Digital Impact Fund

ABN AMRO is investing 10 million euros in innovative startups specialising in the digitisation of financial products and services. A growing number of startups are developing financial products and business models that enhance user friendliness and can provide our private and business clients with more financial insight. ABN AMRO is actively approaching promising FinTech startups that qualify for the Digital Impact Fund.

ABN AMRO is investing in companies that have already launched a product and have entered the growth phase, preferably European FinTechs that can further develop and improve our mobile apps and client portals.

Which companies qualify for the fund?

We invest in startups by providing growth capital and our time. We are making our network, our knowledge and our systems available to these startups. And, in turn, by using the startups’ knowledge, technology and innovative power we can jointly provide our clients with better digital financial products and services.

An important investment criterion is that the startup is involved in developing products and technologies that provide added value not only to our business and private clients but also to the bank’s operations. The fund has made 10 million euros available for this purpose. Each investment will range between 250,000 and 1,500,000 euros.

What do we offer startups?

Smart innovations for our clients

Thanks to ABN AMRO’s partnerships with FinTech startups, our business and private clients can benefit from smart innovations in our service offering.
