Who are we?

We are Safened - a fast-growing fintech scale-up, motivated by a vision to turn financial risk and regulatory challenges into simple and secure solutions. Simple, because we reduce complexity and offer easy-to-integrate solutions to financial institutions and platform businesses. Secure, because we enable our partners to use the world's most stable asset classes while protecting them from fraud, risk and identity theft. That sounds like a mouthful, right? Don’t worry, we’re happy to explain it in more detail down the line. For now, just rest assured that we do cool stuff and it’s going well. And we operate globally, with offices in London, New York, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. To get a feel for the atmosphere here, you can check out this video:
