||Founded in 2011, Deposit Solutions employs a team of more than 110 highly qualified and motivated staff based in Hamburg, London and Zurich. It has received more than EUR 25 million in venture funding from renowned European and US investors such as e.ventures, FinLab, Greycroft Partners, Peter Thiel and Valar Ventures. During its last investment round in July 2016, it was valued at EUR 110 million.
Its Open Banking platform allows banks to offer attractive third party deposit products to their own customers through their existing accounts. As a result, banks looking for funding can gather deposits from new markets and client groups without having to set up and operate their own retail infrastructure, and depositors can access best-in-class deposit offers without having to open a new account at another bank. In this way, the platform supports a healthier banking system throughout Europe by providing an open market for deposit products, more effectively allocating resources and increasing customer benefits.
Deposit Solutions also operates its own retail channel ZINSPILOT in Germany. This offering allows savers whose banks have not yet integrated its Open Banking platform to access third party deposit products, starting with a deposit amount of just EUR 1. With ZINSPILOT, Deposit Solutions is proud to offer an exceptional customer journey and customer service, as demonstrated by being named â€œBest Deposit Marketplaceâ€ by Bankingcheck.de in 2015, 2016 and 2017 â€“ three years in a row. Since beginning operations in September 2015, ZINSPILOT has generated more than 50,000 customer accounts and mediated more than EUR 2 billion in deposits.
Through its open banking platform and own retail channel, Deposit Solutions is transforming the retail and corporate deposit market in Europe worth more than EUR 10 trillion, connecting banks from more than 10 European countries and reaching 20 million savers with a deposit base of more than EUR 1 trillion
