Jacksonville, Fla., September 21, 2020 — Finxact, the leader in Core as a Service banking, announced today that Live Oak Bank (Live Oak), the nation’s leading small business bank, is now powering its digital banking ecosystem with the Finxact core. This week the bank began offering business savings and CDs on the Finxact platform to Live Oak’s rapidly growing deposit customer base. Finxact is also currently powering the bank’s PPP loan portfolio that is helping over ten thousand small businesses, including both new and existing customers.
With over $8 billion in assets, Live Oak is one of America’s most active small business lenders, with specific expertise in SBA 7a and USDA programs. In choosing Finxact’s core computing platform for its retail operations, Live Oak is now able to better meet the evolving needs of its customers during this era of rapid change by improving integration among banking channels, lowering operating costs, and shortening the time to market for new products.
“This is a significant milestone for Live Oak Bank. We have put an incredible amount of energy into recreating the financial services landscape, and a modern core is key to that transformation. As we move forward, the possibilities of what we can build for our customers are endless,” said Chip Mahan, Live Oak Bank Chairman and CEO.
