The Bank of Latvia also indicates that the expected deadline for the final decision on the application is April 22 of this year.
"For the past two years, these are the first weeks when the INDEXO team is not dealing with banking licensing issues because all questions have been answered, and documents have been submitted. Now, we are awaiting the decision of the European Central Bank and hope that the regulator will not need time until April 22. We have been in active dialogue for more than a year, and we hope to receive the license sooner than the specified deadline for document review," says Valdis Siksnis, Chairman of the INDEXO Board and one of the company's founders.
INDEXO has submitted a complete package of licensing documents for regulatory review, and the necessary capital for the first 36 months of operation of the new bank has also been secured. The new INDEXO Bank would be ready to start serving clients shortly after obtaining the license.

In 2023, work on a secure and modern IT infrastructure for the bank has been completed, the INDEXO Bank mobile application with all necessary integrations for impeccable customer experience has been created, and basic products for individuals - payment accounts, payments and cards, savings accounts and deposits, loans, and, of course, convenient administration of the 3rd pension level - have been developed. After obtaining the license, INDEXO Bank will start its operations by serving individuals, while services for businesses will be introduced in 2024.
