Today, 25 October 2021, marked an important step in Bank Norwegian’s growth story. At appr. 11:00 today Bank Norwegian entered its fifth country of operations, opening up the digital channels offering unsecured loans, credit cards and savings accounts in the Spanish market.
“The Spanish market is an interesting market for consumer lending, and we believe that the timing is right for our digital lending products as the country is recovering from the pandemic. I had the pleasure being part of the previous expansions out in the Nordics and we follow the same recipe this time, providing customers with digital solutions that are easy to use at competitive prices. I am very happy to have been heading this project that is now becoming a part of Bank Norwegian’s daily operations ” says Merete Gillund, Head of New Markets in Bank Norwegian.
“I am so excited to see this happening as planned, and I want to extend my sincere gratitude and thank you to all our employees and vendors actively contributing to this launch. The bank is more robust than ever, seen from the way we work, governance, credit models and processes, paired with a prepared organization and financial strength to take on growth. We look forward to start serving Spanish customers, offering them digital, easy to use and transparent products. Later this year we will continue our expansion and launch in Germany”, says Klara Lise Aasen, Interim CEO and CFO of Bank Norwegian.
