We at Genome are proud to be acknowledged as a part of the Lithuanian Fintech landscape. As of 2020, there are over 200 Fintech companies here, and thanks to that Lithuania became the largest Fintech hub within the European Union by the number of licensed companies and was placed 4th in the Global Fintech Rank.
It feels great to make a contribution to the country’s development, and we want to continue doing so. Hence, Genome is annulling all the service fees for companies based in Lithuania and for all our existing Lithuanian clients starting August 17th, 2020. We are also lowering the SEPA transfers fees – you will only pay 0,06 EUR per incoming and 0,11 EUR for outgoing transfers instead of 1 EUR for both services.
Not only do we want to give back to our Lithuanian business community, but also hope that these bonuses will help out companies that were negatively affected by the pandemic. As for the latter, Genome already has experience in supporting low-risk companies that faced severe consequences of the lockdown, so supporting local businesses is the next thing to do.
