Liv. Bank is the digital-only lifestyle bank operated and managed by Emirates NBD Group. Liv. is built by and for millennials.
Liv. Digital Bank needed a flexible and open technology platform to power its vison of seamlessly integrating lifestyle preferences with banking. With the Finacle Core Banking platform powering Emirates NBD’s global operations for over a decade, it was a rather obvious choice for Liv. Digital Bank.
Finacle’s flexible product factory enabled the bank to innovate rapidly and quickly launch Liv. specific products with unique lifestyle-led propositions, and innovative features. The open platform helped Liv. reduce costs and accelerate development of its diverse partner ecosystem.
The choice helped Liv. reduce time and cost to market for its new propositions, and run its operations at remarkably high efficiencies.
Liv. was built on the principles of simplicity, intuitiveness, smart analytics, API connected ecosystems, and digital-native from the beginning. This was unlike other banks that digitize its service offering by replicating many of the traditional products, processes, and services.

They wanted Liv. to tap into the potential of local and global ecosystem partners to enhance capabilities. Its partner network currently includes 25 of the most important lifestyle brands in the UAE.
