Embedded finance enables any business to incorporate banking services and products. Goldman Sachs’ new transaction banking-as-a-service platform, TxB, offers enterprise clients banking services that they can embed into their products and software platforms.

Goldman Sachs’ transaction banking APIs marry technology with banking services such as deposit payments, liquidity solutions, virtual accounts and escrow services.

Similar to Goldman Sachs’ other digital venture, Marcus, which offers personal loans and high-yield savings accounts to consumers, TxB aligns with Goldman Sachs’ digital strategy to expand its reach and businesses.
