Share this post

UK-based fintech Arro Money has launched a crowdfunding campaign with plans to tackle the issue of financial exclusion in the UK and beyond.  There are currently 1.5 million people in the UK without a bank account, and working with partners such as Wirecard and Mastercard, Arro Money are aiming to dramatically reduce that.

An emerging programme of global financial services provider Wirecard card solutions; Arro Money promote financial inclusion.   They provide accounts to those with short or complex address histories, and those who have had previous difficulties with high street banking.

Arro Money is currently well funded with £4million of internal funding already invested.  The additional £1million funding raised through Crowdcube will go towards a larger development team, introducing multilingual customer support, building on the technology based onboarding system and extending communications to a wider audience.

“This initial crowdfunding campaign will help us to develop our current offering, demonstrate what the technology is capable of and give investors of all sizes the chance to be a part of Arro Money,” says CEO and co-founder Muhammed Asim.

“We’re looking to create a community of early investors that can see the potential in tackling a problem as serious and widespread as financial inclusion, initially in the UK but long term, in Europe.”

Commenting on the partnership, Brian Lawlor, Director of Sales and Business Development at Wirecard, explained: “Arro Money is a key Wirecard partner and a fast growing fintech, we see this an exciting opportunity for people to invest and be part of the journey and ultimately successful growth of their business”

Arro Money’s license already enables them to operate in Europe, and their long-term plans include a launch to the rest of the EU within the next 5 years, where 37 million people still lack access to formal financial services.  In addition, they are looking to promote their technology as a white label solution to enable businesses of all sizes to launch their own account offering.

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
