FinTech Cashplus secures a full UK banking license
FinTech Cashplus, a digital banking services provider to the UK businesses, has reportedly secured a full UK bank license. Cashplus, the UK’s newest bank, provides current account and lending services for small businesses and consumers. The development enables Cashplus to use part of the £500 million in deposits from its 1.6 million customers for lending. The firm says it aims to provide £1bn of credit to UK small businesses to support the UK’s post-Covid-19 recovery.
