Zorrz partners Swedish FinTech Sileon for new credit products
By Gloria Methri
UK FinTech Zorrz Finance and Swedish FinTech Sileon, specialised in card-based Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) functionality, partnered to enable more consumers to access BNPL solutions.
Zorrz has developed an artificial intelligence-powered tool called MoneyInsight360, which generates a complete, unified view of a person’s credit history. It is also soon to launch the BlueAccess Card, its flagship credit card designed specifically for immigrants, individuals with past credit challenges, and students.
By creating its new Financial Health Score – an alternative to the credit scores given by the main credit reference agencies – as well as developing its own FinTech products, London-based startup Zorrz seeks to democratise access to credit.
The partnership will integrate Sileon’s BNPL SaaS solution onto Zorrz’s BlueAccess Card. The extra functionality will provide consumers with more financial flexibility if they wish to split payments for purchase when using their BlueAccess Card.
Priyesh Mistry, Director of Zorrz, said, “We are excited to team up with Sileon and add BNPL functionality to our products. Their powerful SaaS technology gives us the ability to meet customers’ needs for more payment choice. This partnership aligns with our mission to democratise access to credit through AI and tech.”
“The cost-of-living crisis has brought people’s financial challenges into sharper focus, and access to credit is a major issue for millions of people. Tech undoubtedly holds the key to solving such issues – it will provide better ways to assess someone’s creditworthiness while reducing the barriers people face in trying to access financial products and accounts. Zorrz is proud to be driving positive change in this space.”
David Larsson, CEO of Sileon, added, “We are thrilled that Zorrz has chosen our BNPL SaaS Platform to meet the growing appetite for instalment payments in the UK. This represents an exciting step forward as we continue expanding globally.”
The partnership between Sileon and Zorrz is set to launch in Q4 2023, which is when the first customers will begin using Zorrz’s BlueAccess Card.
