The World Bank has set 2020, as a target year to achieve Universal Financial Access (UFA). This initiative calls for adults everywhere to have access to a transaction account to store money, send and receive payments. Banktotal have a well formulated strategy to play a part in helping them deliver on this.

Employing blockchain and cloud-based solutions, the venture leverages technology and software to digitize and streamline retail banking for emerging economies. Focusing primarily on Africa and Asia, Banktotal will also make available shariah-compliant products, to this market.

Banktotal are delighted to announce the appointment of leading brand agency ‘SomeOne’— The firm behind the rebrands of WorldPay, MarketInvoice, Eurostar, UK Parliament & The Royal Opera House — to act as brand and digital marketing consultants for their forthcoming international roll-out with DVC Consultants, the London based management Consulting firm, which specialise in disruptor and challenger brands, established, in conjunction with a Gulf based VC Fund, the FinTech Challenger Banktotal earlier this year.

Utilising their proprietary consulting process L.O.A.F (Leadership and Organisation in Anarchic Flux) and through their Strategic Alliance and Joint Venture Division, the venture is focused on the unbanked and underbanked in emerging economies.

Banktotal carries a disruptive philosophy. They believe technology is subordinate to function, and that the user experience is everything. They focus on the end as much as the means. They understand customer pain points and bank limitations. Banktotal is building a global network to make payments, collections and offer savings and loans at a significantly reduced cost.

Quentin Anderson Co-Founder and CEO of Banktotal said “We are delighted to be working with Simon Manchipp and the wider team at SomeOne. We first worked together over a decade ago, on a brand launch for the Kuwait Finance House and the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain and I value his strategic and creative approach enormously.”

Simon Manchipp, Founder & Executive Strategic Creative Officer at SomeOne “It’s tremendously exciting to help technology push further than the preserve of a rarified few. This endeavour promises to open the benefits of banking to an unserved many — we’re primed and ready to help amplify the immense potential of Banktotals reach” .
