We aren’t a news portal. We are bankers on a mission to help fellow bankers.¬†Collaboration and knowledge sharing are our key values.

Small caveat: we dislike hidden agendas, political motives and keywords/links aimed at driving readers for promotional purposes.

More about FrankBanker?

Beyond knowledge sharing, we are developing tools that range from simple ones to untangle banking complexity to more brain racking applications to upend the processes. Yes, it includes some vogue words like AI, ML but that’s not the point. Our simple aim is to resolve the friction faced by Bankers across the globe.

Keep watching this space as we move forward, one step at a time. And in case you wish to exchange ideas or explore collaboration, do write to us.
