The IBank Story
What is IBank? You could say we're the world's first "Un-Bank". No matter where you live and regardless of your financial situation. IBank is the only global, cloud-based bank with the services and features you need and expect from a traditional bank - and some features you'd never expect a bank could provide. And IBank's "Bank Where You Shop"™ Model means no need for Internet connections or smart mobile devices. And the best feature of all- NO FEES
We understood that money moves in circles, not in straight lines. What, exactly, does that mean? Well, simply this; it moves from person to person, person to business, business to business and business to person. And that process is repeated over and over again. IBank isn't just a Payment, Money Transfer or Disbursement system. IBank is a Financial Ecosystem that can do all of those things - and do them more efficiently. IBank will become the New Standard in Banking.
Most companies use these same words when describing their Values; "Integrity", "Customer Satisfaction", "Teamwork", etc. We felt it was more important to go a bit deeper to explain how we work and what drives us as a company.
Build Trust - For us, this is Job #1. Someone once said, "When you make a promise, you build hope; when you keep it, you build trust." It's a relatively simple principle but it covers a lot of territory; and it is the foundation of our remaining values.
Don't Disrupt - Innovate - The word “disruption” is heard quite often. In fact, disruption has become one of the most overused words in the business world - particularly in our industry. But what does it really mean? By definition, "disruption" isn't a positive term. Some seem to think that in order to have positive change you need to turn things upside down and inside out. The truth is, we see a lot of disruption but very little in the way of positive change - particularly for the vast majority of people that could use a little positive change in their lives. Our mission is simple: Innovation for positive change.
Be Empathetic - This is another principle that covers a lot of territory. Most entrepreneurs just want to "fix things" and often end up creating solutions to problems that never existed in the first place. This is where empathy plays a big part: Seeing the world through the eyes of another. Putting yourself in another's shoes and making their problem your problem. Being Empathetic helps us to create more useful and meaningful products. .
Nuture & Inspire - Our company was founded by talented people with decades of industry experience. We use that experience to lead through teamwork, creativity and sound business management. But we won't be around forever - so it is also our responsibility to mentor and inspire those in our organization that will ultimately follow in our footsteps.
Pay It Forward - "Pay It Forward" is not a new concept, in fact, it has been around for over 100 years. Some companies call it "Community Service". Basically, what it means is, when a debt is too large to pay back you pay it forward by giving another the same benefit - the "large debt" being the gifts many, but not all of us, have benefited from over the centuries. Time to "Pay It Forward" to the many that have been left behind.
