Who we are

Meet the team

We’re a team of dreamers and doers from over 30 nationalities across Europe, with a common vision: make your financial life easier.

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 350 people, across four offices in Berlin, Amsterdam, Dublin and Moscow.

In partnership with

Your goals, 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

A team of proven experts

Today our team consists of 350+ professionals of more than 30 different nationalities, all working together to achieve one goal and create a mobile bank that helps its customers make more from their wealth and grow their money.

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 350 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.
