Montevideo, June 17, 2021 — Prometeo, the largest open banking platform in Latin America, today announced that it has joined Visa Fintech Partner Connect — a program designed to help Visa’s issuing clients quickly connect with a vetted and curated set of technology providers.
Prometeo is on a mission to create an open and connected financial market in Latin America by providing a single point of access to banking information, transactions, and payments across multiple financial institutions in the region. Prometeo brings interoperability to Latin America’s financial industry.
By empowering companies through banking API, third-party financial service providers will accelerate their digital transformation strategies while consumers will receive better financial products too: credit analysis development, bank account validation, centralized bill payments, financial education tools, electronic wallets, and payment tracking.

“In today’s climate, building a competitive financial product requires more technology than ever before. Consumers want seamless interactions across mobile and web, and they want access to a greater suite of digital banking capabilities,” said Terry Angelos, senior vice president and global head of fintech at Visa. “With Prometeo participating in the Fintech Partner Connect program, our clients will have access to powerful set of tools for building new digital-first experiences.”
