Memento has made an agreement with a US based Marygold and Co. to build a new banking solution. The new solution is aimed at young professionals in the San Francisco area that live by the FIRE lifestyle ( Financial Independent Retire Early) – a growing trend around the world, a lifestyle where people live sustainably and take control of their financial health.
“Marygold & Co. is launching a state-of-the-art digital banking service in the United States coming summer of 2020. It was critical to find an experienced and flexible development partner to help us architect a platform that embraces an exciting mix of 3rd party fintech integrations. We selected Memento Payments as our partner because of their successful experience with Kass in the Icelandic market and their flexibility working with our processing, fintech and network bank partners in the US. Marygold & Co. has an aggressive roadmap to bring modern payments and money management tools to the US market and is secure in our partnership with Memento Payments to support our vision and scale with us.” Chad Butler, President Marygold & Co.
The rise of fintechs and challenger banks is changing the landscape in the US just like it has in Europe for recent years. US based, Chime and Simple, have made a strong entrance to market, so have Revolut, Monzo, N26 and others originated from Europe. Now Marygold & Co is entering the market with strong value proposition, for instance the ability to receive paychecks two days early, instantly sending money to anyone in the US with a phonenumber or email address, as well as user friendly savings methods and bill splitting with friends.
“The appetite for heavy investments when launching a new financial service is dropping and that’s where the Memento platform comes in. Banks and other financial services are successfully partnering with Platform-as-a-Service providers like Memento to minimize technical investment before projects are launched and, at the same time, increasing the probability of a fast and successful launch.The Marygold and Co service is a mixture of some of the strongest tech providers in the fintech space and we are excited to assemble them together into a customer-facing solution for the Marygold & Co’s customers. We look forward to working with all our new partners on this adventure, getting to know the US market and to help move the world of banking toward the new era of digitalization that the consumers are asking for.” Arnar Jónson, CEO of Memento Payments.
