Starling flys into banking-as-a-service space

#1

Starling Bank is moving into the banking-as-a-platform space, allowing third party companies to build their own financial services offerings using their infrastructure.


#2

An excellent way of using the licences and infrastructure that the bank already has to generate a new revenue stream. :grinning:


#3

Starling are one of the most diverse challenger’s, and like you said @thom_horne another opportunity to generate revenue.


#4

I’m also thinking that by having products already in the Starling infrastructure, it’ll likely be easier and more attractive to intergrate into the Marketplace too.


#5

Someone posted about it yesterday, as I said then, its a logical step for Starling, but Starling isn’t the first to do it, Clear Bank is doing it purely as a clearing bank aimed at business etc.

There is also a couple of other banks that are working on something similar.

Speaking of infrastructure

I don’t fancy my chances, though it’s worth a shot. Gotta be in it to win it :smiley:
