PPF Group was a co-founder of ClearBank back in 2016. Today ClearBank belongs to major neo-banks in the UK. It provides mainly fast and reliable payments, competing with the largest traditional banking institutions. Compared to the majority of fin-tech start-ups, Clear Bank has already reached break even. It has GBP 3 billion in assets and is poised to expand to other European markets this year. „We applied last November for a banking license in the Netherlands and we hope to get the license in the second half of this year“, says ClearBank CEO, Charles McManus in the interview with SZ Business.
