Source: Sentinels

Mano.bank (‘mano’ in Lithuanian means ‘mine’) is truly a digital bank, delivering easy access to financial products for both individual customers and businesses.

Licensed in 2018 by the European Central Bank. In addition, they address issues of financial inclusion. Mano.bank's mission is to leverage the emerging technologies to simplify banking for all.

“We’re young and we’re growing, so we have a great understanding of the needs of a growing business. Unlike most other challenger banks, we offer a full spectrum of banking services, from cross-border payments and currency conversion, to loans and deposits for both private and business customers. Financial inclusion, ease of use, transparency, and top-notch cybersecurity - that’s how we see today’s banking." - Povilas Sadaunykas, CEO.

Integrating Sentinels into their existing infrastructure is a strategic move for Mano.bank. With Mano.bank’s wide product suite the challenger needed an AML partner that would not only be future-proof, but also flexible enough to support their specific offerings. Sentinels' detection engine, powered by machine learning and editable rules, was the perfect solution for the digital-first financial institution.

"Sentinels has been expanding its offering and capabilities beyond PSPs, and Mano.bank is Sentinel's first challenger bank. We’ve been watching Mano.bank’s incredible progress the past few years, as they are one of the innovative companies responsible for Lithuania’s incredible fintech boom. We are thrilled to welcome them as a new client. It is our goal to build a transaction monitoring solution that would be modular and flexible enough to meet the needs of a broad range of fintechs and realize a step change versus existing compliance processes." - Joost van Houten, Co- founder & CEO, Sentinels.
