Digital banking platform to launch for LGBT+ community  

Digital banking platform Daylight has launched in the US for those who identify as LGBT+.  

In Brief:  

  • The platform is specifically designed to improve equality and inclusion for the community when it comes to finance.  

  • It will work with Visa, which offers a card with the customer’s preferred name.  

  • This is being built on the Marqeta platform.  

What does this mean?  

Increasingly, consumers are looking for highly personalised banking tools that reflect and support their lifestyle. Daylight says it’s offering support for the LGBT+ community that’s not just “performative” which is a problem with other companies.  

Daylight is currently preparing to beta test in December.
