Let’s start from the beginning…
FV Bank was founded in 2018 by two payments entrepreneurs. Miles Paschini and Nitin Agarwal knew that investing in cryptocurrencies and other alternative asset classes would become an essential part of investment portfolios in the future.
We’re a challenger bank based in Puerto Rico, US, started as a global digital bank. Since 2018, we’ve grown to become a full-service bank that seamlessly integrates traditional banking and digital assets management into a single regulated account.
Licensed by the Office of the Commissioner of Financial Institutions, FV Bank has an ambitious roadmap to deliver an exceptional experience for its blockchain, crypto, and fintech customers.
We’re pursuing success in digital customer engagement and acceleration of innovation. Over the past years, FV Bank entered into dozens of strategic partnerships with tech giants and has been approved as a Visa Principal Member.
The team that redefines digital banking globally and shapes the future of financial services includes industry veterans, passionate innovators, and visionaries.
