Issuing Sub-Accounts For End Clients With BaaS

Today’s FinTech’s rely on the ability to issue sub-accounts for end clients in multi-currency fashion.

Leveraging Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions can simplify this process, enabling firms to launch comprehensive banking services quickly and cheaply.





Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) is a model that allows FinTech’s to integrate banking services into their own front-end applications or platforms through APIs and provide end banking services without a need to develop banking networks on their won. Here are the BaaS advantages uncovered:
