River Bank
(“Cross River”), a leading innovator and provider of
banking services for financial technology companies, today announced
that it has entered into a partnership agreement with RS2
, a global payments processing and technology provider.
Together, Cross River and RS2 will provide merchants with a seamless,
global payment experience for processing credit and debit card
transactions, as well as digital banking for their workers and consumers.

“Cross River and RS2 understand that technology innovators demand
regulated, secure payment solutions that address dynamic, ongoing
changes in the marketplace,” said Phil Goldfeder, SVP, Public Affairs at
Cross River. “In today’s global economy, payment needs are fast-evolving
with merchants gravitating towards payment providers who offer broader
multifaceted services in one place. We are confident that our
best-in-class, compliant fintech banking services – combined with RS2’s
industry-leading processing solution– will enable workers and merchants

periods. Fintech companies will also benefit from Cross River’s robust
regulatory compliant platform that will enable companies to focus on
innovating beyond legacy systems to create efficient card processing and
banking capabilities and enable users to receive funds faster.

“RS2 embraces the complex elements of payments – multiple channels,
payment types, countries and currencies – and transforms them into
opportunity, growth, and innovation,” said Daniela Mielke, CEO of RS2
Software North America. “Cross River is an ideal, like-minded partner as
they view the transformation of banking as a catalyst for offering
breakthrough products and services, as well as unique payment
capabilities that drive superior payments, thereby allowing businesses
to optimize customer experiences and minimize the time, effort, and
costs associated with managing their payment practices.”
