I2C Inc., a global leader in digital payments and banking technology, today announced a new partnership with fintech, Zolve which provides immigrants moving to or visiting the United States with the financial services tools they need for their journey.
Zolve allows users to establish a bank account from their home country for use in the United States, as well as debit and credit services. These accounts come with FDIC protection (through partner bank) for amounts up to $250,000 and can be established completely online before arriving in the USA, with any amount as a starting balance and no upfront fees.
“Traveling to a new country for work, school, or to even visit, can be challenging enough without the added concerns of navigating a foreign country’s financial services landscape,” said Raghunandan G., founder of Zolve. “Zolve and i2c’s partnership works to offer these individuals a smooth transition, saving users time and empowering them with financial security from their first moment in the US,” he continued.
“We’re delighted to partner with Zolve and to share in their vision of removing barriers to financial access across the world,” said Amir Wain, founder and CEO of i2c. “Our partnership with Zolve reinforces this commitment by expanding access to financial services for global citizens, supporting them as they travel to the US and increasing their peace of mind, along the way,” he added.
The company’s credit card has no annual fees and requires no Social Security number to establish, which means it can be used the moment the user arrives in the United States. The product also features a substantial credit limit, and the ability to block and unblock the card from a mobile app.
