Dutch neobank Bunq enters partnerships with Mastercard and Nvidia

Bunq’s Partnerships and Initiatives:

  • Mastercard Partnership:
    • Bunq has partnered with Mastercard to leverage its Open Banking platform.
    • This allows Bunq customers to add accounts from any bank to their Bunq app.
    • Users will gain a complete overview of their finances and spending insights across all accounts.
    • Bunq’s AI assistant, Finn, will enrich these insights by incorporating transaction data from multiple banks.
    • Bunq claims to be Europe’s first bank to leverage AI in open banking.
    • Approximately 40% of surveyed users showed a significant increase in app usage with the new features.
    • The open banking features are available in France, Germany, and the Netherlands, with plans to expand across Europe.
  • Nvidia Partnership:
    • Bunq has partnered with Nvidia to enhance fraud and money laundering detection capabilities using generative AI (GenAI).
    • Nvidia’s GPUs will power Bunq’s AI-driven transaction monitoring system and accelerate its data processing pipeline.
    • Bunq reports nearly 100 times faster training for its fraud-detection model using Nvidia’s Rapids suite of GPU-accelerated data science libraries.
    • This results in improved model accuracy and reduced false positives.
    • Bunq is also exploring Nvidia’s NeMo Retriever offering to boost the response accuracy of Finn.
    • Initial testing of NeMo Retriever embedding NIM has been positive, and Bunq plans to enhance Finn further with this collaboration.


  • Mastercard Collaboration: Enhances open banking features and financial insights.
  • Nvidia Collaboration: Utilizes AI for improved fraud detection and better customer experience.
  • Impact: Significant increase in app usage and enhanced security measures for Bunq customers.
