BPC, a payment services firm, announced that Tinkoff had selected its SaaS Cloud payment services to expand in the Philippines. The project is termed to be an extension of an existing partnership and is a testimony to BPC's proven technical expertise in the digital banking and payments landscape.

BPC's next-generation payment processing company Radar Payments will head and manage the end-to-end payment experience for Tinkoff customers in the Philippines as per the new agreement. The business extension includes physical and virtual card production, debit and credit card insurance and management, SmartVista ACS for 3DS secure services, and fraud prevention.

Furthermore, BPC will also support Tinkoff in cloud SaaS payment adoption in the Philippines. The support would provide greater flexibility in accessing banking services, cost savings, and security. Banks are stepping into novel payment processors aiming to focus on client relationships. For example, neobanks and fintechs bring new offerings to new markets faster than ever. They are doing it by using ready-to-connect payment rails around various geographies.

The Philippines is recorded as one of the fastest-growing markets in South East Asia. As a result, the Central Bank has been granting new banking licenses to improve financial accessibility and foster healthy competition.

About the news, George Chesakov, International Expansion Lead at Tinkoff, commented, "Tinkoff is thrilled about entering the Philippines market. We believe our technology and experience will help us build the right products, boosting financial inclusion in the country. With BPC's payment processing business, we have a partner with whom we have a long-standing relationship and align with our SaaS Cloud vision. Moreover, we value BPC's strong local knowledge of the Philippines' banking sector, which should help us start operating in this market faster."

We could not be any prouder to continue our journey serving Tinkoff and its future customers in Asia. Success depends on the speed of deployment of new services in the digital banking industry, especially in the Philippines market, which will welcome several new market players in 2022."

Fintainium | October 23, 2021

Fintainium Inc, announced today the intent to launch a Joint Venture with Aspire Fund Management, a Trinidad & Tobago based Private Equity and Financial Advisory company that bridges the gap between investors and next-generation innovative, transformative businesses. The joint venture will redefine Fintech in a large part of the region. Fintainium's Chief Executive Officer, Richard Jackman remarked, "For the last several years we have been working closely with Aspire. It has been the vision of both companies to build to this point; we have both wanted to create a joint venture that would disrupt some large markets and create value for all involved." Fintainium, an SME workflow automation supply chain finance and fintech payments company, facilitates the relationship between financial institutions, businesses, and other technology companies by combining world-class domestic and international money movement products with workflow, accounting, and reconciliation automation. As a result, Fintainium enhances back-office operations for institutions and streamlines working capital management for end-users. Kerwyn Valley, Aspire's Managing Director, remarked, "We are excited about the possibilities that a joint venture between our two companies can create. The combination of Fintainium's technology and the brand name of Aspire Fund Management will create a powerful growth vehicle for CARICOM and LATAM. Our region has been seeking solutions like these to make doing business easier, lower the working capital costs and automate repetitive processes. Our solutions and technology will facilitate trade finance and other SME-focused lending opportunities." The new joint venture, when formed, will also bring North American expertise working with banks and credit unions to the region. Fintainium has been working with banks and credit unions in the United States and Canada for the past three years. As a result, some of the exciting features have been developed with the deep expertise curated by working with financial institutions. There is a great unmet need in this region to automate back-end processes, centralize data and create an easy to use, streamlined solution to underwrite and fund loans with a very low back office burden. Working capital Is critical to any business's success, but the SME market has specific needs due to their size. This joint venture, when formed, is going to enable companies to operate better than they ever have before and free them up to execute on their core business by providing working capital more efficiently."
