Together, the companies have launched Cambr, which includes the capabilities of Q2 Open's digital cloud-based platform (CorePro) and StoneCastle's digital deposit network of more than 800 community banks (StoneCastle Deposit Network). Cambr also includes strategic relationships with partner financial institutions (FIs) that serve as banks of record.

Leading fintech companies and brands can now rapidly and seamlessly offer deposit accounts, debit cards and other financial products and services, expanding their customer relationships all under their brand name. Cambr's innovative structure delivers robust interest and interchange revenue while providing security, scale, and stability.

"We're proud to partner with Q2 on this exciting opportunity," said Josh Siegel, CEO of StoneCastle. "Through Cambr, innovative and respected non-bank companies can easily deliver best-of-breed digital financial products while redirecting deposits to community banks, the engine of small business growth in America."

"As new entrants continue to join the financial services race, it's our mission to find new and creative ways for FIs to play a critical role in delivering these services," said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. "We've found the right partner for this mission in StoneCastle. The sheer size and scope of its deposit network combined with our CorePro platform gives every company a better way to deliver financial services, while strengthening community financial institutions."
