UK-based fintech Fiinu has selected Estonia-based Tuum as the main banking platform to power its Plugin Overdraft solution.


Fiinu’s Plugin Overdraft aims to add some flexibility to the tightly regulated overdraft market by giving consumers access to an overdraft facility without having to switch banks or current accounts. 

The Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) Strategic Review of Retail Banking Business Models for 2022 revealed that the number of current accounts in the UK has increased by 15% from 87 million to over 100 million over the past four years. Furthermore, 55% of these accounts do not have access to an arranged overdraft.

Tuum’s solution allows customers to link multiple bank accounts to their dedicated Fiinu overdraft account through open banking application programming interfaces (APIs). Fiinu representatives cited by revealed that Plugin Overdraft is bank agnostic and aims to give consumers access to overdrafts that help to build credit and avoid rejection stress.
