SweepBank is a customer-centric Smart bank.
The service is underpinned by Tuum’s core banking platform.
SweepBank is operated by the credit institution Ferratum Bank p.l.c.. Ferratum Bank, a subsidiary of Multitude, is a public limited company incorporated under Maltese law.
Ferratum Bank is part of the international fintech company Multitude (formerly Ferratum Group) and is a public limited company registered in Malta and licensed by the Malta Financial Services Authority. The bank primarily offers loans in Germany.
The bank will, for example, give tips on how to handle money properly – and evaluate spending and saving habits for this purpose.
Their service allows users to set up savings accounts and make payments around the world online or at checkout using the ready-to-use Mastercard virtual debit card or a biodegradable physical card via a smartphone with Apple Pay or NFC technology for Android.
SweepBank’s credit card, a Mastercard, enables financing of smaller, unplanned purchases, such as online shopping and physical stores. Integrations with Apple Pay and NFC payments allow for easy use online and in physical retail locations.
Interest on balances and discounts and bonus points that beckon in the offers section round out the offerings.
