Today, we’re changing our name from Ubanquity to Layer. We believe that everyone, no matter who they are or where they’re from, should have access to the best financial services.
We have seen how technology has enabled unprecedented evolution in other industries, while banking has remained seemingly frozen in time. In a lagging industry that is not equipped to serve everyone, we believe that we can make that happen.
Ubanquity was founded in 2011 to focus on the various problems that plagued the financial services industry.
Our aim was to equip banks with the tools necessary to accelerate financial inclusion. We started small and focused on solving specific issues for banks. We worked tirelessly digitising and automating their old systems and processes, helping them keep up with the pace of innovation and consumer demand.
Having spent 10 years working with these financial institutions day-in, day-out, we learned that to truly digitally transform a bank, we had to get to the heart of the issue.
To make real change, we needed to build something innovative.
After our decade-long experience, we decided to build a Digital Banking Platform that would address the entire problem, not just part of it. In line with the launch of our new Digital Banking Platform, we decided to rebrand and give our company a fresh feel.
New platform. New brand. New purpose.
So, in 2021, Layer was born.
For our clients, not too much will change right away. We simply become “Layer”. We may have a new look and feel, but we are the same company with the same vision and values.
We’re humbled that so many of you rely on us to help you deliver exceptional banking services to over 25 million customers globally. We’re excited that you can join us on our journey as we build the most innovative banking platform in the world
In these unprecedented times, where adaptability is the key to survival, we are scaling and expanding our reach to cement our presence internationally. We have recruited talent from across the world who have joined us on our mission to become global leaders.
We have penetrated new markets and reached new territories. We are resilient, continuously growing and rising to the challenge in the face of a fast-paced world. We are onto something bigger and better.
We are passionate about what we do and we work hard to make finance inclusive, accessible and better for everyone. We believe we are building the tools that have the power to change lives.
Stay tuned for some huge announcements over the coming weeks and months.
This is only the beginning.
