Sunwest Bank launches visionary card with Torpago and Marqeta technology

Sunwest Bank, known for its commitment to entrepreneurial businesses, has embarked on an innovative journey with Torpago and Marqeta. 

Together, they have launched the Sunwest Visionary Card, a commercial credit card and expense management solution that symbolizes modern financial management.

The partnership aims to redefine banking for community businesses. Community banks, often considered the financial backbone of local communities, are increasingly recognizing the importance of digital transformation to cater to their customer base. This collaboration is a testament to the evolving landscape of banking, where digital and mobile banking solutions are becoming pivotal for customer satisfaction and business growth.

Torpago is at the forefront of this transformation, offering a bank-branded technology platform that streamlines everything from loan origination and card issuing to fraud monitoring and expense management. Its partnership with Marqeta enriches this offering, leveraging Marqeta’s modern card issuing API to deliver a seamless, cloud-native, event-driven infrastructure.

On the other hand, Sunwest Bank stands as a paradigm of entrepreneurial support, deeply invested in nurturing business growth and financial health in communities. The bank’s vision of modernization, powered by the Torpago ‘Powered By’ solution, is not just about offering cutting-edge products; it’s about fostering relationships, enhancing customer experiences, and driving business forward.

The recent launch of the Sunwest Visionary Card is a significant stride in this direction. The card is not merely a financial tool; it’s a growth engine, designed to empower visionary entrepreneurs. The collaboration between Sunwest, Torpago, and Marqeta is a powerful alliance, blending technology, banking, and strategic vision to deliver a banking solution that’s modern, efficient, and customer-centric.

Torpago CEO and founder Brent Jackson said, “By equipping Sunwest with a powerful technology platform, we expect Sunwest to generate new income streams, attract deposits and improve operating efficiency.

“Working with Sunwest and Marqeta has been fantastic and we are thrilled to be the engine behind the Visionary Card.”
