This is largely due to the following reasons; the complexity and mix of skillsets required to deploy financial services within a traditionally non-financial organisation, lack of product integration within the Embedded Finance ecosystem and with other core business systems, the ability to create trust with their customers and finally the ability to deploy an engagement platform that provides the foundations to allow the Corporate to successfully launch and scale their offerings to customers.


The Embedded Finance market is valued at £50bn today and analysts report 30% CAGR growth until 2030 where the market will be valued at £500bn. Around 10% of Corporates are already engaging in Embedded Finance and more interestingly around 55% expanded their offerings in the last 2 years. Our client is here to partner and unlock this growth opportunity for Corporates.
