by August 31, 2021

Vietnamese digital bank Cake announced that it has selected cloud banking platform Mambu to scale its business towards offering a full suite of digital banking services.

Launched in January 2021, Cake is a collaboration between Be Group, the organisation behind Vietnam’s ‘Be’ ride-hailing app, and Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank).

The products and services offered by Cake are fully licensed by the State Bank of Vietnam through VP Bank, with beFinancial which is a part of Be Group, looking after the operations of the new digital bank.

Cake is the first digital banking solution attached to a ride-hailing app in Vietnam, and will enable access to financial services for as many as 10 million existing Be customers and drivers, primarily Gen Z and young professional consumers.

said Mr Nguyen Huu Quang, CEO of beFinancial.
