TransferWise has announced a partnership with Berlin-based cloud banking platform Mambu. Customers of Mambu, challenger and traditional banks alike, can now seamlessly access TransferWise’s technology infrastructure directly through the Mambu platform to offer cheap, fast and transparent international money transfers at the real exchange-rate.
Mambu enables financial institutions to build new banking and lending experiences with their cloud banking platform. Customers already include ABN AMRO’s New10, Santander’s Asto, and major fintechs like N26 and OakNorth. The cloud banking platform offers many banking capabilities including current accounts, loans, deposits, mortgages and other financial products with a wide range of third-party services easily integrated into the platform.
TransferWise for Banks is applicable for any company looking to provide its clients and customers with a cheaper, more convenient way to send money internationally. Mambu simply plugs into TransferWise’s free and fast API, available to any financial institution eager to offer their customers hassle-free international money transfers.
As a result of this integration, Mambu’s clients are able to use an out-of-the-box integration without spending effort on implementing it, so it can focus efforts on building a convenient user experience for customers to send money abroad, knowing exactly how much they are paying without any hidden fees.
Kristo Käärmann, CEO & co-founder of TransferWise said, “Integrating TransferWise for Banks with Mambu is another major step towards our vision of establishing a new global payments infrastructure for banks around the world, and bringing our low cost, transparent service to anyone who needs it. Mambu is a game changer in a market that seeks modern solutions to the problems faced by traditional banks. By plugging into our API, Mambu just became the world’s number one cloud banking provider to use for international payments. From their first day in business, banks gain significant advantages over their competitors, benefiting from the speed and convenience of TransferWise’s services.”
Ben Goldin, CTO/CPO of Mambu, “TransferWise has revolutionised how money is moved across borders. We were impressed how TransferWise has established itself around the globe spanning infrastructure platform in a highly complex regulatory environment which aligns with our aims. We aim to offer best-in-class banking services through our cloud platform and are pleased that international banking is no longer of any concern for our customers.”
