Newtek, an internally managed business development company (BDC), has selected the Apiture Digital Banking Platform to support the digital capabilities of Newtek Bank.

The Newtek Bank is currently pending regulatory approvals and the close of the acquisition of the National Bank of New York City (NBNYC). Newtek plans to leverage Apiture’s Business Banking and Account Opening solutions in combination with Newtek’s existing suite of business and finance solutions and the Newtek Advantage to deliver a suite of financial and business solutions and services to independent business owners.

Newtek previously announced an agreement to acquire NBNYC, a nationally chartered bank, and to reposition Newtek as a bank holding company with financial holding company status, pending regulatory approvals. As part of this transition, Newtek chose Apiture, to power online and mobile banking for its new digital brand as it creates a technology-enabled bank for independent businesses. Newtek has been working with Apiture for several months to prepare for the opening of Newtek Bank, subject to regulatory approval and the close of the acquisition.
