Fiserv wrapped up some important business today. The Wisconsin-based financial services company finalized its acquisition of debit processing technology from U.S. Bank’s Elan Financial Services; a deal Fiserv first announced in September. Terms of the acquisition, which does not include the Elan credit card issuing and corporate payments businesses, were undisclosed.
Fiserv will benefit from Elan’s debit card processing, ATM Managed Services, and MoneyPass network. MoneyPass is the second largest fee-free network in the U.S., offering users access to more than 33,000 ATMs across the nation.
On the other side of the table, Fiserv will offer Elan clients services including risk management solutions, access to the Accel debit payments network, and enhanced debit platform capabilities. As Tim Welsh, vice chairman of Consumer Banking Sales and Support at U.S. Bank explained, “Our customers will now benefit from the long-term commitment Fiserv has for this business and its clients and U.S. Bank will benefit as we continue to reinvest in our core businesses.”
President and CEO of Fiserv, Jeffery Yabuki, said, “This acquisition expands our capabilities and provides additional expertise, which together should enhance the value we provide our clients.”
Fiserv recently appeared on the FinovateSpring 2018 stage alongside Samsung SDS, where the two showcased how Samsung SDS integrates its biometric authentication and collaboration solutions into Fiserv’s Commercial Center: Security (CC:S) to create a more secure and convenient digital banking experience. Earlier this fall, Fiserv launched a new digital origination solution, Originate.
