Amsterdam as FinTech Gateway into continental Europe.
PaymentGenes specializes as a one-stop-shop partner applying for Banking, Payments Institution, E-Money Institution Licenses & card scheme membership.
The Dutch central bank is one of the most trustworthy regulators in Europe, making it very popular for FinTech companies entering the EU. Especially with the Brexit, this has only increased, which creates more pressure on the timelines and the amount of applications they can handle at the same time. We help with your market entry, from research and country deep dives towards market engagement with potential partners and clients.
Not having the steps done properly “the first time” will result in significant delay which can take a few weeks up to months. This is means a delay in revenue and extra costs. Our Regulation and Licensing services facilitate your company’s enter to the Continental European market with the appropriate license from the Dutch Central Bank and additional services tailored to your specific needs. Our clients’ business considerations are our expert’s challenges. We are committed to turning them into growth opportunities for all stakeholders.
As PaymentGenes Consultancy we review your documents and flag the missing elements.
We advice on how to get your documentation up to par and do the work for you if needed.
We file the application and become your liaison officer towards the Dutch regulator (DNB).
We will support you in ‘putting the dots on the i’ to complete your license application: “Welcome to Amsterdam!”.
Based on your specific needs we will support your Dutch branch with tailored sourcing (permanent, interim and / or consultancy).
Depending on the maturity of your documentation and your capability to fill identified gaps with your team and our support, the expected throughput time of your application process will be ten to twelve months. The actual license application process is expected to take between six to eight months.

The process was very professional with an extraordinary level of dialogue with the PaymentGenes consultants.

As many payments companies still struggle to deal with large quantities of data, otherwise described as Big Data, there have been some interesting developments in the ecosystem that will dramatically shift the landscape of payments.
We are beyond excited to finally inform you about our strategic joint venture, service expansion, and new team members. We’ve focused on understanding the payment community's demands, currently, in 5 years from now and even later. As a result, we aligned industry demands with our long-established goals and as of today, we can publicly share our service Extension.
It wasn’t so long ago that CEO’s and large banks were convinced that bank locations would always be necessary to service their customers. However the last ten years we have seen an emergence of Digital Banks, that have never and will probably never own a physical location, but still manage to grow their user base and add additional services including insurance, mortgages and loans.
