Reaffirming the strong demand for a digital bank where all processes can be completed online, Jenius Bank will continue to develop and enhance its products and services while proactively incorporating customer feedback.

Jenius Bank's momentum is an example of how SMBC Group is achieving sustainable and steady growth in the US consumer banking market. SMBC Group will continually create new businesses that best serve and add value to customers in the rapidly evolving digital financial environment.

Jenius Bank was established as the digital banking division of SMBC MANUBANK.

In addition to personal loan and savings products, Jenius Bank plans to offer a mobile app in the coming months.
