The idea for Vivid Money was born in 2019. We saw zero or sometimes even negative interest rates on deposits and how customers were struggling with fruitless efforts to grow their savings. Many people believe that saving and building wealth is only available to a selected few, but we wanted to change this.
We founded Vivid, wanting to bring a colourful and entirely different experience into modern banking. Banking needs to put the customer first — and in control. With our knowledge and experience, we strive to help our customers earn, grow, and increase their capital. Online banking needs to be very easy, and on the other hand, very safe. Vivid is a financial platform that lets customers live their economic life to the fullest and stands out.
During the first year, Vivid grew to more than 130 employees, with more than 20 different nationalities across three different locations.
On the 8th of June 2020, Vivid was launched in Germany as its first market, with more European countries to follow.
