As the pioneering digital bank in Vietnam, Covid propelled Timo to reposition themselves as social banking that focuses on connecting community & sustainable growth. As a result, in recent times, Timo has shown a strong commitment to every community they associate with, to always be an understanding friend, a long-term partner that could create emotional experiences in a way no bank has ever tapped into.
Mr. Jonas Eichhorst, Director and CFO of Timo Digital Bank shared: “Sports in general and basketball, in particular, are great people connectors. As the pioneering social bank and enabler of sustainable growth, we want people to stay on top of their financial needs, and help them feel connected, whether through features like payment requests or by bringing people together to learn more about managing their finances and how to live responsibly – especially for the younger generation. Our growth direction for Timo is deeply rooted in our commitment to a prosperous and sustainable community in the near future.”
All the success and excitement of the SEA Games 31 with Vietnam’s Men & Women Basketball team in the heat of Thanh Tri Stadium had brought Timo to consider the basketball community as our next challenge and build up to join Vietnamese basketball history.
The story of “Defying the odds, Fuel your passion, Love the game you play”
Truong Twins – #11 Kayleigh Truong Thao My and #14 Kaylynne Truong Thao Vy are Vietnamese American twin sisters currently located in the United States. These two talented girls are among the minority of Asian American players to receive sports scholarships from Gonzaga University and now play for the team at NCAA Women.
During SEA Games 31, hosted by Vietnam, Truong Twins was a part of the women’s team and supported “making history” for the country’s basketball with a silver medal for the 3×3 games. From that moment, Thao My and Thao Vy have become idols that inspire young sports lovers, spreading the love for the orange ball and becoming fundamentals for the growth of national women’s basketball.
In the previous week, Truong Twins was proudly entitled to the shortlist of the 18 most influential names in US college basketball to become the Breaking Limits campaign ambassadors. Their mission is to continue spreading the message “Breaking Limits” and fuel young athletes to pursue their dreams and passions.
Truong Twins Thao My – Thao Vy shared: “I love basketball because it is a universal sport. It gives us the chance to meet different people from different backgrounds. However, on our journeys, we also have to deal with adversity. So many people doubted us and said we didn’t belong and could fit in. But we wouldn’t be here, wouldn’t be the person or player we are today, without those obstacles.
We would like to see continued support from the fans. These past SEA Games show how much dedication these fans have. They showed up to the game early and supported both men and women, especially on the women’s side. We saw a huge fan base, so it just has the fan support to help us stay motivated. Moreover, we want to witness Vietnam compete at the highest level possible with FIBA 3×3 and 5×5 in the future.
We are excited to join Timo Digital Bank on this inspiring journey and have the chance to share the story of “Defying the odds, fuel your passion, love the game you play”. We look forward to seeing Vietnam’s basketball community grow and receive more attention. Thus we, the young generation, will continuously pursue the innovative, positive lifestyle to follow what they desire til success, then help create a more incredible Vietnam.”
Ms. Thu Tran – Vice President of PR & Communications, Timo Digital Bank said: “We are incredibly excited to witness that Truong Twins #11 Kayleigh Truong Thao My and #14 Kaylynne Truong Thao Vy are talented young athletes that reflect Timo’s 4 colour brand story and echo our core values in its truest form. Extending beyond just an “icon,” Truong Twins inspire the young Vietnamese generation to move towards a positive life, follow their dreams and play a critical role in supporting the upliftment of the Vietnamese women’s basketball scene. Timo is extremely proud to be a companion in this inspiring story!”
