The bank and payments platform for fintechs

Financial technology firms and SMEs use Griffin's banking platform to open and manage operational and client money bank accounts. Griffin provides a complete set of building blocks to support a wide range of business models, including e-commerce, lending, digital current accounts, travel, and much more.

Integrate quickly

Getting a banking partner used to be a massive investment, often taking 6 months to go live. With Griffin, you can start integrating with our sandbox environment on day one. While we're required to do a bit of KYC on your business, we aim to get you live within one week of starting the process.

Customize

Griffin is API-first, enabling you to choose how to deliver the right experience for your product. You can customize onboarding, manage payments, issue cards, and get integrated financial reporting. We're here to help you bring your vision to life.

24/7 Support

We know how important it is that you be able to reach us if things go wrong. Our expertly trained support staff are available at all hours of the day to respond to questions and help resolve issues.

Compliance

If you’re running a financial services business that needs to hold client funds or touch the flow of money, the compliance issues are considerable. Card network rules, e-money or payments regulations, AML/CTF and tax reporting all add up. Griffin makes these burdens easier by shifting most of the onerous work to us, allowing you to stay focused on your business and to spend less time worrying about compliance.

Under the hood, we rely on a number of data partners to streamline KYC checks and have our own bank-grade compliance platform to enable real-time monitoring and reporting. We are currently in the process of applying for a bank license in the U.K. with the PRA and FCA.

  • API and UI workflows for KYC, AML and CTF checks for end customers
  • PEP/sanctions screening for individuals and companies
  • Automatic generation of required regulatory reports
  • Card network blacklist filtering
  • Regulatory authorization (depository and payments permissions) pending approval from the PRA and FCA
  • Screening for bad actors using data from the rest of the Griffin network
