London, 20th January 2020 – Starting 2020 in the same vein as 2019 finished, Banking Circle continues to achieve success in industry awards. It has been announced as a finalist in the British Bank Awards, from Smart Money People. Nominated and voted for by customers, the British Bank Awards aim to find the best products, hottest innovation and most trusted financial brands and partners in the industry.
In the first 12 weeks of voting more than 21,000 customers voted on more than 180 banking and financial services firms. Voting on the shortlist remains open until 9th February and winners will be announced at a black-tie event at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London on 12th March 2020.
Anders la Cour, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Banking Circle commented: “Kicking off 2020 with a customer-voted award shortlisting is a terrific honour and testament to the hard work of the entire team. We worked tirelessly throughout 2019 to evolve our existing solutions to help banks and FinTechs around the world provide their customers with more affordable and accessible payments and banking. Increasing SME financial inclusion is at the heart of everything we do, and this shortlisting confirms we are making a difference.”
Banking Circle is a global-scale financial utility that gives banks and financial tech businesses the ability to enhance their customer proposition. Leading the rise of a super-correspondent banking network, Banking Circle is increasing international financial inclusion by helping financial institutions provide their customers and previously excluded businesses with faster, cheaper banking solutions. These solutions include banking accounts, local and cross border payments, multi-currency IBAN accounts and flexible lending solutions, and negate the need for financial institutions to build their own infrastructure and correspondent banking partner network.
The British Banking Awards are entirely decided by customers, not industry experts. Customers can vote at www.britishbankawards.co.uk. It takes less than two minutes and voters will be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000.
