Railsbank, a leading UK-based open-banking and regtech platform, announces that LHV Bank, an Estonian full-service bank, has joined its partner network.
The partnership centres around LHV Bank’s UK branch which was opened in London earlier this year to service fintechs and financial intermediaries. LHV, with its strong focus on technology, helps extend the reach of the Railsbank platform and complements Railsbank’s existing Partner Bank network, allowing Railsbank to serve a wider range of businesses. Furthermore, the Railsbank Compliance Firewall will support LHV’s Risk and Compliance teams, allowing them to proactively manage customers using LHV through Railsbank.
Brad van Leeuwen, Head of Partnerships at Railsbank, said: “We are proud to be one of the first customers of their new UK branch. Our partnership with LHV and The Railsbank Compliance firewall will help LHV serve more customers and manage risk in a scalable way.”
Andres Kitter, Head of LHV UK Branch, added: “We are thrilled by the potential of this new partnership which we believe will be greatly beneficial to both parties. One of our key principles at LHV is that in the new era of open banking a close co-operation between service providers is of paramount importance. Working with Railsbank we can clearly see how customers of each service can directly benefit from this symbiotic relationship, especially in areas like compliance and technological innovation that continue to command the spotlight in the banking sector.
Nigel Verdon, CEO of Railsbank said: “It is great to welcome LHV Bank on board to our platform. It was especially pleasing to see them open a London branch earlier this year, demonstrating their commitment to growth via innovative banking services. We look forward to a long working relationship with them.”
