Set up over a decade ago to break down inherent barriers in banking, Cashplus provides simple, secure, straightforward and efficient services to customers who continue to be overlooked by the high street banks- Cashplus has now attracted over 1.6 million UK customers to its accounts.
The company continues to see a huge demand for its services with a 93% year-on-year growth in demand for capital from SME businesses alone since October 2015 .
With London regarded as a world-renowned fintech hub, CEO Rich Wagner continues to leverage his position as Chairman of the Emerging Payments Association to support government promises to make the banking sector more competitive. This includes lobbying for non-banks to gain access to traditional payments infrastructure including the Faster Payments Scheme.
Says Rich, "We pride ourselves on leading the field in fintech capabilities, and as a pathfinder in the sector, the Cashplus proposition remains simple: 'speed and ease of use for customers'. We anticipate that Cashplus, particularly in the SME space, with our customer-centric approach will see further growth in the coming 12 months."
