About Banking Circle

Banking Circle is a next-generation provider of mission-critical financial services infrastructure leading the rise of a super-correspondent banking network. Banking Circle is a fully licensed bank able to deliver financial infrastructure at low cost, compliantly and securely. Banks and Payments businesses can now access real-time payments allowing them to seize market opportunities without having to commit to significant investment in their own internal infrastructure. We believe in financial inclusivity. From international payments to settlement accounts, FX to compliance. Through Banking Circle, financial institutions can offer their customers banking services to help them trade domestically and globally, efficiently and at low cost. Banking Circle is empowering financial institutions to support their customers’ international trading ambitions, without the need for multiple banking relationships, whilst reducing risk and the operational cost of transactions. Businesses that were previously financially excluded are now able to participate in the digital economy in a way which was not previously possible. In September 2018, Banking Circle was acquired by EQT VIII and EQT Ventures, in partnership with Banking Circle’s founders. The acquisition has allowed Banking Circle to accelerate its growth in current and new geographies, with access to both operational and financial resources to drive innovation and investments in technology development and talent acquisition. In February 2020 Banking Circle announced that it had secured its Banking Licence, significantly elevating the business in the digital financial economy. Banking Circle’s proprietary technology enables Payments businesses and Banks of any scale to seize opportunities, compete and grow. From multi-currency accounts to fast access to international payments and local clearing to real-time FX, we’re quick, low-cost, and secure.
