By @SimonCocking. Interview with Nigel Green CEO for the deVere Group Senior Operating & Management Executive with strong international management experience Blog:

Describe the company – the elevator pitch …

deVere Vault is a global e-money app, designed by expats for expats, internationally-mobile individuals and firms.  It is the first step into the fintech sector by deVere Group, one of the world’s largest independent financial advisory organisations.

You will be able to open a deVere Vault account in five minutes, withdraw money from any cash machine worldwide, get real-time notifications with all your transactions, spend money on the card wherever Mastercard is accepted, and send and receive money in most major currencies instantly with other deVere Vault account holders.

How are you different?

After more than 15 years dominating the international financial advisory space, we know probably better than anyone else what expats and globally focused organisations want and need in terms of financial solutions. The e-money app has been created for today’s globalised world in response to growing demand for an app of this nature.

Why will the company / product do well?

It will do well because the market is crying out for an app like this; an app designed for the 21st century.  It’s convenient, secure and people no longer have the time or inclination to go to a branch of their bank.  We’re increasingly accustomed to doing everything on the go from our smart phones and/or tablets.

Where are you based?

deVere Vault is headquartered in the Lithuanian capital, Vilinus, which is at the epicentre of a fintech revolution.

When was the company launched?

The deVere Vault app was launched today. deVere Group, the parent company, was launched in 2002.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

We’re aiming for expats, internationally operational firms and the wider 18-45 demographic worldwide, who are the ones who are driving demand for this kind of product.

Tell us about your team?

From the admin, support and compliance staff, to the software designers, marketers and managers, our team comprises some of the best talent in the industry.  We feel very lucky to have such a group of people – all of whom are dedicated and committed to achieving the best client experience for each and every deVere Vault user.

What are your long term plans for your product / company?

We are out to shake-up the traditional banking sector. Watch this space!

What are your favourite tech gadgets?

I travel constantly with my work, literally tens of thousands of miles a month,  so I couldn’t work effectively without my iPad or smart phone.
