Description

A case study on The Currency Cloud and Fidor Bank

Matthias Kroener FIDOR BANK AG CEO Our vision is to be the European leader for online and mobile “community Banking”. We believe in banking with friends, and that banking need not be boring. We build trust with a transparent, open, fair dialogue in our community, as well as on Social Media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and XING. We are very proud that many have labeled us, ‘The most innovative bank in the world” We are based in Munich, but do not have branches like other banks – we are a 100% online bank. Why would we have branches? Everything we allow you to do online – managing virtual currencies, checking rates, using social connectivity – you cannot do in a normal branch. Branches are only open during certain hours; you can engage with Fidor Bank at any time. They believe in transparency and using technology to innovate and to pass on the value of innovation to their customers Users of Fidor Bank actively interact within the community and receive rewards for their interaction. For example, Fidor Bank is the first bank in the world where users and their social interactions shape the interest rate they receive on their currency account, the FidorPay Account. The rule is simple: The more Facebook “Likes”, the lower the interest rate. Active participants within the community can also earn real cash bonuses, for example for asking and answering “Money-Questions”, and sharing “saving Tips”, and rating Financial Advisors. They are being rewarded for helping others in the community with their financial needs by saving money every day. We offer a range of financial products including a real-time, easy to use and low cost ePayment system, FidorSave, that provides high interest rates with day-to-day money and fixed deposits and FidorCredit, providing low cost borrowing against your life insurance and much more in the near future. The technical backbone of our service is that FidorPay Account, an eWallet that does not just aggregate accounts, but on a single page, allows users to see all their account holdings from savings and investments through a precious metals and even virtual currencies. MC124 Fidor Bank was the first bank in the world to have a multi-currency banking-regulated eWallet that allows Fidor Bank clients to buy currency, make payments and view balances in GBP, USD, CHF, NOK TRY, PLN, AUD, and NZD. This facility was made possible by integrating The Currency Cloud’s capabilities into our systems through their TCC Connect. The Currency Cloud’s API enabled us to rapidly expand our business to include foreign exchange, payments and transfers without having to invest in costly infrastructure. Linking into TCC Connect was a quick and simple process that helped us to improve our services to our customers. The trouble free implementation shows how good The Currency Cloud’s API is; much easier then connecting to bank APIs that are based on the cumbersome FIX protocol. The Currency Cloud gave us something no transitional bank could; a sharing of a vision to reform banking services for the better. They believe in transparency and using technology to innovate and to pass on the value of innovation to their customers. By connecting to a variety of exchange rate providers and payments networks they ensure that our users are always receiving the best and lowest cost conversion and payment service possible, a service that would have been a significant capital expenditure had we tried to build ourselves. The Currency Cloud are enablers. We are glad to be working with them. WHAT THE CURRENCY CLOUD DOES FOR FIDOR BANK: °° We facilitate their multi-currency e wallet their users can easily make payments in transfers to and view balances in a variety of currencies. °° We provide fair and transparent exchange rates we don’t hide our fees. Our real time connectivity to a multitude of rate sources helps to ensure our exchange rates are timely and low cost. °° We provide the support they deserve we ensure high availability of our service response quickly to any issues and deliver value added enhancement and features as we move along our product development roadmap. The Currency Cloud Ltd is authorized by the Financial Conduct Authority, under the Payment Services Regulations 2009 for the provision of payment services. (Registration No. 531019)
