Our Market

Product Banks

Product Banks need access to cost-efficient funding and to diversify their funding channels.

Client Banks

Client Banks need to become more agile, offer their clients an attractive product selection and manage their liquidity in a flexible way.


Savers today expect transparency, security and best-in-class offers. They deserve a choice.

European savers are losing billions of euros every year as their deposit interest rates have often dropped below inflation. Many European banks could benefit from cross-border retail funding, but lack the scale or resources to operate their own retail deposit infrastructure. Other European banks hold an excess of retail deposits on their balance sheet, which they currently need to park with the ECB at negative rates.

Our Innovation

Since 2011, we have developed a proprietary technology revolutionizing the value chain for savers and banks.

Deposit Solutions allows European banks to gather retail deposits from across Europe onto their home balance sheet without requiring their own retail infrastructure. Banks can offer their products on our platform, other banks can then market those offers directly to their own clients, who can access them without having to open a new account at another bank. This enables savers to choose multiple products from several banks using one bank account.

Our solution …

For Client Banks, Deposit Solutions offers an
efficient way to steer excess liquidity off your balance sheet, while deepening your client relationship.
