The Everly Summary (weekly TOP5 news)

Welcome to Everly.eu’s weekly summary. Let’s see the most important news we have covered during the last week in a TOP 5 list!

Kevin Albrecht, CEO, and co-founder at Swedish Fintech P.F.C. provided Everly.eu with an exclusive interview in which he addresses how he sees the future of his company and his insights on the current state of the Fintech environment.

Dutch digital bank bunq is the first challenger to be included in the banking guide on honestegeldwijzer.nl (EGW). The EGW was founded in 2009 and serves as a quality mark that enables consumers to consciously choose a sustainable bank.

The cross-border payments unicorn TransferWise announced a partnership with charities and organisations who are seeking to find and distribute, a vaccine for COVID-19. Starling Bank integrated online accounting software PayStream for its business customers and Thomas Dodson joins N26 as Head of Engineering in the US.

1st place: Kevin Albrecht, CEO, and co-founder at Swedish Fintech P.F.C. interviewed by Everly.eu

“Our approach is a bit different from some other neobanks. We don‘t want to expand just for the sake of expanding. We want to get deeper into our markets and help our customers with their daily financial use cases.”

2nd place: Bunq has been added to the Dutch Fair Finance Guide

Ali Niknam, CEO and founder of bunq, says: “I’m incredibly proud that we’re the highest new entry to be included! And thanks to many new ideas and insights provided by the Dutch Fair Finance Guide, I’m sure we’ll do even better next year!”

3rd place: TranferWise is waiving fees on $20,000,000 in donations to COVID-19 research

The company pointed out that most banks and payment providers don’t exchange your money using the mid-market rate and that they alter the rate in a way that is favorable to them, and pocket the extra money.

4th place: Starling Bank integrated PayStream for business customers

The PayStream service connects Starling’s business customers with experts on IR35, the tax legislation that helps determine if a limited company contractor is an independent business or if they’re essentially an employee working for a client without being on the payroll.

5th place: Thomas Dodson joins N26 as Head of Engineering in the US

Dodson joins N26 with many years of experience as a technologist, both as an engineer and as a leader of software teams.
