A new pan-European challenger bank is about to be launch. Code name: Kopernik.

31 iulie 2018

Poland-based mBank, along with involvement from Commerzbank, have announced the impending launch a new pan-European challenger bank, according to thepaypers.com.

The project’s code name is Kopernik and it will initially target Germany. It is understood the project will use the digital operations of mBank and Commerzbank (including Comdirect in Germany). It will be based on the technology developed and used by mBank in Poland – including its channels and core banking system.

In 2017, mBank started to license its mobile and online banking system to other financial institutions outside Poland. The first taker was La Banque Postale in France. According to Polish newspaper Puls Biznesu (Business Pulse), work is underway in Warsaw and Frankfurt.

The project name Kopernik should not be confused with Kopernik Bank in the US. The latter can trace its origins back to 1924, when Kopernik Building and Loan Association of Baltimore City was founded.

Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”
