Credit Europe Bank Romania becomes a partner of Romanian Fintech Association (Rofin.tech), an association that includes companies founded by Romanian entrepreneurs, which develop technological solutions. The initiative shows the bank's support for innovation and the constant evolution of the Romanian business environment through technology. At the same time, it reconfirms the strategic direction of digitalization, the collaboration with partners in the fintech area being a natural step. The initiative will help Credit Europe Bank Romania develop optimized and simplified services, in line with the banking market trends.
"We decided to support RoFin.Tech to help Romanian fintech companies accelerate the growth and development of new products and services through our knowledge and experience in the financial and banking field. We can provide the necessary resources of testing environments and technological support to member companies. We are looking for collaborations with the members and willing to participate on business and product development.” said Antar Turgay, Chief Cards Officer Credit Europe Bank Romania.
"Credit Europe Bank is one of the banks that, historically, have offered Romanian customers access to financial services based on technology through which they have increased financial inclusion in the market. The Card Avantaj platform is, in the collective consciousness, the first modern form of financing through shopping cards that Romanians have experienced. We are glad to see this bank joining as a support member of the community around RoFin.tech and we hope to announce soon some partnerships between our members and this banking partner", said Cosmin Cosma - Chairman of the Board of the Romanian Fintech Association, CEO & Co-Founder Finqware.

The Romanian Fintech Association was founded in January 2020 and currently brings together 21 members representing start-ups and scale-ups in the financial technology industry (fintech). It has two well-founded objectives since its establishment: connecting the association to national and European financial authorities that can have an impact on the fintech industry, but also creating and facilitating as many development opportunities for members of the association. RoFin.Tech is a founding member of the European Digital Finance Association (EDFA), a European-wide association representing fintech companies across the Union in their interactions with the EU institutions.
