Customers across Louisiana now have access to digital banking services through ANDI, Fidelity’s new digital bank

AUSTIN, TX (March 19, 2024)— Helix by Q2 (NYSE: QTWO), an award-winning, cloud-native core purpose-built for embedded finance, today announced that Fidelity Bank, a Louisiana-based bank founded in 1908, has launched a new digital bank, powered by Helix. ANDI, a division of Fidelity Bank, is a fully digital bank established to help Fidelity Bank reach customers across Louisiana who are not near a branch and offers deposit, lending and financial wellness solutions.

ANDI, which stands for “A New Day In Banking,” provides debit accounts, savings accounts, credit cards and personal unsecured loans. ANDI also provides financial wellness solutions with full account aggregation, wish list management, and rewards and benefits programs. Helix’s lightweight cloud-based core enables ANDI to deliver a seamless, simple banking experience.

“Fidelity Bank established ANDI to meet the evolving needs and preferences of customers in today’s digital age,” said Chris Ferris, President & CEO at Fidelity Bank. “Additionally, with many communities experiencing bank consolidations and closures, ANDI aims to fill the void and provide access to digital banking services. Our goal is to empower customers to bank anytime, anywhere, and simplify their financial lives.”

Established in 1908, Fidelity Bank set out to serve those in Louisiana by remaining client focused, community minded, financially stable and operationally sound. As the years progressed, Fidelity Bank looked for new ways to serve its customers. Understanding that many customers may want to bank digitally, Fidelity created its digital division, ANDI, to help expand into new markets, reach new customers, especially students and the underserved, and provide expanded ways to help their customers save, grow deposits, and increase their financial literacy.

“We’re excited to partner with Fidelity Bank to bring their vision of ANDI to life and make financial services more accessible to college students and underserved communities across Louisiana,” said Ahon Sarkar, general manager of Helix by Q2. “With Helix’s lightweight cloud-based core, financial institutions no longer need to rip and replace their legacy core systems to deliver personalized digital products. We’re looking forward to our continued partnership with Fidelity Bank as they serve their customers with innovative products.”

“Q2 has been a partner of Fidelity Bank for several years and we’ve watched their growth in digital banking for a long time,” said Randy Baker, COO at Fidelity Bank. “Collaborating with Helix by Q2, we are navigating the frontier of financial technology, where innovation is redefining the banking experience and driving a future of bank core customization and customer satisfaction."
