Single-payments platform will deliver a bespoke payments and banking solution.
Acquired.com’s ground-breaking payment technology is used by a growing list of innovative companies who demand excellence. We are delighted to announce our latest partnership with Fintern, a newly launched FCA regulated lender. Fintern is on a mission to expand access to low-cost personal finance in the UK. They do this by taking a holistic approach, analysing each customer’s entire financial situation – incomings, outgoings, current repayments and repayment history – rather than relying solely on a credit score, like many traditional lenders do.
Acquired.com was selected by Fintern due to their ability to aggregate fund disbursement, collections and data-rich reporting. Incorporated in the solution is a fully digital banking and API driven loan delivery solution, managed on a single platform, from pay-in to pay-out.
“Acquired.com is on a mission to deliver a best-of-breed payments platform that is built for scale and is supported by market leading, customer-centric service. We are delighted to announce this latest partnership with Fintern and look forward to supporting their future growth.” said Gerald Kitchen, Acquired.com’s CEO.
Michelle He, Fintern’s Co-Founder and COO commented that “consumer lending is broken; our mission is to fix it. In order to achieve that, we need our carefully selected suppliers to maintain the highest standards, to deliver exemplary customer service and to offer customer-driven and flexible solutions. The Acquired.com team has demonstrated the ability to deliver on these demands.”
