Multitude SE: Announcement of rebranding subsidiary, Ferratum Bank p.l.c., to Multitude Bank p.l.c.

Helsinki, 04 October 2022 – Multitude SE (“Multitude” or “the Group”) announces its subsidiary, Ferratum Bank p.l.c., to be rebranded and renamed to Multitude Bank p.l.c. (“the Bank”). Renaming the Bank is part of a broader rebranding by Multitude SE, which was, until June 2021, called Ferratum Oyj. The new name represents the Bank’s growing national and international presence and allows for easier association with the Group.

Multitude Bank, with a full European banking license, is the regulatory backbone of Multitude Group and acts as a key service provider to the customers of Multitude’s growth platform. The growth platform enables businesses to grow and scale faster through its centralised core operations. The renaming associates the Bank closer with the Group and shows alignment in their strategies to position Multitude’s growth platform as an integral part of creating the most valued financial ecosystem.

“The new name shows our unity and direct connection with and to the Group. It was a natural step after the Group rebranded from Ferratum to Multitude. It also shows how we as a bank have evolved and are proud to have grown our offering over the years and now catering to businesses in addition to consumers.” Said Antti Kumpulainen, CEO of Multitude Bank

In addition to its new name and logo, Multitude Bank has launched a new website (www.multitudebank.com).
