Aleph currently manages over $2bn worth of total cross border credit and payments through its network across international markets, and it is a trusted operator for its partners and clients. Aleph’s proven reputation and expertise in primarily emerging markets provides the business with a solid foundation to roll out its payment service to new partners and clients.
Gaston Taratuta, Aleph’s CEO and Founder and EY’s 2022 Entrepreneur of the World explains: “We have built our company with the capability to adapt to the ever changing needs of the digital industry. We will expand our cross border payment and credit underwriting capabilities into other subcategories within the digital advertising ecosystem such as SSP’s, DMP’s, DSP’s, ad-quality, viewability, ad-serving tech, apps, gaming, etc. We are local market experts who can solve the complexities so global ad tech companies can focus on their core businesses, and local advertisers can finance their ad tech needs.
“We will also amplify our services to our current global partners such as Spotify, Uber, Meta, and new ones, expanding from our current services in digital advertising to allow cross border payment of streaming, mobility, and digital services commerce, among other categories. Finally, over 5,000 of Aleph’s current digital-native advertisers, who are striving to connect with global consumers, could potentially become customers by leveraging the capabilities of Aleph Payments.”
