Our Story

The Name

Our name is inspired by the Latin word for “mint”.

  • The universally loved herb “mint” connotes freshness, new beginnings and growth. Isn’t that what life’s all about? Hope. Beginnings. Growth.
  • “Mint” also connotes money. It’s the place where money is manufactured (by the central banks).

The two meanings come together to define Menthum’s “A Fresh Way to Money”.

The Brand

Rather than being a noun (denoting a thing), we see “money” as a verb (denoting an action). So, take “… to Money” in our motto as you take “…to work”, “… to grow”, “… to dream”.

We believe there’s more to life than money. Life’s about hoping, dreaming, working (to achieve our dreams), and achieving (our dreams). It’s a continuous cycle of growth and building a better tomorrow.

Money indeed plays a key role in life, adding more to life. More joy, more success, more excitement… in short more life, for us and for those we care for. In the same spirit, Menthum is devised to add more to your life. More security, more convenience, more growth.

We wish Menthum to stand for all that makes life beautiful: dreams, hopes, hard work, ambition, success ….

The Beginning

The idea of Menthum was inspired by us ourselves feeling the need for a better way to money. Having worked in banking & finance for a considerable time, we realized that there are ways to make our money work harder for us. Afterall, we work hard to add more happiness, more purpose, more money…, our money should work harder for us too.

Menthum is started and managed by people like you. Professionals who believe in dreaming and working hard to achieve the dreams. To live a full life. Life that is about growth and security.

Thanks for your time and interest. Here’s Menthum for you. A Fresh Way to Money.
