Opening a bank in a high-risk industry?

Do you have a business that is considered to be high-risk? And you cannot secure a bank account?

It is more difficult to open a bank account for a company in a high-risk industry, compared to companies in traditional industries. This is due to KYC/AML requirements typically set out by central banks and other regulatory bodies.

It is important to know that there are niche banks (both traditional and digital) that service high-risk industries. FirmEU can assist in laying out the banking options for companies in high-risk industries. If you want to speak to one of our consultants, contact us down below with the contact form

How FirmEU can assist

Companies that operate in high-risk industries typically have a hard time finding suitable banking solutions. For them, a digital bank that provides a specialized high-risk merchant account can be the optimal choice. These accounts are designed specifically for businesses with substantial monthly sales (over €20,000) or those that are located in high-risk countries. Traditional bank accounts usually aren’t suitable for such organizations, even though they may seem like an attractive option.

High-risk banking is easier to access when working with an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) since they perform their own risk assessment for businesses based on location, activities, and ownership structure. However, there will still be a list of prohibited countries when setting up the account, just like with any other banking institution.
