Tungsten Bank Launches Deposit Offering

Tungsten Bank announced deposit offering. The deposited monies will provide additional financing capability to its Tungsten Early Payment invoice finance business. Tungsten Bank is now offering cash-rich companies an opportunity to place short-term deposits at competitive rates. As of March 9, 2015, it is offering 1.5% p.a. gross interest on 35-day notice sterling deposits and up to 1.85% p.a. on one year sterling deposits. The proceeds will be used by Tungsten Bank to provide additional invoice financing through its Tungsten Early Payment product. Tungsten Early Payment enables businesses to maximise their cash flow by taking early payment on selected invoices. Tungsten Bank finances invoices sent over the Tungsten Network, whose customers account for over 56% of the Fortune 500, as well as UK and US government entities. To use Tungsten Early Payment, suppliers simply sign up with Tungsten and then select approved invoices for early payment. It operates in a transparent way with none of the fees and red tape that characterise traditional alternatives. Tungsten Early Payment has so far been offered to eligible businesses in the UK and US, and Tungsten has recently received authorisation to offer invoice financing in Germany, France and Italy, with more territories planned.
