Ukrainian bank Izibank: account and bank transfers in hryvnias (UAH)

Izibank's history

One of the first so-called "banks without branches" in Ukraine was Monobank, which was part of the TAS group and operated under the license of Universal Bank. In 2020, Anna Tihipko, daughter of TAS Group owner Serhiy Tihipko, founded a new fintech startup called IziBank. In the same year, Monobank stopped cooperating with TAScombank.

The name reflects the essence of the bank: anyone can easily open a bank account without office visits and "paperwork" (izi is a distortion of the English word "easy", which means "easy"). As the founder, Anna Tigipko, herself stated, they strived to "make rather complicated financial issues simple" for their clients.

TAS Financial Group owns Izibank and operates under the license of TAScombank, one of the top ten systemically important and top twenty largest banks in Ukraine, with assets of UAH 32.4 million.

In fact, right after its launch, Izibank offered its clients more than 25 different services, including credit and deposit products and virtual and currency cards.

Financial indicators and ratings

In just two years after its launch, by October 2022, Izibank has already attracted about 280,000 customers, and its loan portfolio has reached UAH 900 million. This is a very modest figure compared to the largest banks in Ukraine, but one should also consider the growth rate, which many large banks are just lagging.

In 2022, Izibank received the FinAwards award, becoming a prize-winner in two nominations at once:

  • Silver — "best deposit";
  • Bronze — "best credit card".

However, the bank has not been assigned a rating, including stability — in this case, you can focus on the indicators of TASkombank with the rating uaAAA, which has been held since 2018.
