Form3 today announces that Visa, a world leader in digital payments, has invested in the cloud-native account-to-account platform, which will help Form3 continue its expansion. This funding is in parallel to news that Form3 will provide Visa’s clients with access to their best-in-class payments platform, to enable them to modernise their payments’ infrastructure.

The new commercial partnership aims to bring our capabilities together in an effort to reduce high levels of fraud in real-time account-to-account payments, which includes building on Form3’s single API connectivity.  

Michael Mueller, Form3’s CEO, says: “Today’s Visa funding and partnership announcement demonstrates the confidence that they have in Form3’s ability to deliver for their customers. We are delighted with this unique partnership we have built in collaboration with Visa which enables us together to continue to offer best-in-class services for the world’s most established banks and financial institutions.”

Jack Forestell, Visa’s Chief Product and Strategy Officer, adds “A2A payments continue to grow in key segments and markets and Visa and Form3’s partnership will look to offer modern cloud-native access to real-time payment infrastructures. Together we can grow confidence in real-time A2A payments, as we seek to combine Form3’s FinCrime Orchestration service with Visa’s deep learning AI and real-time risk scoring to help financial institution clients better manage the risk of sending and receiving real-time A2A payments.”

The Visa investment will enable Form3 to continue its growth journey, developing new products and services, and expanding into new territories, where the emergence of real-time payment solutions are becoming essential.
