Wedge Financial, Inc., a FinTech company that brings the power of the markets and programmable payments to everyday spending, is partnering with Visa to launch a debit card connected to the FinTech’s app, accelerating its mission to revolutionise consumer spending.
Wedge is an innovative FinTech solution that allows users to spend from multiple fiat and asset accounts with a single debit card. It gives users the flexibility to make everyday purchases on their Wedge debit card utilizing the upside from stocks, cryptocurrencies, ETFs and cash, allowing users to take advantage of market movements.
With Wedge, users can unlock an intuitive new way to spend from balances held at separate banks and financial platforms. The company is positioned to disrupt the payments space with its ability to simplify a user’s wallet while providing more upside potential than many conventional credit and debit offerings.
“Partnering with Visa will expand our reach and bring Wedge’s innovative technology to more customers worldwide,” said Billy Roberts, Wedge, CEO. “Visa is one of the most trusted and respected names in the payments business, and Wedge users will benefit immensely from Visa’s decades of experience and industry-leading innovation, security, and network access. We are extremely excited to work with Visa to develop an innovative, user-focused payments product.”
The new debit card is issued through Wedge’s program manager in conjunction with a bank partner, pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc.
