Banking services like debit cards and savings accounts can be a valuable profit center and great way to create consumer engagement. Unfortunately, banking is hard. Or, rather, being a bank is hard.

The regulatory and operational lift required to become a fully chartered, FDIC-insured bank is heavy, and maintaining compliance can be an unforgiving, ongoing task. So, until very recently, a lot of banking products have been off the table to non-banks.

By successfully pulling these three elements together, Banking as a Service (BaaS) platforms like Cambr allow fintechs to offer high-yield savings accounts, checking accounts, debit cards, and other financial products that have traditionally only been available through banks.
