WE HAVE A DREAM
GIVE CONSUMERS THE FREEDOM TO MOVE,
WHEREVER THEY WANT,
WHENEVER THEY WANT
We want to tell you two stories.
Giacomo is 30 years old and he's a freelancer. He lives in Milan but while travelling for work, one day met Francis, a French girl which lives in Paris. He felt in love with her and decided to move in France, where he will restart his activity as freelancer.
Riccardo is 23 years old and decided to move to Germany to do a three years master. Riccardo's family hasn't got all the necessary money to sustain master fees, so Riccardo has to make little chores to help his father to finance the studies.
TWO DIFFERENT STORIES, ONLY ONE NEED
What there is in common between these two histories? Apparently nothing but under these stories there is a common need. The need to move in another country and change bank without any impediment, additive costs and without changing the IBAN account number.
These are only two examples of very common cases of common stories of many consumers.
IBANP is pursuing an objective: guarantee to all citizens to live and work in an unic nation. This nation is called Europe.
IBAN Portability Project has the commitment of spread the importance of account number portability and to sensibilize all the European citizens about this theme.
The account number portability will not only improve the consumers banking experience, but will also be the first step to an united Europe.
