We have also been featured on the FinTech50 — the list of Europe’s top 50 fintechs — every year since 2016, ranking in the top 5 in 2018 and 2019. 

Our marketplace is available in over 30 countries across Europe through www.raisin.com, with dedicated country platforms in Germany, Spain, the UK, Austria, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands. Since launching in December 2013, we have brokered €16 billion in savings for more than 200,000 satisfied customers to more than 80 partner banks. Our distribution partners, such as Commerzbank, o2 Telefónica Deutschland, N26, ClearScore and Yolt among many others, extend Raisin’s impact as well as their own range of offers: they make our deposits marketplace available to their customers.
