Deposit Solutions surpasses EUR 2 Billions in savings deposits transmitted

Deposit Solutions marks record year of growth by passing two billion euros of savings through ZINSPILOT

  • Follows announcement of first billion euros transmitted in October 2016
  • Second billion euros was transmitted through B2C platform in just seven months

Hamburg, June 20, 2017 – Deposit Solutions, the Open Banking platform for deposits, has capped a record year of growth by surpassing two billion euros in savings deposits transmitted via the company’s consumer facing site, ZINSPILOT. It marks a successful step in the growth of Deposit Solutions, which now has over 100 employees and is currently embarking on a programme of further expansion beyond its existing offices in Hamburg, London and Zurich. While the first one billion euros transmitted via ZINSPILOT took 13 months to achieve, the second billion has been reached in May just seven months later. ZINSPILOT offers savers direct access to best-in-class interest rates from multiple banks from a single account. It was launched in December 2014 to a limited beta-user-group and opened to all German savers in September 2015. Since then, it has gained more than 50,000 customers, and was recently voted “Best Deposit Marketplace” at the BankingCheck Awards for the third year in succession with a customer recommendation rate of 95%. Deposit Solutions also offers the proprietary technology behind ZINSPILOT directly to banks. It allows banks seeking retail funding to list their savings offers on the platform. Other banks can then market those offers directly to their own clients. As a result, clients can access best in class savings offers through their home bank without having to open a new account at another bank. B2B partners that have already connected to the Deposit Solutions Open Banking platform include renowned financial institutions such as Deutsche Bank and FFB, the German subsidiary of Fidelity International. Dr. Tim Sievers, founder and CEO of Deposit Solutions, said: “ZINSPILOT enables savers to benefit from greater choice and better rates through a single account even if their home bank has not yet implemented our platform. We are very happy about its success because it shows the great demand for this service and proves the home banks implementing our solution to be on the right track. We believe that Open Banking will become the new industry standard for the deposit business across Europe and our platform is the infrastructure enabling and driving this change.”
