Visa has announced the expansion of Visa FinTech Partner Connect, a program designed to help financial institutions connect with a vetted and curated set of technology providers quickly.
The FinTech Partner Connect by y streamlining the discovery process can help Visa’s issuing partners create digital-first experiences without the cost and complexity of building the back-end technology in-house. The program was initially launched in Europe, and is now available to clients in the U.S and in markets across Asia Pacific, Central Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
