For more than 35 years the financial world has innovated through the solutions offered by Fiserv, the leader in financial technology and payment processing. The company represents a potential ally for Colombian fintech companies, capable of providing them with the necessary technology to be on par with large financial institutions and traditional banks.

The U.S.-based firm emerged before the Fintech concept itself. Its long history, coupled with its leadership in card issuance, e-commerce, acquiring, financial technology, banking solutions, and payment processing, has earned it recognition as the original fintech company.

Fiserv is a member of the S&P 500® Index – which tracks the 500 largest U.S. companies – and has been listed among Fortune® magazine’s World’s Most Admired Companies for 11 of the past 14 years.

The company has a presence in more than 100 countries, including Colombia, where it seeks to transform the Fintech ecosystem through its solutions and thereby contribute to greater financial inclusion.

“Colombia is one of the markets with the greatest Fintech progress globally, which tells us about the openness of the financial ecosystem to implement improvements from the technology front,” said Julian Buitrago, Country Manager of Fiserv in Colombia.

In banking, Signature is a core banking solution that facilitates the creation of new financial products. Card App is an easy-to-integrate mobile application where users can check their card balances and transactions wherever they are.
