How they describe themselves: We are a company founded by expats, inspired to create the first premier global banking experience by the excessive amounts of time and money lost to outdated international banking standards. Before Denizen, living or working abroad required juggling bank accounts, paying loads of fees, and planning weeks in advance for the simplest of financial transactions. We knew it didn’t have to be this way, and decided to act. We created Denizen because living between multiple countries is complicated, but managing your finances doesn’t have to be. Denizen is based in San Francisco, California and Madrid, Spain. We’re supported by advisors with countless years of industry experience and by one of the world’s most respected financial institutions: BBVA.
How they describe their product/innovation: Say goodbye to the hassles of international banking. Created specifically for people living abroad or working in different countries, Denizen eliminates unnecessary fees and services to make banking – and your life – easy. No international fees, long delays to access money, or juggling accounts in multiple places. As a company founded by expats, we understand the complexity of banking across countries.
