The first true online cash loan in Serbia, “iKeš”, is the winner of the “Best Consumer Lending Platform” award in the international selection of “Finovate Awards”. Raiffeisen bank’s loan product, created in cooperation with company NF Innova, is the first banking solution from Serbia to win an award in this competition of the best global digital and technology innovations.
“This prestigious award confirmed that ‘iKeš’ really is a revolutionary loan product, not just in our local banking market”, stated Petar Jovanović, Deputy Chairman of the Managing Board of Raiffeisen banka, on this occasion. “When we introduced this online loan last year, we were pioneers not just in Serbia and this region, but also in the whole Raiffeisen Group, and this award is proof that, as far as innovations are concerned, we can compete internationally as well”.
“iKeš” is a loan entirely processed and disbursed online and available to all citizens, even to those who are not clients of Raiffeisen banka. At the outset of the Covid-19 virus outbreak, such manner of obtaining a loan gained in significance since it enables the client fast and easy access to financial means without any physical contact. In the course of the preceding months, the bank has been registering a growth of approved “iKeš” loans, as well as a high level of customer satisfaction.
Constant improvements of digital services and introducing state-of-the-art technologies are the main features of the long-term partnership between Raiffeisen banka and company NF Innova.
