regulated financial products and services.

Competition / Market:

Corporate and personal internet banking is still not developed sufficiently and this niche is available. There's some competition from conventional banks but their policies and long onboarding times make it difficult for start-ups or non-UK legal entities to open an account. Current regulations together with the conventional banking approach opened a new potential to the FinTech industry that lead to the new companies’ arrival on the market that create serious competition to conventional banks.
