Our B2C Channels

We have transmitted more than EUR 9 billion in deposits through our B2C channels ZINSPILOT and Savedo alone. Over 155,000 savers have already opened accounts with the awards-winning portals. We mainly focus on banks based in countries that are rated ‘investment grade’ by leading rating agencies. 


Deposit Solutions operates the B2C channel ZINSPILOT in Germany. Based on the fiduciary account model, ZINSPILOT allows depositors to access attractive third-party deposit products without having to open new accounts. Since its launch in October 2015, ZINSPILOT has built numerous successful partnerships and was named “Best Deposit Marketplace” by BankingCheck over four consecutive years. ZINSPILOT follows a clearly defined listing codex: only banks from countries that are rated ‘investment grade’ by at least two of the three major rating agencies (Fitch, Moody’s, S&P) can actively market deposit products through ZINSPILOT in the German market.

Deposit Solutions operates Savedo as its international B2C channel. Today, the platform is already active in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. Since 2014, Savedo built partnerships with over 15 banks and won the award “Best Deposit Marketplace” by BankingCheck.
