Thirdstream’s platform provides the BFSI sector with the digital workflows to rapidly register new applicants and help existing account holders acquire new products and services from their financial institutions.
“Our relationship with Marble Financial provides our clients with advanced solutions, helping them present leading financial products and services to consumers across Canada,” says Keith Ginter, thirdstream’s CEO. “Based on the positive feedback from clients we consulted, we are confident this is a track that will be enormously beneficial to clients. As our strategy evolves, we attract partners who can help us enrich our Platform as a Service. Marble is helping us provide depth in areas critical to financial institutions as they enrich the lives of their customers. We see opportunities for our clients and our partners, which today include Central 1 and ebankIT, both with expanding client bases in Canada today.”
Pursuant to the licensing agreement, Marble will license both its Marble Connect API and the Inverite platform to thirdstream, allowing thirdstream to enhance its platform ecosystem and technology solutions for BFSI clients and benefiting their clients’ underlying customers.

It will provide these BFSIs with additional tools and real-time data insights on their customers, providing additional products and solutions to offer their underlying customers. Marble’s AI-driven solutions will provide these BFSI companies with more informed insights on risk and tools to assist with customer retention. BFSIs will also have the ability to attract both additional consumers as well as better support existing account holders, and, in the case of credit unions, existing members, through access to the new consumer solutions offered on the MyMarble platform.

We anticipate that licensing arrangements with thirdstream will expose our technology solutions to thirdstream’s impressive list of 50+ BFSI clients, and, by extension, the 6.4 million consumers those clients serve. We believe this relationship will support our future revenue growth initiatives by providing the potential to add a significant number of new users to our MyMarble platform as well as adding new Inverite clients.
