Bueno is owned by Bueno Group AS, a Norwegian fintech company with a European focus. We embrace fintech to create new and unique business models, solving specific pain points and delivering cost savings to our customers.
Our founders, management and board consist of people with extensive experience from banking, technology and business management. With over 100 years of combined business knowledge, we believe Bueno can become one of Europe’s leading fintech companies.
We will shortly launch Bueno Stay, our short-term rental platform, offering trusted holiday rentals in partnership with real estate agents in popular tourist destinations. Unfortunately, there have been many scams where people paid for short term rentals that did not exist. To combat this, Bueno will offer a trusted payment platform for rentals, beneficial for both guests and owners.
Bueno will also launch its own insurance brand. After banking, insurance is probably the second largest pain point in Spain. Our goal is to simplify the process of both buying and cancelling insurance products. We will offer products that give you the coverage you require simply and transparently. We know all too well from personal experience that insurance in Spain can be challenging.
We offer accounts to EU/EEA and UK residents. We add a lot of value to customers owning or renting a property in Spain, or who own a property in another country. Even without a property you can open an account and we are confident you’ll love our simplicity, service and low cost. We expect to launch our property features in France and Portugal in 2022.
We need to verify your identity to meet financial regulations. This is done by submitting a copy of your passport or national ID card where this is approved as financial identification. You will take a picture of your ID with your phone or web camera during our onboarding process.
Normally, a personal account can be opened in as little as 5 minutes. In some cases, it might take a little longer to verify your data. Business accounts will take 1-2 days to open (not launched yet).
No, our account opening process is managed online. There is no need to travel or to leave your home to become a Bueno customer. Everything can be done online or via your Bueno app.
