A European first: Raiffeisenlandesbank partners with Bitpanda to offer digital asset investment

2 mai 2023

Raiffeisenlandesbank NÖ-Wien, which forms part of Austria’s leading banking group, has become the first major traditional bank in the European Union to move into digital assets through a planned collaboration with Bitpanda Technology Solutions.

„In what’s a first among traditional banks in the EU, RLB NÖ-Wien is set to become a pioneer with its plans to include cryptocurrencies and other asset classes in its digital investment offering.” – according to a Bitpanda’s blog.

All this will be made possible via Bitpanda’s cutting-edge API-driven and fully secure ISO 271001-certified infrastructure, and will come complete with the look and feel of Raiffeisen’s iconic branding — their design, our technology.

Based in Vienna, RLB NÖ-Wien has always had a forward-thinking approach to modern regional and commercial banking services. „By committing to future collaboration with Bitpanda and the possible implementation of stocks* and ETFs, crypto, commodities* and precious metals as part of its offering — all from as little as just €1 — they’re continuing to help their customers to reach their financial ambitions.” – the company explains.

So far via Bitpanda Technology Services, German digital bank N26, German cloud banking platform Mambu, UK fintech Plum, Italian neobank Hype and more have all successfully introduced a dependable investment platform that meets the highest regulatory standards to their customers.
