Treezor joins the Mastercard Fintech Express programme
16 July 2020
Paris, July 16th, 2020 – Treezor becomes a privileged partner of the Fintech Express programme announced by Mastercard in June 2020. The goal of both partners? Accelerate the launch of European fintechs and then their international development, by facilitating their integration with innovative players in the world of payment such as Treezor – a Mastercard Principal Member.
Treezor, France’s leading Banking-as-a-Service platform, wishes to strengthen its ties with its historical partner and pursue its pan-European expansion strategy. Indeed, following France, Treezor is entering new markets: Benelux, Italy, Spain, and Germany. Thus, following the acquisition by Societe Generale Group and following a year of consolidation of its teams and capabilities, Treezor continues to grow and support the European fintech ecosystem with its 100% API-based platform covering the entire payment chain.
The Mastercard fintech express program consists of three key factors that Treezor addresses today:
1. Access: Treezor is currently a Mastercard Principal member & is connected to a wide variety of innovative Mastercard solutions. This allows Treezor to provide access to fintechs, start-ups & corporates to Mastercard technology.
2. Build: Mastercard & Treezor are together building the foundations of tomorrows payments needs.
3. Connect: The above two elements combined allow Treezor to be a quick connect partner having the infrastructure in place to ‘plug & play’ Mastercard technology close to instantly.
“We have always had an excellent relationship with Mastercard, a company with which we share the same innovative DNA and it is natural for us to participate in the Mastercard Fintech Express programme. This will make the integration of fintechs with Treezor’s technology even faster, allowing them to cover the entire payment chain, while giving them access to Mastercard’s innovations.” – Eric Lassus – Co-founder and CEO of Treezor
With the Mastercard Fintech Express programme, Treezor will continue to be the reference player in BaaS in France and Europe with the support of Mastercard, particularly in the Build branch under the status of Express Partner. This will enable unique technological alliances to be forged, as start-ups seeking collaboration with Mastercard will be able to do so directly via Treezor for an optimal and rapid integration.
“Treezor is the leading player in France in Bank as a Service operating the most innovative Neo-banking programs on this market. It was only natural to see them join the Mastercard Fintech Express program to continue to support their rapid growth in France and accelerate their development in Europe.” – Solveig Hatton, Managing Director of Mastercard France
Both partners plan to continue working on new projects and products together to actively support innovation in payments in Europe.
