Founded in 2015, Bud began life as an education platform designed to improve people's financial wellbeing. Now, Bud is a platform used by global banks to harness the power of open banking and to make life better for their customers.
What we do
Bud is building a financial ecosystem to underpin modern banking: one that seamlessly connects people to financial products & services that improve their lives.
We are obsessed with solving real financial problems experienced by people.
Our platform connects people, through the banks they trust, to financial products that make their lives better.
We exist to make life feel more achievable for everyone. We achieve that scale by working with institutions who have millions of customers
We put the security of data above all else and use advanced encryption techniques.
We train machine learning models on anonymised data to protect people’s privacy.
We only use data to benefit people and build tools to meet their needs.
We make sure our clients understand how and why we use data because we believe in responsible innovation.
We’re accountable to clients and regulators (including the FCA and ICO) and we hold our team to the highest standards.
We’d rather step away from an opportunity than compromise on these principles.
We spend our days immersed in Open Banking, looking for new ways to add meaning and context to financial data. Our blog is where we publish what we find.
