Information on Fiinu

Fiinu Holdings, founded in 2017, is a technology platform and provider of consumer banking products.

Fiinu comprises two innovative businesses: Fiinu 2 (to be renamed Fiinu Bank Ltd), which holds the Banking Licence and will offer the group's flagship product, the Plugin Overdraft(R), and Fiinu Ltd, a provider of financial technology and alternative data solutions.

Fiinu's Plugin Overdraft(R) is an unbundled overdraft solution, whereby Fiinu can provide its customers with an overdraft facility without them having to switch their current account with their present bank, giving customers access to affordable credit. Importantly, an overdraft does not negatively impact a consumer's credit score and helps avoid expensive "payday lenders", giving consumers the opportunity to build their credit rating.

Fiinu Ltd is the group's technology arm which will manage and develop the group's platform utilising data insights and analytics.
