Frequently Asked Questions

About Nemea Bank

Bank & Location

  • What is Nemea Bank?

    Nemea Bank is a modern pan-European bank, serving a discerning, international client base of individuals, businesses, institutions and high net worth individuals based in the 31 countries of the EU/EEA area.

    Nemea is one of a small number of online-only banks. It does not operate any physical branches and is structured in a way that allows its clients to carry out all their banking needs wherever they are. In essence, Nemea Bank is with you, everywhere.

  • Where is the head office of Nemea Bank located?

    Nemea Bank’s head office is located at the Portomaso Tower in St. Julians, Malta.

  • When was Nemea Bank founded?

    Nemea Bank was founded on 2 September 2008, upon its licensing as an EU-regulated bank by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA).

  • Where is Nemea Bank domiciled?

    Nemea Bank is domiciled in Malta, a Member State of the European Union since 2004 and a Eurozone country since 2008.

    There are a number of factors which attracted Nemea Bank to offer its pan-European services from Malta, not least of which is Malta’s success as a strong and acclaimed financial services hub. The strength of Malta’s financial services sector lies largely in its capability to transpose EU regulations effectively into its local legal and fiscal framework, the support its regulator provides to the financial services sector to ensure growth, and the role of English as an official language.

    Malta’s financial and economic environment has consistently ranked among the top EU Member States on all fronts. Malta closed 2015 with a GDP growth rate of 6.4%, a budget deficit of 1.5% and the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the EU (5.4%).

  • Does Nemea Bank have any branch offices?

    No. Nemea Bank does not operate any branch offices. All its products and services are opened and maintained online by the client through a simple and user-friendly online banking platform.

    Nemea Bank looks towards the future and not to the past: it does not operate any branch offices as its business model has been geared to meet the needs of modern clients who dislike wasting time in bank queues when they can get their banking done at the click of a button. Our business model is more efficient to run, and saves clients both time and money – the best of both worlds.

  • Why don’t you advertise on traditional media?

    Just as its business model has shifted banking away from physical bank branches and onto the online services environment, so too is Nemea Bank’s approach towards marketing and advertising built along online channels and media networks. Nemea Bank invests very limited time and energy on paid advertising in the print media, and chooses instead to leverage modern viral and online marketing tools to promote its products and services. This is also aligned more closely to Nemea’s social media savvy target clientele.

Products & Services

  • What products and services does Nemea Bank offer?

    Nemea Bank’s spearhead product is the revolutionary NIP, the Nemea Instant Payment, which enables global money transfers for free and in real time. This service is complemented with a growing suite of products and services, including current, savings and term deposit accounts, as well as traditional payment products such as SEPA and international interbank payments. Payment card and consumer lending products will be introduced during 2016.

  • What is Nemea Bank licensed to do?

    Nemea Bank plc is EU-regulated and operates a full banking license and investment services license.

  • Who are Nemea Bank’s clients?

    Practically anybody can become a Nemea client.

    We both provide a full range of services to individual clients online, as well as to business clients. This means that business clients are equally able to submit and update all relevant documentation and register for all their products and services online.

    Nemea Bank’s clients are mostly residents of the 31 EU/EEA member states, be they individuals, businesses, institutions or high net worth individuals. Nemea Bank also welcomes clients from countries outside the EU/EEA region, subject to the regulations imposed by the clients’ countries of origin or residence and all applicable European regulations.

    In general, the vast majority of Nemea clients are well integrated into social media platforms and technologies. They are early adopters of new innovations and technologies, trendsetters and trend followers, and social influencers.

    In a way, a big part of Nemea’s personal banking clientele consists of two sub-segments forming a “smile curve” – on one end the mature international entrepreneur, executive or professional, and on the other, the student or young professional representing younger, emerging generations from 16 years old upwards, without excluding any individuals adept to leveraging the possibilities offered by a truly modern bank created for today’s individual banking needs with a cross-border dimension.

  • Do you accept clients from all countries, including countries outside the EU/EEA region?

    Yes, Nemea Bank accepts clients from all countries, subject to strict due diligence policies and procedures and subject to the regulations imposed by the clients’ countries of origin or residence and all applicable European regulations.

    As a European bank, Nemea always asks non-EEA nationals to support their application with an explanation of their link to Europe. The same question is also made to EEA nationals residing outside the EEA for considerable periods of time. This question is normally asked after the applicant has submitted an application with the Bank.

    It is pertinent to note that currently, the Bank is not accepting retail clients who hold certain specified ties to the United States, such as individuals holding US citizenship (or US dual nationality) or who have tax residence in the US.

    Nemea Bank currently supports current accounts in EUR, USD, GBP, CAD, AUD, DKK, SEK, PLN and CHF currencies, and savings and term deposit accounts with the EUR currency.

Business Model & Goals

  • How does Nemea Bank perceive recent EU policy developments in the fields of banking and financial services?

    Nemea Bank is a profoundly European bank. The core European community developments over the past decade, including the EU Banking Directive, the introduction of the single passport regime for financial services, the Single Euro Payments Area, the International Bank Account Numbers and Bank Identification Codes, have all been in support of the creation and development of pan-European initiatives like Nemea Bank.

    Before fundamental developments such as the single passport regime, a system that allows financial services operators legally established in one EU/EEA Member State to establish and provide their services in all other Member States, Nemea Bank’s business model and operations from a single base would not have been possible. Therefore, EU developments in the field of the financial services as listed above have been essential in making Nemea Bank’s vision a reality.

  • How does technology impact Nemea Bank’s business model?

    Technology is integral to Nemea Bank’s business model. Technological innovation and developments, the growing penetration of Internet and online banking in all EU/EEA countries and beyond, and the rising phenomenon of mobile internet and mobile banking, all support the development of the Bank and its ability to operate without any network of physical branch offices.

    Without the wide-ranging and ever-increasing availability of secure mobile and fixed line broadband Internet access, Nemea Bank’s business model would not have been possible.

    The fairly low level of online banking penetration rates in most countries, intertwined with the inevitable growth in penetration rates and gradual, long-term convergence towards 100% online banking penetration worldwide creates significant structural growth opportunities for the Bank.

  • What is Nemea Bank’s mission? Why was Nemea Bank created?

    Nemea Bank’s mission is really quite simple. We want to transform the way banking is conducted. To orient banking around people’s life patterns, and not the other way round. In short, Nemea’s mission is to make global banking faster, cheaper, simpler, more convenient, accessible and secure, and to offer it with style and substance.

  • What are the vision and objectives of Nemea Bank?

    Nemea Bank’s vision is to transform the way banking is conducted and to assume an international leadership position in developing products, services and platforms that orient banking around people’s life patterns.

    Nemea Bank’s lean business model and its capability to adapt quickly to clients’ needs are key to assuming an international leadership position, allowing the Bank to maintain good profitability and create substantial value to its shareholders and beyond. Profitable growth will help us develop better and better products and services and distribute them to wider audiences, always creating more real value-added to all our current and new clients.

  • What is the strategy of Nemea Bank?

    Our strategy is very simple to understand:

    • We offer the revolutionary NIP, the Nemea Instant Payment, which enables global money transfers for free and in real time, as a core service.
    • The NIP service is complemented with an increasing suite of premium quality financial products and services covering accounts, payments, cards, loans, and savings and investment products. We offer these products and services with style, substance, speed, security and convenience.
    • The funds in the system and the complementary products and services we offer generate interest, fee and commission income to cover our costs and generate a profit.


  • What makes Nemea Bank different from traditional banks?

    Nemea Bank’s lean, streamlined and modern business model, free of the legacies and overheads which have weighed heavily on the cost bases of traditional incumbent banks running networks of physical branch offices and old technologies, results in superior cost efficiency.

    We are able to leverage the most modern technologies because we do not have the need to conserve or adapt to aging IT platforms. As modern technologies offer lower cost and better scalability, the advantage in terms of IT development, which is a key cost item for banks, is evident.

    Our culture emphasizes continuous innovation, allowing our organization to constantly develop and support the generation of new and improved products, services and processes – not only by creating our initial, pioneering approach to banking, but by embedding innovation as a long-term process that helps us become better everyday, benefiting our clients and the banking system in its entirety.

  • What are Nemea Bank’s competitive advantages?

    As one of a small number of online-only banks, Nemea Bank offers an unparalleled user experience, efficiency and comfort in banking. In essence, Nemea Bank is with you, everywhere, and offers its clients:

    • Free and instant worldwide money transfers through the Nemea Instant Payment (NIP) system.
    • An ever-growing suite of premium account, payment and savings products.
    • Highly competitive rates on savings and term deposit accounts, which are made possible by our lean business model and smart investment strategy.
    • The ability to open personal or business accounts, including the submission of all documentation, online from the comfort of one’s home or office without having to ever visit a physical bank branch.
    • Effective client support services using a wide range of communication tools, including LiveChat, offered in 7 different languages.
  • How does Nemea Bank make money and maintain profitability?

    Nemea Bank earns income like any other bank, by generating interest, fees and commissions, and financial income.

    When clients transfer and deposit money at the Bank, their funds are prudently invested by the Bank in loans, deposits, other fixed income instruments and other securities, generating income for the Bank. By offering premium value-adding products and services to complement our core online payment service, interest and fee income are generated.

    Nemea’s business model allows the Bank to operate strongly with much lower income per client than traditional banks, as our costs and overheads would similarly be a fraction of the traditional banks’ relative cost base due to the lean, modern operating platforms and structures we run. This results in better operating margins and efficiency than that of our competitors. Prudent cost management and asset-liability management result in good profitability.

  • What is Nemea Bank’s stand on environmental issues and sustainability?

    Nemea Bank takes its responsibility towards the environment and sustainability very seriously and has clear policies in place to guide the environmental behavior of the Bank’s personnel.

    In its operations, the Bank aims at sustainable development, burdening the environment as little as is practically possible.

    Among other policies, the Bank strives to run a paperless office. The operations of the Bank have been geared to burden the environment as little as possible: the Bank does not send any paper documents to its clients unless they expressly require such an arrangement, and does not print any paper regulatory reports unless the regulatory authorities specifically require so. Employees are guided by a policy to print out only what is essential and process everything on screen only, and all recyclable paper waste and similar material is striven to be recycled.

    Given its online-only operations, the Bank does not have any need to run physical branch offices that consume energy and other resources. The Bank also aims at minimizing the use of unnecessary electric appliances and lighting on its premises – Nemea’s headquarters are designed to make maximum use of daylight and minimal artificial lighting.

    Many of Nemea Bank’s meetings with internal and external collaborators are held online, leveraging advanced communications technologies and collaboration tools, thus decreasing the need for travel and pollution, reducing the Bank’s carbon footprint significantly.

Money Protection

  • How is Nemea Bank regulated and supervised?

  • Is the location of Nemea Bank safe? Why?

    Malta is a member of the European Union with a very strong and acclaimed financial services hub. As an EU Member State, Malta has a well-established democratic system of politics supported by strong judicial and public administrative systems.

    Malta’s financial and economic environment has consistently ranked among the top EU Member States on all fronts. Malta closed 2015 with a GDP growth rate of 6.4%, a budget deficit of 1.5% and the fourth lowest unemployment rate in the EU (5.4%).

    Malta’s domestic banks are renowned for being highly capitalized, profitable and liquid. Malta’s two largest domestic banks received a clean bill of health by the European Central Bank in late 2014 following rigorous year-long tests.

  • Will my deposits be protected and how?

    Nemea Bank is subject to the same strict regulation as all other EU banks and is a member of the Depositor Protection Scheme (Malta). This means that deposits up to €100,000 per client are protected by the Depositor Compensation Scheme. This guarantee is based on the EU Directive 94/19 on deposit-guarantee schemes.

  • What is the Depositor Compensation Scheme?

    The Depositor Compensation Scheme is a rescue fund for depositors of failed banks which are licensed by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). The compensation will be paid if a bank is unable to meet its obligations towards depositors or has otherwise suspended payments. The Scheme is based on the EU Directive 94/19 on deposit-guarantee schemes. 

    As an EU-regulated bank, Nemea Bank is a full member of the Maltese Depositor Compensation Scheme. This means that deposits up to €100,000 per client are protected by the Depositor Compensation Scheme, subject to meeting the conditions of the Depositor Compensation Scheme Regulations, 2015 (Chap. 371.09 of the Laws of Malta).

  • What will happen to my Nemea accounts if I pass away?

    In the unfortunate circumstance that one of the Bank’s clients passes away, the Bank expects to be informed immediately. In such cases, the Bank will immediately block access to all the client’s bank accounts, including personal accounts held jointly with other persons. The Bank will expect to receive formal notification via a probate, normally through the testamentary executioner of the client’s will, before distributing ownership of the client’s accounts in accordance with the client’s wishes.

  • Is Nemea Bank subjected to any form of rating by any recognized credit rating agencies such as Moody’s, Fitch or Standard & Poor’s?

    As a privately held institution, Nemea Bank does not have any rating given by any credit rating agency. It should be noted that Nemea Bank is fully licensed and supervised as an EU credit institution by the Malta Financial Services Authority and is a member of the Maltese Depositor Compensation Scheme.

  • Who are the auditors of Nemea Bank?

    The auditors of Nemea Bank are Deloitte, one of the “Big Four” global audit firms.

    Deloitte is a global leader in the provision of audit, consulting, financial advisory, tax and risk management services and consultancy, including 70% of the Fortune 500 companies. It has more than 210,000 professionals at member firms in more than 150 countries and territories.

Security

  • How does Nemea Bank identify its clients and verify their identity?

    Nemea Bank pays special attention to identifying its clients and verifying their identity, both when they become clients and whenever they subscribe to the products and services of the Bank. The Bank obtains information about the identification documents and documents verifying the domicile of each client, and requires each client to transfer funds from another bank account in their name upon opening the account.

    Upon accessing the Bank’s services, the clients are authenticated, and access is authorized using a 3D secure online authentication system.

    In client identification and identity verification, the Bank observes the EU Anti-Money Laundering regulations.

  • What measures have you taken to ensure my online bank account will be secure and won’t be accessed by anyone but me?

    Access to your online banking platform is protected by a strong customer authentication method known as two factor authentication, which means that logging in requires two important factors:

    1. Inputting the client’s username and password in the Bank’s login page; and
    2. Authenticating your access through a separate authentication mobile app called ModirumID, which requires that the client inputs a PIN number that is generated by the client and that is not known to anyone, not even the Bank.

    Through this authentication method, the two factors outlined above are completely independent from each other, meaning that if someone gains access to one of the two factors, the other will still be completely protected. This means that your Nemea accounts are protected using a method that is widely recognised as an industry best practice.

  • Why do I need an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet device to access my online banking platform?

    An Android or iOS smartphone or tablet device is an essential component for logging into your online bank account. When you become a Nemea client, you will be asked to download a free authentication app called ModirumID. This app authenticates the user and authorises the online access as part of the login process.

    This means you will never have to carry a physical PIN generation device and can bank with greater security and convenience, at the click of a button. Since your account access is authorised by a mobile app, you will need an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet device to access your bank account.

  • Why do you use ModirumID rather than other types of authentication software or devices?

    Nemea Bank uses ModirumID as its authentication software of choice because it offers a number of security features that are more advanced and appropriate for an online banking platform. The most important of these is that ModirumID always asks the client to input their PIN before authenticating access to their account or providing them with a one time password. In doing so, it adds another tier of security to the account login without overcomplicating the process. Furthermore, by requesting a PIN, ModirumID doesn’t simply rely on the client’s mobile security settings (e.g. a client might configure their mobile not to include touch, pattern or PIN security for access). Another feature which attracted the Bank to use ModirumID is that it offers push notification, which enhances the user experience.

    Ultimately, what is most important is the security of Nemea clients’ web banking platform. To this end, it is important to note that ModirumID is certified for 3D-Secure protocol specifications by American Express SafeKey, Discover ProtectBuy, MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa.

  • How does Nemea Bank manage its information security risks to prevent fraud and phishing?

    The Bank’s systems platform has been specifically designed to manage all information security risks as key threats to the Bank’s security. The mechanisms in place to verify clients’ identities are modern and robust, and are subject to continuous development to stay ahead of threats, and the system is continuously tested against intrusion attempts through various penetration tests and ongoing efforts. The systems are protected both by hardware and software firewalls, and other structural and programmatic measures to guarantee their integrity and security.

    Instructions on how to safeguard access credentials and on how the Bank communicates with clients are given in client mails and through the website.

Accounts

Current Account

  • How do I log into my new account?

    Please visit personal.nemeabank.com/how-to and follow our step-by-step guide on how to log into your Nemea online bank account as a new client.

    Nemea Bank does not utilize any traditional hardware tokens or code cards to log into client bank accounts but an advanced 3D user authentication method through a mobile application called ModirumID. You will need to download and install this mobile application for free via the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).

  • How can I open a new current account?

    To open a new current account, visit our current account registration page at www.nemeabank.com/personal/current-account/new, fill out the account registration form and follow the instructions. The process is fast, simple and straightforward.

    Once you submit your registration form, you will be required to transfer a nominal amount to your new Nemea account from another bank account in your own name. Transferring an amount of money – we recommend a transfer of as little as €50 – is an essential component of the registration process and forms part of standard due diligence procedures. These funds are completely yours and will be transferred to your new bank account in their entirety. Once you make your nominal transfer, Nemea Bank will complete due diligence procedures, a process that normally takes two business days to complete.

    Following the due diligence process, and subject to the Bank having received all required documentation, your new Nemea account will be activated and made available for your free use.

  • What do I need to open a new current account?

    To open a new current account, you must be in possession of an email address, an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet device, a copy of your identity document (ID Card or Passport) and an electronic document proving your residency. Once you complete your registration, you must make a nominal transfer – we recommend a transfer of as little as €50 – to your new Nemea account from another bank account held in your own name.

  • Why am I asked to make a money transfer when I open a new account?

    When a new client registers with Nemea Bank, he or she is asked to make a nominal money transfer – we recommend a transfer of as little as €50. This nominal transfer from another bank account held in your own name is an essential component of the client’s due diligence process and forms part of Nemea Bank’s compliance with international anti-money laundering and due diligence compliance procedures. These funds are completely yours and will be transferred to your new bank account in their entirety.

  • Can I open a joint Nemea Current Account?

    Nemea Bank is currently working to expand its services by launching joint current accounts across all 31 countries of the EU/EEA region. Its aim is to launch this new service in the first half of 2016. To keep updated on joint accounts, please subscribe to our mailing list by sending an email to info@nemeabank.com or join us on Facebook.

  • Why are both owners of a joint current account asked to make a nominal money transfer to their new account?

    When two or more individuals create a joint current account with Nemea Bank, all members of the joint account are asked to make a nominal money transfer – we recommend a transfer of as little as €50. This nominal transfer from another bank account held in each applicant’s own name is an essential component of each client’s due diligence process and forms part of Nemea Bank’s compliance with international anti-money laundering and due diligence compliance procedures. Since each new client undergoes separate due diligence procedures, each new client must make a separate money transfer to their new joint current account. No percentage of these funds is taken by Nemea Bank and the full money transfer will be immediately transferred to the client’s new bank account.

  • Do I have to provide information to justify the funds I deposit with Nemea Bank?

    Nemea Bank asks for information on the source of funds and the source of wealth as a fundamental part of the due diligence process.

  • Which currencies are supported by the Nemea current account?

    Nemea Bank currently supports current accounts in EUR, USD, GBP, CAD, AUD, DKK, SEK, PLN and CHF currencies.

  • Does Nemea Bank offer multi-currency personal current accounts?

    No, Nemea Bank does not offer multi-currency accounts.

  • Where can I view and download the terms and conditions of personal current accounts?

    The terms and conditions of personal current accounts can be viewed and saved by visiting the following link: www.nemeabank.com/general-terms-conditions.

  • Does the bank charge any maintenance fees for personal current accounts?

    No, Nemea Bank does not charge any maintenance fees on personal current accounts.

  • I do not file a tax return in my country of residence. Would this impede me from opening a current account with Nemea Bank?

    You are free to open a current account regardless of the manner in which you declare your income in your tax domicile. Nemea Bank does not act as a tax agent and, save in the case of Maltese tax residents who specifically request so, interest earned on any of our accounts is paid in gross. It is therefore the client’s responsibility to seek tax advice as to the declaration of interest earned and any other tax implications with the authorities according to his or her tax domicile and the applicable laws therein.

  • Can I upload a photo of my ID Card or Passport when registering as a client rather than a scanned copy?

    Yes, Nemea Bank accepts good quality photos of an applicant’s ID Card of Passport submitted when filling in the online registration form. Please bear in mind that we require clear and good quality photos of both sides of an ID Card where applicable.

  • What documents can I submit to prove my residency when registering as a client?

    When you register as a Nemea client for the first time, you will be requested to support your application with an electronic bill or statement to prove your place of residency. This bill must not be more than 90 days old. It must also be an electronic bill and not a scanned copy of a printed bill.

    The following documents may be used to prove your residency:

    • A certificate issued by a public authority of your domicile, like your municipality, police or population register
    • Utility bills (electric, gas, wired telephone and cable)

    • ATM or debit or credit card statement or other bank statement or correspondence
    • Current, valid homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy

    • Motor vehicle registration or electronic bill
  • How can I obtain an electronic bill or bank statement for submission when registering as a client?

    Electronic bank statements can be downloaded from your bank’s online banking system depending on your agreement with your bank for the generation of statements, whereas utility bills can normally be downloaded from the utility’s website. 

  • I can’t provide an electronic bill. What else can I do to prove my residency and become a Nemea client?

    If it is absolutely not possible for you to upload an electronic bill when registering as a client, you can send us an original or authorized document directly to our Client Services Unit at the following address:

    Client Services Unit
    Nemea Bank plc
    Level 17, Portomaso Tower
    St. Julians STJ 4011
    Malta

    Once we receive your document as proof of residency, we will attach it to your application internally.

  • How much money should I transfer to activate my new current account?

    To activate your new current account, you must transfer some funds into it; we recommend a nominal starting transfer of €50. This amount must be transferred from another bank account held in your name. You must make your bank transfer within 7 days to activate your account. If you do not affect your transfer within 7 days, you will have to start your application process from scratch.

  • Why am I not managing to download ModirumID on my Windows phone?

    Unfortunately, ModirumID is presently only available for download on Android or iOS smartphone or tablet devices. Therefore, without an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet device, you will not be able to access your online banking platform. This is a limitation which Nemea Bank hopes Modirum will address in the near future so that even Windows phones will be supported and able to download the free authentication app ModirumID.

  • I am not managing to log into my account. What should I do?

    If you are not managing to log into your account because you have forgotten your password, please contact a Nemea client advisor using one of the communication channels in the following link: www.nemeabank.com/support/contact-us.

    If you are not managing to log into your account and are receiving an error message stating “OTP not valid”, you could be facing one of the following four issues:

    1. You have entered your PIN number incorrectly: when a PIN number is entered incorrectly, ModirumID still generates an OTP, however that OTP will not be valid. ModirumID behaves in this way to make it harder for persons other than yourself to guess your PIN number.
    2. Your smartphone or tablet’s time setting is not set up correctly: ModirumID generates OTPs based on the current time which requires your device’s date, time and time zone to be set correctly. In certain instances, your device’s time settings might not be set correctly, particularly in periods immediately following Daylight Saving Time changes. In these cases, switch the time setting on your phone to “Automatic” or “Set Automatically”, and try undertaking the process again.
    3. The whole process has taken you more than 10 minutes to complete: the ModirumID OTP expires after 10 minutes, meaning that if you have not used the OTP within ten minutes, your OTP will not longer be considered valid.
    4. You are trying to reuse an OTP: an OTP can only be used once.

    If your problem persists, please contact a Nemea client advisor using one of the communication channels in the following link: www.nemeabank.com/support/contact-us.

  • Why am I getting this message: “Error Message: OTP not valid” whenever I try to log into my account?

    There are a number of reasons why you might receive an error message stating that your OTP is not valid. Here are the four most common reasons:

    • You have entered your PIN number incorrectly: when a PIN number is entered incorrectly, ModirumID still generates an OTP, however that OTP will not be valid. ModirumID behaves in this way to make it harder for persons other than yourself to guess your PIN number.
