finleap, a Berlin, Germany-based fintech company builder, has launched its new business unit called finleap connect.
The fintech platforms finreach solutions and infinitec solutions will become part of this business unit.
Furthermore, the existing finleap team will proceed with its work as finleap assets and finleap build.
The finleap connect brand will unite finleap’s expertise and products as well as talent from its international markets team, the fintech platforms finreach solutions and infinitec solutions, as well as the banking service provider figo.
It will maximize the potential of the finleap ecosystem by offering a full range of leading fintech solutions and research & development (R&D) to financial institutions across Europe. The company will enable its clients to integrate services seamlessly. A wide spectrum of solutions will be offered, from stand-alone micro products to all-in-one solutions. Moreover, there will be Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) products and services available, such as “RegShield”, “Switchkit”, “Open Banking APIs” and “SME Banking”.
As a BaFin-regulated company, finleap connect will collaborate with other regulated infrastructure platforms in the finleap ecosystem: solarisBank, the technology platform with a banking license; ELEMENT, a fully digital property and casualty insurer; and Elinvar, a digital platform for asset and wealth managers.
This cooperation will enable it to offer end-to-end financial solutions and single financial products, such as accounts, loans, insurance and wealth management as a service. Later this year, finleap connect will also extend the existing API offering by an API marketplace to provide open financial services.
The teams will be managed by experienced technology leaders: Taner Akcok (CPTO), Empre Impraimoglu (GM Micro Product) and Ramy Kamel (GM White-Label).
The new setup will become effective on September 1, 2019.
Founded in 2014 by IONIQ Group and Ramin Niroumand, CEO, finleap is a ecosystem offering fintech SaaS solutions to various enterprises and builds stand-alone fintech companies.
Based in Berlin with offices in Milan, Madrid and Paris, it has already developed 16 ventures with its infrastructure and added others by acquisition to its ecosystem.
