At Zenus, we’re pioneers in infrastructure banking and we’re delighted to have partnered with Microsoft, utilizing all available services & resources to support our ambitious growth plans. 

We offer clients the ability to open a US bank account online, from over 150 countries, in under 10 minutes, without the need to be a US citizen OR resident. 

“Launching a global bank is no small feat, and Microsoft have been invaluable partners in getting us to this point. Now, as we look to grow, we’re excited to be expanding our local team to drive operations.” commented Jose A. Diaz, CEO of Zenus Bank.

At Zenus Bank, our approach is to uniquely combine an international banking license, only available in Puerto Rico, with the latest technology to create a truly global bank powered by global talent. 

“To execute our vision, we knew we had to align with the top service providers to deliver our infrastructure and products. Microsoft have enabled the bank to get to market quickly with their fast-track program and banking accelerators. It’s invaluable to us being able to work with subject experts in areas of security, cloud services, AI and machine learning” explained Pedro Martinez, Chief Information Officer for Zenus. 

While rapid expansion is underway with teams growing across LatAm, Europe and the US, Zenus is determined to create additional opportunities for nationals in Puerto Rico. Microsoft’s local support and training has been critical in achieving this. 

“We are excited to support operations of an expanding start-up that is exporting services worldwide powered by Microsoft technology. Banking and Financial services are highly regulated industries and Microsoft’s cloud, Azure, allows digital banks like Zenus Bank to securely develop and scale their operations to grow without compromise” explained Herbert Lewy, General Manager for Microsoft Caribbean. 

The team at Zenus are delighted to work with Microsoft to transform operations and evolve the international banking proposition. With the world opening up again, it’s a great time for Zenus Bank to launch a global, accessible banking solution.
