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.
