Revolutionizing the way money works.

Launching in the Philippines in 2020.

About TONIK

TONIK is a transformative digital bank on a mission to revolutionize the way money works in Southeast Asia.

We are addressing the US$140 billion retail deposit and US$100 billion unsecured retail lending opportunities in the Philippines. We believe the existing Filipino banking customers and the 70% of the Filipinos that remain unbanked deserve a better choice - a digital-only bank that is simple, not intimidating, helps them save, all at the click of a button.

As the world leader in internet and social media usage, we believe Philippines is ripe for becoming a world leader in digital banking too. We plan to make it happen.

We are the first digital-only bank in Southeast Asia. We provide retail financial products, including deposits, loans, current accounts, payments, and cards on a highly secure digital banking platform.

Innovation is woven into the DNA of our company. We put customers first. We challenge the status quo. We are relentless. We are passionate about improving people's financial lives through the use of technology.

Our Team

Our team members have built over 30 digital and retail banks in emerging Markets across the globe. And we decided that it should be done differently this time. We decided to build a bank that will give back to the customer the power to build his financial future by using digital, mobile-first technology.

I want to open a bank account without leaving my sofa.

I don't need a savings account. What I need is a bank with tools that help me and my family save.
