Starling Marketplace unveils latest partners
Written by Chris Lemmon
Starling Bank has announced that Pensionbee will be rolling out on its in-app Marketplace platform, with Wealthsimple, Habito and Kasko also set to join in the coming weeks.
The Marketplace platform, which launched last June, has been designed to offer a range of products from various FinTech companies, providing customers with the opportunity to easily access these services by securely connecting to them via an API.
Starling, which recently announced a partnership with Flux for digitised loyalty rewards, has plans to integrate solutions from 25 FinTech partnerships in 2018.
Megan Caywood, chief platform officer at Starling, said: “The expansion of our Marketplace is a huge milestone for Starling as we continue to give our customers control of their money like never before. We are building a banking experience fit for the 21st Century, where the best financial products are available securely in one place.
“Last year, we launched our full set of Open APIs, and enabled integrations with companies like Moneybox, Yoyo Wallet, Yolt, Tail, and Flux. Now we're excited to take that to the next level by integrating financial services providers into the Starling Marketplace.”
Clare Reilly, head of corporate development at Pensionbee, added: “For the first time ever in the UK, customers can see their real-time pension balance, alongside their real-time current account balance. That’s real-time customer empowerment, and a big step towards linking the small financial decisions you make daily, to the retirement income you will have tomorrow - all in one place.”
