Should I leave my bank for Emerge?

May 19, 2022

We’d love you to, but you don’t have to. And in some cases, you definitely shouldn’t. 

There are things banks can offer, that right now, we can’t - interest, loans, credit, overdrafts, etc. If your business is reliant on any of these to continue operating you’d be foolish to move your entire business into an Emerge account and we wouldn’t let you. 

The beauty of Emerge is it can supplement your existing bank. It doesn’t need to replace it. And yes, you can have more than one business bank - you can have as many as you want.

You can keep your relationship with your bank to ensure access to overdrafts or credit but move all of your day-to-day - the bits that are really frustrating with traditional banks like employee expenses & reconciliation, payroll, receipt capture, team cards, customer service, having to visit bank branches, etc - to Emerge.

But, you can absolutely use Emerge as your business bank account

All that said, if you’re a founder and you need a business bank account now - we’re you’re go-to. The same is true of any business owner that doesn't need access to credit for their business. 

We provide the same services as your bank does for your business, day to day - but better!

Why we’re different to banks

Our entire goal is to provide a business banking experience that is 100 times better than we’re currently given by Kiwi (or not Kiwi in most cases) banks. 

To do this we’ve leant heavily into tech innovations to make it faster, more efficient and easier for you as a business owner or leader to operate. But we’ve also put a huge emphasis on the human side too. We don’t want to talk to you as if you’re a statistic, we’re talking to you like a mate and we’re there for you 24/7 (like any good mate).

Sound interesting?
