NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#embeddedfinance—Array announced today its inclusion on GGV Capital’s Embedded Fintech 50 list, which recognizes the industry’s most promising B2B financial services platform companies as judged by the world’s top startup investors.
As 10,000 US-based financial institutions and another 25,000 other fintech companies and digital brands look to deepen their relationships with customers by introducing new financial products and services, they need a way to build and support consumer-facing products like credit monitoring, identity protection and privacy management while maintaining speed to market and holding the line on costs. Array offers a platform of compelling consumer offerings that these companies can deploy inside of their branded digital experiences to increase engagement and drive new revenue opportunities.

We’re proud to be able to provide them with a platform that does that.”
