Empowering a new generation of embedded finance experiences
We’ve been pioneering innovations and pushing boundaries ever since we were founded. Today we’re leading the way in making financial products and services digital and embeddable, enabling deeper and richer customer experiences with the brands people love.
Pioneering embedded finance. Powering amazing experiences.
Working in fintech since the 1990s, our founders gained valuable experience of building successful companies and identifying new opportunities. In 2016 they created Railsbank, assembled a talented team and began building our world-class platform. Together we’re committed to realising our ambition of embedding financial services for brands who want to build deeper engagement with their customers.
Railsbank is founded by Nigel Verdon and Clive Mitchell
Nigel Verdon and Clive Mitchell, serial fintech entrepreneurs who previously established Evolution and Currency Cloud, among other successful and award-winning companies. Originally founded in London, Railsbank has since expanded across Europe, SE Asia, Australia and the US.
MISSION & VISION
We use embedded finance to enable a world of richer finance experiences with the brands people love.
To enable any business or brand to rapidly prototype, launch and scale financial products that are directly embedded within their own user experience.
We will achieve this by democratising access to finance through replacing legacy industry infrastructure and being a simple to use turnkey platform.
We work with some of the world’s most adventurous brands to deliver the richest experiences for their customers.
