Swadesh is a product of the experiences of our founding team, most of whom moved to the United States for their education or career. The United States is a “nation of immigrants” and deeply aspirational, yet banking and financial institutions in the United States do not reflect those ideals.
Swadesh was built to bridge the gap between premium US banking and Indian immigrants & non-US citizens. We’re an underserved group that faces real barriers to financial inclusion that can torpedo countless American Dreams.
Swadesh isn’t just a bank. We’re dreamers-in-arms.
We’re building a network of desi students and professionals to encourage your ambitions. We’re launching products for every step of your journey— from bright-eyed student to veteran green card holder. We’re disrupting finance to provide immigrants a seat at the influential, multicultural table that is the USA.
Don’t go with a bank that brings up your lack of financial history— go with a bank that helps you make history.
We're building the services we wished existed when we emigrated. If you've faced similar problems and wondered who's solving them - we're here, and we're looking for you.
