Vista Bank Group (Vista) has selected Radar Payments to drive its global payment processing activities in West Africa.

Vista is a Pan-African financial services company, which aims to contribute to economic growth and financial inclusion across Africa. The group is expanding through a series of strategic acquisitions that include First International Bank Group in Gambia, followed by BNP Paribas’ subsidiaries La Banque Internationale pour le Commerce et l’Industrie de la Guinée in Guinea and La Banque Internationale pour le Commerce l’Industrie et l’Agriculture du Burkina in Burkina Faso.

Vista has selected Radar Payments by BPC as its partner to drive the adoption of digital payments in the region. Radar Payments will centralise payment operations at Vista’s tech hub located in Senegal, supervising Vista Bank’s activities in Guinea, Gambia, Burkina Faso, and Sierra Leone while leaving room for further banks to join its network. Vista also plans to expand to Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal, and Mali.

Vista Bank will use SmartVista, BPC’s payment suite, for card issuance and lifecycle management, payment switching, ATM and POS management, as well as for providing digital channels such as mobile banking and e-wallets, personalised for both retail and corporate clients. The bank is planning to accelerate the issuance of UnionPay International branded cards, including prepaid, debit, and premium cards, in addition to the acquisitions in ATM, POS, contactless and QR payments, as well as ecommerce.
