Tearsheet: Best SMB Digital Banking Vision & Strategy: Arival Bank
Tearsheet doesn’t frequently cover early stage fintech and it doesn’t generally give awards to early stage firms. But for this year’s Best SMB Digital Banking Vision and Strategy Award, sponsored by Strands, our industry judges really liked Arival Bank. Arival is an internal venture spun out of Life.SREDA, a venture capital fund that invested in digital banking pioneers. The company serves SMBs and startups globally that don’t fit the model of traditional banks. Arival is built as a platform to easily integrate other fintech offerings while supporting back office compliance.
