Iceland, the land of ice and fire. A Nordic country in Europe known for its beautiful nature, northern lights, vikings, volcano’s and last but not least being the birth place of global digital banking solutions provider Meniga.

Meniga was founded out of the 2008 financial crisis, known for hitting Iceland hard, as a response to the national need for financial help.
