Market resilience

Through our fully regulated marketplace, we offer partner banks a cost-efficient method of diversifying into online cash retail savings deposits. We make it easier for banks to react to the “new normal” through a recognisable, safe and secure online savings platforms that enables cash depositors to quickly, easily and confidently open deposit products.

Our fintech platform has overcome challenges and market volatility and remained focused on meeting the needs of our customers. Due to our online paperwork and wet signature free process, our customers have been able to quickly and easily open and manage savings products online and over the phone without any interruption.

As our platform has been free of interruptions, partner banks have been able to successfully onboard and take deposits throughout the lockdown. As UK savers gravitate to cash savings for capital protection, our traffic levels have increased with no adverse impact on our operational capability.

Diversified access to liquidity

We offer banks access to retail funding that provides a way to even out liquidity profiles. Our operational models feature onboarding and marketing options, with significant build-out for distribution capability, helping banks acquire funding and increase brand exposure and awareness.

Banks that partner with us benefit from cost-effective and operationally efficient liquidity channels. Our platform is free from minimum volume guarantees, and our partner banks control rates, products and inflow volumes, with many of our partner banks opting for inflow targets between £5m and £50m per month.

No setup costs

As our platform operates on a performance-based model dependent on the deposit volumes, there are no direct onboarding costs and no need for further budgets. In fact, through working with partner banks, we find that the operational efficiencies and direct cost of funds benefits that are comparable in cost to inhouse solutions.

All onboarding partner banks have the opportunity to market and distribute their savings products through our network of channel partners. Utilising our distribution channel partners, our partner banks can tailor their products for wealth management channels, investment platforms, private banks and other fintech marketplaces, without any additional budget requirements.

How Raisin UK works

Your money journeyYour money journeyYour money journey

This diagram shows the fully regulated journey of a customer’s money from their bank or building society account to the Starling Bank operated Raisin UK Account and on to the partner bank, including the option to include or exclude Meteor Asset Management’s (MAM) services.

  • Starling Bank provides the service bank functionality of the Raisin UK Account, holding and transferring deposits between the customer, and either MAM or partner bank accounts.
  • MAM acts as a deposit administrator for some of our partner banks, holding deposits in a bare trust arrangement, transferring money in grouped batches between the Starling Bank operated Raisin UK Account and partner bank accounts.

When a customer opens a product through our platform, Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) checks can be carried out by MAM and a partner bank, with the option of using one or both, depending on the preferred operational model. Regardless of the operational model, AML/KYC checks are always carried out by Starling Bank when a customer registers for a Raisin UK Account.
