Marqeta and Swissquote partner on digital banking
We’re excited to announce our partnership with Swissquote, a leading provider of online financial services who is offering a new app-based card program that gives users control over a range of financial activities in a single digital space.
Based in Switzerland, Swissquote has a worldwide presence with additional offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malta, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom. The company was founded in 1996 and has a long history of financial innovation. One of the first trading specialists to offer real-time quotes, they were an early adopter of AI and machine learning in financial services. They launched a robo-advisor in 2021 and developed it further to include cryptocurrencies trading in 2017.
Our partnership with Swissquote will help power an all-in-one app that connects banking and trading via a virtual card. Swissquote will use our open APIs to allow users to perform a wide range of money management and trading functions. Security capabilities include a card freeze, pin reveal, and pin change.
“Swissquote prides itself on challenging the status quo and seeking out innovative technology to bring to our clients,” said Jan De Schepper, Swissquote chief sales and marketing officer. “With Marqeta, we can offer an app that seamlessly links banking and investing — making it easier for our clients to access financial services and take control of their financial lives.”
We’re proud to partner with a financial pioneer like Swissquote and are excited to help Swissquote clients to have more streamlined access to their accounts.
