Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Synctera is a Banking-as-a-Service platform that supplies users with the capabilities to build and launch successful FinTech apps or embedded banking products. By fast-tracking the work involved in finding a banking partner, and in discovering the right best-in-class tech, the platform frees businesses up to instead focus on their core operations.

Through the Synctera platform, businesses can build bank account and card programs, as well as incorporate services such as money movement and lending. The company also provides support and resources surrounding compliance and post-launch management, making it as simple as possible for clients to tap into the growing and fertile fintech market, and do it smartly.

The company faces extensive competition in a global market worth billions, but in helping to oil the wheels of collaboration and Fintech market access, it creates value for businesses across the board and stands well to reap the rewards. Recent funding is cited to fuel geographical expansion as well as grow its operations in Canada as it moves to add support for new credit, lending, and other banking use cases.
