Our partnership with Falcon aligns with this approach as it empowers the Bank to create innovative propositions within shorter time periods without compromising on the quality and convenience that the Bank is known to bring forth across all its offerings. Going forward, we foresee an exponential demand for embedding financial products in newer ways, and with this collaboration, we aim to deliver that experience to our customers.”

Falcon offers a future-proof stack to build bespoke cards, payments, accounts, and lending products at unreal speeds to financial institutions and tech companies. The company’s leadership team packs in former executives from the world’s largest financial players like RBL Bank, HDFC, FIS, Zeta, and Mahindra Comviva. Backed by several marquee investors from the US, India, and the Middle East, Falcon aims to tap into the $30-billion market opportunity.
