Crosskey Banking Solutions, the leading Finnish financial technology service company from Åland Islands with offices in Helsinki, Turku and Stockholm, has signed a membership with Helsinki Fintech Farm (HFF), the operator of the Helsinki Finance Technology Initiative. The news is released in the wake of Finland’s leading finance technology event Future Digital Finance Forum taking place on November 1st Helsinki.
“We are building a unique model for pioneers in digital finance to collaborate, experiment and scale both domestically and internationally. Crosskey’s core banking system, which already years ago was integrated with the Nordic Fintech company Dreams, is a perfect match to our professional ecosystem which already includes such global giants as Amazon and Deloitte,” says Janne Salminen the Head of Helsinki Fintech Farm.
The HFF is preparing to operate a physical hub service in Helsinki in the first part of 2019 to bring all the key players in the finance technology ecosystem closer together physically. “We are firm believers in that the challenges posed by globalization and digitalization can be best addressed by adopting the culture and attitude of an emerging collaboration economy,” explains Ola Sundell, founder and CEO of HUB13 the creator of Helsinki Fintech Farm.
“Helsinki Fintech Farm is doing an excellent job in bridging the gap between banks, startups and regulators and matches perfectly the emergence of serious finance technology ecosystems both globally and regionally. We expect to engage in an open and meaningful dialogue and collaboration on issues of next-generation technology changing the financial markets and make full use of their active network in Finland and Nordics. We are one of the Fintech-pioneers in the Nordics from a banking system perspective, which we proved already years ago when we, together with Ålandsbanken, launched the partnership with Dreams and then shortly thereafter also integrated with Trustly. We went live while many still only were discussing the opportunities and now Dreams are ranked as one of the top 100 Fintechs in the world,” Alexander Aminoff the Sales & Marketing Director of Crosskey points out their motivations in the HFF membership.
