Who we are

About Vivid Money

Vivid combines the worlds of banking and investing in one single mobile app. We believe dealing with finances should be easy and accessible for everyone. We are on the way to making it real for everyone in Europe.

Your financial life, our mission

We believe everyone should have access to financial success

For too long, investing was seen as something only the rich could afford. The rest of us had to sit by and watch our hard-earned money get eaten up by fees. We’re saying: enough.

We believe everyone should be allowed to grow their money. That means low- and no-fee banking. That means accessible investing services. That means financial education is simple, accessible language

Germany-based. Europe-wide

Since our launch in June 2020, we’ve grown from one tiny office in Berlin’s Neukölln neighbourhood to a company of more than 300 people. Our headquarters are in Germany, but we work wherever there's wi-fi.

A team of proven experts

Today, our team consists of more than 30 nationalities. Together we make banking and investing accessible to everyone through our app. Whether you're our customer or colleague, you'll always be a priority.

How it all started

The idea for Vivid Money came about in 2019. We saw a world where the rich were getting richer, and the poor were getting poorer. At the core of this problem, we saw the way people access their money. We wanted to change that.

It started as a small side project by our founders Artem and Alexander. It’s turned into a company with over 300 employees all over the world. We’ve come far, but we’re still at the start of our journey. With you, we want to keep growing and changing.
