Engine provides a generational-leap forward for digital banking technology in terms of both customer and employee experiences. Combining our deep expertise with this cutting-edge technology is an exciting shift in the way that we solve complex problems for our clients.”

By expanding our existing capability to include Engine, we are continuing to be at the forefront of the latest digital banking technology innovation.”

Engine by Starling chief executive officer, Sam Everington, concluded: “Partnering with PwC, a leader in professional services, will be crucial in helping to deliver Engine, our cutting-edge digital banking platform, to customers around the world.
