Research: List of top partner banks and the products and services they offer

For a company looking for a bank partner to help launch a financial product, it can be frustrating. It’s hard to tell what partner banks do and who offers what.

Partner banks, in general, don’t do a great job marketing themselves and frequently, their websites don’t have a lot of information about their business services.

Chances are high in the U.S. that fintech providers with some type of middleware or APIs to help create financial products are also working with sponsor banks.

The partner bank has become an integral part of the modern financial ecosystem as various industries embed financial services into their own businesses vis banking-as-a-service.

Any company can embed banking products — but that doesn’t mean they should

  • While every company can embed banking into their business, not every business should — those that deeply integrate banking into their product ecosystem instead of tacking on a feature are more likely to differentiate themselves and succeed in the long run.
  • To optimize your odds for success, define your strategy, product hooks and business models early; pick the right partners; and play to your strengths so you have a competitive advantage going in.
