In the second half of 2024, Santander will introduce a new nationwide digital offering in the US under the Openbank name. Within the same timeframe, Openbank is going to be launched in Mexico.

Openbank uses a technology platform that was created internally at Santander and combines functionality and design to offer a safe, straightforward, and foremost user experience.

In addition, it provides a user-friendly interface with fintech pricing and the reliability of a multinational bank.

Over two million people use Openbank in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Germany, and the Netherlands), and it has larger deposits than any other digital bank with €18bn ($19.5bn).

With the arrival of Openbank in the US, Santander is delivering a modern yet secure cloud-based banking platform for the first time by integrating all of its recognised proprietary technology.

By creating deposits to support its auto franchise, Santander US will be able to move more quickly toward implementing its lucrative development plan due to the opening of Openbank.
