The 4 Steps to Future-Fit SME Banking
One-size-fits-no-one products traditionally offered by financial institutions do not meet the expectations of consumers and businesses seeking personalized services. Nor do they compete with the raft of new providers delivering specialist products designed to meet the needs of discrete demographics. FintechOS empowers banks, financial services and insurance companies to build and launch new products and services that are data-driven, personalized, and scalable - all in a matter of weeks.
Even though we are constantly growing and have more and more offices around the world, we are still part of the same team with the same ethos and the same duty of care to one another. We believe that our strong culture of borderless collegiality is a competitive advantage for us and we go to great lengths to nurture and preserve it. We believe that working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and thinking styles helps us become better professionals and leaders. Our values keep us grounded and ready for constant growth.
Our mission is to create the kind of customer experiences we want for ourselves. That means doing things a little bit differently. It means understanding people’s needs, challenges and dreams. By tapping into all of our unique journeys, we can deliver meaningful solutions that make a difference.
We are brave in our actions and relentless in asking questions. For us, it’s about making great experiences available to everyone. New ideas drive change, so we constantly innovate and take on new challenges - that's what makes us pioneers.
We are shaping the future of our industry by dreaming up and building game changing products. To do this, we bet on big ideas and the talented people behind them. Our approach is driven by what makes us all human, and it has built a creative environment where people and careers can thrive.
Digital transformation is at the top of the agenda for many banking, financial services and insurance companies, but these strategies are often lengthy, complex, and costly. Our tools allow institutions to start small, think big and scale fast.
In 2017, two serial entrepreneurs, Teodor Blidarus and Sergiu Negut knew they had something good on their hands - a revolutionary product with a designated market. They decided to join forces and go into start-up mode.
FintechOS was born, with a vision to empower financial services providers to become truly customer-centric. Fast-forward to today, and the founders’ dream is a reality, with over USD 100 billion under management, 350+ employees and 4 offices globally.
Co-Founder & CEO
For nearly 25 years, Teo has led the roll-out of technology for banking, financial services and insurance companies worldwide. He has grown several companies, three of which are now serving Fortune 500 customers in 30 international markets.
Sergiu has a proven track record of business growth in different roles (adviser, board member, angel investor, manager) and across different industries (healthcare, IT&C, financial services, HR, consulting).
We believe that working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and thinking styles helps us all grow into stronger professionals and better leaders.
We think it’s important to stay humble, carry ourselves with quiet confidence, and treat others the same way that we want to be treated. Simple, but powerful.
At FintechOS, we’ve taken our first steps to reduce our environmental footprint. In line with our belief in what matters to us as human beings, sustainable practices are embedded in our culture.
The segment we operate in is considered to be relatively low impact. But why not take that a step further? We strive to implement measures to further reduce that impact.
Water and electricity conservation are general practice in our offices. We use energy-efficient devices, recycle wherever we can and select suppliers based on their sustainable practices. Our policies play a role too. Staff are encouraged to power down equipment at the end of the day, enabling energy savings settings on all computers and desktops. Always ready to get involved, we look out for new ways to play our part.
FintechOS is strongly committed to improving people’s quality of life in the communities where we operate. That desire to help out has spurned our annual CSR strategy.
