The Company

Established in December 2019, OneBanks is the trading name of Unified Financial Limited.

It is a young company, currently operating remotely. It has a small management team supported by some able advisors and consultants.

It is currently working with many technology suppliers and is being supported by Accenture and KPMG and recently graduated from the 2020 PwC Scale up programme.

Background

OneBanks’ vision is to deliver a platform facilitating everyday banking services and preserving human interaction for the customers of all banks.

Bank Branch closures have left a significant void for many communities in the UK, leaving vulnerable people, SMES, those in rural areas and cash dependent people feeling disadvantaged and abandoned.

To address this, OneBanks has designed and built an ecosystem that provides face-to-face everyday banking services through its kiosks sited in convenient locations (e.g. supermarkets).

Starting in Scotland, OneBanks has an ambitious UK wide Kiosk roll-out. At appropriate junctures, it will consider entering European markets and licensing its technology to 3rd parties.

In addition, OneBanks is working on exciting propositions that will further leverage Open Banking technologies.

Clearly, ‘Product Design’ is at the heart of the business.

OneBanks has a clear vision for what it is trying to achieve and is about to commence a pilot programme at its first Kiosk in Denny, Scotland which will run from February for about 6 months. As part of that it plans to roll out 3 or 4 additional kiosks in 2021.
