SAN FRANCISCO — February 25, 2021 - Treasury Prime, the leading Banking as a Service (BaaS) company, announced today that it has partnered with Marqeta, the global modern card issuing platform, to bring Marqeta’s modern card issuing capabilities to the Treasury Prime API. For the first time, fintechs and other companies that want to embed banking services, can get access to both banking services and card issuing via a single API. The Treasury Prime-Marqeta partnership is live today with LendingClub Bank, National Association (successor to Radius Bank) and will be live in March with Piermont Bank.

Now that Treasury Prime has integrated Marqeta into its API, its customers can issue, activate, and manage the entire card lifecycle using the same API they use for every other banking service. In addition, Treasury Prime provides program management services including network agreements, BIN management, fraud detection tools, and custom card design, printing, packaging, and shipping services. Developers can test new functionality in the Treasury Prime Developer Sandbox.

“This partnership is a perfect fit because Marqeta and Treasury Prime share a commitment to building modern financial infrastructure,” said Chris Dean, CEO of Treasury Prime. “We’ve seen fintechs face launch delays as a result of working with multiple technology vendors, and when you need to get to market fast, that can be an existential threat. By partnering with industry leaders like Marqeta, we become the one-stop shop for all banking services, and fintechs don’t need to compromise on the breadth or quality of their embedded financial services.”

“Marqeta delivers modern card issuing that empowers innovators to deliver game-changing financial products, and we see Treasury Prime as an important new channel partner, helping us further deepen our position in the modern banking stack,” said Salman Syed, SVP/GM of North America at Marqeta. “Treasury Prime shares our focus on creating great developer experiences, which massively simplify the process of building in banking and card products at scale.”

"Challenger jumped at the opportunity to be the first banking product to build on Treasury Prime and Marqeta at LendingClub Bank,” said Nate Gruendemann, CEO at Challenger, a neobank for employers to sponsor financial services for their employees. “Their reputation and track records gave us confidence to re-platform away from another banking stack. Their modern and scalable infrastructure helps us build faster to meet the growing needs of our users."
