MMV and PayKey expand partnership to enable banks tap into the embedded banking opportunity

News 7. July 2021.

Match-Maker Ventures (MMV) announced today an extension of its partnership with PayKey, a Tel Aviv-based fintech company which has set its goal to embed banking services in customers’ everyday lives.

The enhanced partnership, prompted by the recent introduction of PayKey’s new Earned Wage Access solution for banks, will enable Match-Maker Ventures to better serve the pressing needs of the banking industry and enable banks to become key players in the embedded finance field with the help of PayKey.

Banks are nowadays facing a financial ecosystem which is changing rapidly. New players are entering the financial landscape, and customers increasingly consume financial services in non-financial environments – just to name two of the many pressing challenges in the banking field” said Dr. Nicolai Schättgen, Founder and CEO of Match-Maker Ventures. “Banks are losing their relevance and dominance if they do not react smartly and promptly to the changes happening in the market. With PayKey and its innovative embedded banking platform that offers the Banking Keyboard and Earned Wage Access solutions, banks not only embed their financial services in the flow of customers’ daily life but also offer unique and innovative technology to their customers– consequently setting themselves apart from the increasing competition.

MMV will continue serving as a strategic partner for PayKey’s international expansion with the help of its network of over 100 senior executives around the world, who understand current banking pain points and future trends happening in this field. “We have already been successfully collaborating with Match-Maker Ventures for several years now and are extremely excited to take this partnership to the next level with the introduction of our new Earned Wage Access solution and more embedded banking solutions to come. We believe it will allow us to substantially grow our business by leveraging MMV’s network of industry experts” said Sheila Kagan, CEO of PayKey. PayKey’s new Earned Wage Access solution will enhance MMV’s portfolio in the banking sector, solving a pressing challenge the industry faces today.
