Our Vision

Welcome Place believes in an innovative vision of banking, one in which interpersonal relationships are prioritized to create economic and social value in favor of the financial inclusion of newcomers.

Our Mission

Create the world’s first bank for newcomers to accelerate their financial inclusion through the power of community.

Our power comes from
our community

Many newcomers come from a culture of community and mutual financial support, which they benefit from informally upon arrival in their host country.

We want to make it possible for them to have access to inclusive banking services and to recreate these ties of solidarity through the expansion of Community-driven Financial Services.

I wish Welcome Place had existed when I arrived in France with my twins seven years ago.
It created a lot of frustration, disappointment, and hopelessness. And now newcomers could be focused on other priorities and be safe with that.

The problem that
we want to solve

  • Lack of awareness

Access to banking services for newcomers is extremely complicated.
When they move to a new country, they do not know the local rules and have no information on how banking services work. They choose offers out of the blue.

 

 

  • Irrelevant  services

The services offered are not adapted to their profile, their needs, or their culture.

  • Access

Many newcomers have difficulty accessing the banking system due to a lack of understanding of their situation by traditional banks.
