Pivo Finance provides consumers with a digital-only banking solution, whilst Pivo Plus provides customers with insurance, corporate compliance, and tax regulation assistance.

Between April and September, the number of transactions made on Pivo Business accounts increased by more than 400%. With this money, we plan to improve on products we already have and come up with solutions for supply chain anchors,” she said.
