We use cutting-edge technology, including AI, and the latest market insights to help our customers with financial advice, save on their utility bills, get lower interest loans and increase the value of their savings through an automated money saving and earning platform – all to make our customers’ lives easier. 

Our customers’ safety comes first. Aion’s top security specialists ensure that, thanks to the newest technological solutions, our security procedures exceed the international standards and provide for the safety of our customers’ money.

The bank is backed by the global investment fund Warburg Pincus and is managed by seasoned international senior executives with extensive expertise in growing financial institutions.
