W2 will help the digital bank boost financial inclusion in a region where more than half the population does not have access to a bank account.
Newport, South Wales – 21st May 2020 – W2, the leading provider of real-time digital solutions for global regulatory compliance, announced today that it has joined forces with neobanking group Jingle Pay to power a new digital solution for the unbanked and underbanked in the U.A.E.
Addressing financial exclusion by offering the unbanked / underbanked population access to a paperless bank account within minutes from registering, Jingle Pay are planning to aggregate a number of financial services.
As a multi-currency card, P2P payments for sharing and splitting bills with friends, access to cheaper and transparent remittance/exchange services, micro/nano financing and other value added services are all housed within a social network mobile application.
Sharing details of the banking solution, Amir Fardghassemi, Jingle Pay Founder & CEO, stated “The Jingle Pay Super app delivers a personalized consumer journey powered by the cutting-edge technologies of W2.”
“We’re looking to give an overlooked audience a convenient, cost-effective and safe alternative to a traditional bank account and accessibility to core financial services/products which can improve their welfare.”
According to the latest report from World Bank Group, as many as 1.7 billion adults remain unbanked globally, without an account at a financial institution or through a mobile money provider.
