By Leandra Monteiro
Canadian FinTech Buckzy Payments Inc, a global real-time cross-border payments network, recently announced it is expanding operations in Europe with the opening of a new office this summer in Amsterdam, the Netherland.
Buckzy is also pursuing an EMI license that will enable any participant of the Buckzy Payment Network globally to leverage virtual account services and real-time payments across the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA), which covers 36 countries and territories in Europe – the 27 EU member states plus the UK, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino, Andorra and the Vatican City State.
Commenting on the news, Buckzy President and CEO, Abdul Naushad said, “We’re excited to expand Buckzy’s presence and operations in Europe with our new office in Amsterdam, one of the world’s oldest and most respected banking and finance hubs. The new office is a clear statement of our commitment to establish Buckzy as the leading global payments network that banks, financial institutions, neobanks and fintech start-ups across the globe connect to for their real-time cross-border transactions needs.
Naushad continued, “Europe is a mature, technologically advanced market that is also a hotbed of fintech innovation thanks to its adoption of open API technology, which has opened up the financial sector and created opportunities for innovative new companies to provide new products and services. More and more of our customers around the world want to send and receive real-time payments to and from Europe, and we are enabling them to do so.”
Buckzy will be in Amsterdam next week at Money 20/20 Europe, where it will underline the growing value and strategic importance of international real-time cross-border transactions, as banks and other financial service providers, payment companies, and FinTechs converge on the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre for three days of keynote speeches, industry debate, and networking.
Speaking ahead of the conference, Buckzy, Chief Operating Officer, Carlos Garcia said, “Money 20/20 events are where the innovators of the financial world come to do business, share ideas, and discuss the latest and emerging trends that are shaping and driving the sector. It’s a valuable opportunity for Buckzy to showcase our market-leading real-time cross-border payment network and its features to new and existing customers, prospects, and potential strategic partners.”
