Synctera is creating a marketplace model for its banking as a service platform

BaaS firm Synctera launched in December.

The company’s vision is for fintechs to be able to use the platform to launch financial products like ledger and ACH. While some older BaaS platforms are wedded to a single partner bank, Synctera wants to offer fintechs options to work with different banks and products on its platform.
