US-based Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform Unit has partnered with digital-first bank Thread Bank.


Unit, which empowers companies to embed financial services into their products, and the Tennessee-based bank will allow companies to embed a complete set of banking services into their offerings, including accounts, cards, payments, and lending, using a single platform, in a matter of weeks, according to the official press release.

Thread’s CEO and President said that they ‘believe the future of banking is digital, connected, contextual, and customer-first. Through meticulously-selected partnerships and technology, Thread Bank’s banking strategy will improve the way individuals and small business customers manage everyday banking tasks. Unit’s technology platform is an evolving solution that continues to provide customers better products and services over time’.

Together, Unit and Thread Bank are positioned to offer customers improved banking experiences by combining better finance and technology capabilities. The partnership has already been successful with several companies poised to launch banking and credit products in the coming weeks, the official press release states.
