PortX & Plaid team to boost FinTech innovation and data connectivity
By Delisha Fernandes
PortX, a financial infrastructure and integration technology, has partnered with Plaid, the data network powering the digital financial ecosystem.
This collaboration combines the power of PortX’s digital core banking integration experience with Plaid’s industry-leading capabilities for connecting data between applications and bank accounts.
“Digital finance is here to stay, in fact, 85% of consumers say they have benefited from using technology to manage their finances. It’s imperative that financial institutions embrace technology the same way their customers have – to maintain account primacy and prepare for the codification of open banking in the US,” said Tamara Romanek, Head of Partnerships at Plaid. “Partners like PortX transform banking infrastructure for financial institutions, aiding them in digital transformation and enabling rapid innovation. Together we are enhancing the digital infrastructure and optionality for financial institutions and their customers.”
The alliance is set to transform the FinTech sector, leveraging the strengths of both companies to revolutionize data harnessing by financial institutions. This partnership aims to significantly enhance data sharing capabilities, ensuring secure, efficient, and comprehensive financial data management for PortX’s clients, leading to more personalized services and deeper financial insights.
“Our partnership with Plaid is the type of innovative collaboration that can propel the financial services industry into a new era of digital transformation and customer-centric solutions,“ said David Wexler, CEO of PortX. “This partnership represents a significant stride towards a future where financial management is more accessible, efficient, and aligned with the evolving needs of both FIs and their customers.”
The partnership expands the horizons of API capabilities in financial services significantly. It sets the stage for more active participation in open banking initiatives, where financial data is shared securely through APIs. PortX’s command over API orchestration and financial services integration, alongside Plaid’s storied expertise in secure data connectivity and Core Exchange, its FDX-aligned API, empowers financial institutions to be at the forefront of the open banking revolution. This capability is critical for offering advanced and personalized digital banking and embedded banking services.
