- Overnight and fixed-term deposits of various banks are now available for 150,000 flatex customers
- Unique one-stop-solution for a diversified portfolio strategy including a wide range of top-yield deposit offers

Frankfurt am Main, Germany - More than 150,000 customers of the online-broker flatex, a company of FinTech Group AG (WKN: 524 960, ISIN: DE0005249601, Ticker Symbol: FLA.GR), have now access a wide range of third-party overnight and fixed-term deposit products. Through a cooperation with Deposit Solutions, a fintech start-up backed among others by technology investor Peter Thiel, flatex customers can pick from deposit offers of various financial institutions and add them to their portfolio, just as they are accustomed to with any other security. For the first time, German retail investors now are able to trade financial securities and deposit products using the same current account.

By virtue of this cooperation, online-broker flatex is now the first and only online broker in Germany covering all key elements of a diversified portfolio strategy: a wide range of stocks, structured products, options, mutual funds as well as overnight and fixed-term deposits - and all that via one single account without the need to open various accounts at various banks.

"Once again, we are able to position flatex as the pacemaker and innovator in the online-brokerage business. At the same time, we are expanding the value chain and the offer for our customers", Frank Niehage, CEO of FinTech Group AG, said. "This is part of our efforts to enhance the passive side of our subsidiary biw AG, our full-service bank behind flatex. We expect these measures to make a contribution to our aim of reaching earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of EUR 35m in 2016."

"We are the only provider in the overnight and fixed-term deposits market with a one-account-solution and hence the only platform as efficient and easy to use as an online broker. Through this cooperation we give flatex' customers access to our top yields", Dr. Tim Sievers, the founder and CEO of Ddeposit Ssolutions said.

About Deposit Solutions

Deposit Solutions is the single-account-solution for German savers. The savings-application is a trademark of the Deposit Solutions GmbH. The FinTech company has its headquarter in Hamburg and provides the first open architecture for daily call money and fixed term deposits in Europe. Since 2011 the company has already mediated deposits in excess of Euro 1 billion with its specialized b-to-b applications for savings and time deposits.

Its proprietary technology is unique in Europe and allows banks seeking retail funding to list their savings offers on an open architecture platform. Other banks on the platform can market those offers directly to their own clients who can use them without having to open a new account at another bank. In addition, the daily and fixed deposit rates of partner banks are marketed under the own retail service ZINSPILOT since 2014 directly to savers. Banks can be connected to the service platform ZINSPILOT or use white label applications for the integration of the open-architecture solution in its retail infrastructure.
