Marqeta (NASDAQ: MQ), the global modern card issuing platform that enables embedded finance solutions for the world’s innovators, today announced a new customer, Swiss4, providing real-time and personalised digital payment services for their customers.

This is part of Swiss4’s recently launched application that combines financial services and high-end lifestyle management, the first of its kind in Switzerland.

With Marqeta’s platform, Swiss4 can swiftly design and introduce novel payment features, continually enhancing the end user experience. With Marqeta, Swiss4 reinforces its commitment to providing state-of-the-art digital financial solutions, ensuring a convenient, secure, and efficient transaction experience for its customers.

A recent survey found that 52% of 25-34-year-olds said using financial products and services from their favorite brands was more convenient than using a conventional bank. Another 51% of respondents said brands offer products more tailored to their needs than traditional institutions do, while 50% say their loyalty to brands is thanks to the financial benefits and incentives they offer, showing the growing opportunity for non-traditional finance service offerings to grow their consumer base.

Swiss4 was founded in 2020 and is one of the first companies in Switzerland to obtain its fintech licence from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). Swiss4 has created a financial services application, now available across Switzerland, combining a multicurrency account, payment and foreign exchange facilities, personalised lifestyle management services for organising leisure activities - travel, hospitality, gastronomy, access to prestigious cultural and sports events, recommendations for experiences, and private events for its members.

“We sought out a partner that was experienced not only in the Swiss market, but also across Europe, and could support our future expansion plans when the time comes,” said Zhina Asmaei, co-founder and CEO of Swiss4. “Marqeta is a trusted solution that can meet our requirements for a flexible, scalable and personalized offering with the latest capabilities that our customers are seeking.”

“With continued demand for personalised payment experiences, Marqeta has the scale, breadth and experience to serve innovative customers like Swiss4 as they reimagine financial services for the luxury market,” said Marcin Glogowski, SVP and Managing Director, Europe, and UK CEO at Marqeta. “We’re proud to continue our momentum in Europe and work closely with our customers to deliver payments offerings that help grow their customer base and create lasting customer engagement.”
