The bank you can build on

Banking as a Service platform that makes it simple, quick, and cost-effective to develop and launch financial products.

Banking as a Service (BaaS) infrastructure has fueled the continued rise of innovative fintech in recent years. Subsequently regulatory scrutiny has put an increased emphasis on robust technology, responsible business practices and being able to offer services under a full banking license.

Griffin is a full-stack BaaS provider with a developer focused approach, making it possible for companies to bring new financial products to market quickly and at scale. They offer interest-bearing bank accounts, access to payment rails, integrated ledger and automated KYC solution among others. The company was founded by Silicon Valley engineers David Jarvis and Allen Rohner who are joined by an experienced team from the banking and fintech industry.

With an authorised UK banking license Griffin is now ready to accelerate its growth and partner with technology-driven firms looking to offer banking, payments, and wealth solutions to their customers.
