Transforming Banking Services
We aim to constantly innovate and our mission is to accelerate the transformation of banking services by providing payment accounts that are more easy to open, accessible across devices, multi currency, faster and where possible instant, integrated into other applications, connected to multiple channels, data rich, easy to reconcile, safer and less expensive.
Fire Financial Services Ltd. was established in 2008 by Colm Lyon, who led Realex Payments to be one of Europe's largest online payment gateways - processing over €28B euro per annum for some of the world's leading brands.
While we are not a bank, a Fire payment account is similar to a basic current account. We issue both personal and business customers with payment accounts that are fully inter-operable with the clearing systems in Europe and the UK. These accounts have BIC/IBAN's or sort code/account number similar to other accounts. Customers can open accounts at the click of a button in Euro and Sterling. Fire also offers foreign exchange services enabling transfer of money between accounts in real time.
Fire Financial Services Ltd. is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland as a Payment Institution under the Payment Services Directive and this licence has been passported to a number of European countries.
