 We had preparatory meetings with potential partners, who have studied the concept of 1bank4all and found it very interesting to   cooperate with us in order to deliver financial services for those who need it most. The partnerships we are looking for are in the area of   financial services (technologies) and social impact in order to improve many lives through the provision of quality health care, clean water,  affordable housing and education. We are looking forward to announcing the organisations we will partner with in our next newsletter.

  Banking Group

In the banking group, we have refined the business plan of the European bank. We are also currently working on the franchise model of the holding, which will be the basis for the cooperation with all the local 1bank4all network branches in the different countries. Our goal is to start offering much needed financial services as soon as possible.

Marketing Group

The marketing group has been busy with several tasks including planning 1bank4all events and preparing advertising/promotional material, to enhance our visibility. 1bank4all wants to make a big effort in 2018 and in the next newsletter we will tell you about details and how you can support us to become well known. We do hope, that you are all curious and eager to help spread the word about 1bank4all.


We are organising three significant events on 26th April, 2018, for the various individuals and groups who are interested in 1bank4all. We shall hold all three events consecutively. The details are as follows:

  • 1st Advisory Board Meeting. The members of the new 1bank4all advisory board will come together in the morning and discuss the strategy and implementation plans for 1bank4all.

  • General Assembly. The 1bank4all Founding Association will hold a General Assembly for its members.

  • Investment Opportunity for Change Makers. Last but not least, we want to invite you to our event 'Investment Opportunity for Change Makers'. This is an exciting event where we invite everyone who would like to get more information about the 1bank4all project and become a shareholder of the holding of the 1bank4all group. It will be the last opportunity to sign up for shares of the holding.

We hope to see you at one or more of these events. It will be a great opportunity to find out more about 1bank4all and to purchase the holding’s attractive shares. We shall reveal more details about the events soon.
