Finastra places social responsibility at the heart of its culture, bringing people and technology together through financial inclusion, investment in youth and open innovation.
This strategic approach and vision for corporate responsibility was formed at the inception of Finastra. Our dedicated CSR team, which includes many members of our executive leadership team, recognize the role all of our stakeholders play in the pursuit of our objectives to improve the wellbeing of our employees, customers, partners, society and the environment in which we operate.
By focusing on our technology, talent and network we have created a platform for positive social change through philanthropy, education, job creation, economic growth and innovation.
Banking the Unbanked
Finastra works with over 9,000 financial institutions across 130 countries. They use our technology to improve the reach and quality of the services they provide to their clients. Many of their new customers are based in developing regions, where banking services were not widely available. Having access to financial services such as mortgages, business loans, trade finance and digital banking can change people’s lives for the better, and Finastra is acutely aware of this. Banking the unbanked is a core reason why we exist and serves as a great motivation for our teams.
Finastra Volunteer Program
In addition to our global and local CSR initiatives, Finastra encourages its employees to volunteer their time and participate in programs we have created for them to enact positive social change. Our maiden program is the ‘Hour of Code’ from Code.org, which was facilitated by our parent company Vista Equity Partners. The program enables each member of our 4,500+ R&D workforce to take time out to run coding clubs for children and teach software development to less privileged members of society.
Finastra Gives Back
At Finastra, we are committed to the communities where we live and work, and find ways to share our success with others.
