The Mizuho Debit Card Introduced in Asia
Mizuho Bank, in partnership with global technology company Wirecard Group, introduces a corporate debit card in Asia. This significant enhancement to our transaction banking service offering will allow us, through Wirecard, to issue the card and enable Mizuho corporate clients in the Asia region to accept the card for payment.
With this new service, our clients that accept the debit card will benefit from greater speed and convenience in realizing cash into their Mizuho bank account. On the issuing side, we have broadened our full servicing banking offering to include corporate debit cards for added convenience.
Wirecard issued a press release on March 14 to announce this new partnership. They also announced it in the "Money 20/20" Asia conference in Singapore on the same day.
