HOUSTON, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics announced today that Fortú, the first culturally contextual digital bank account for Latino and Hispanic-Americans, has partnered with Cardtronics to offer surcharge-free cash access for its members through the Allpoint Network of ATMs.
Fortú users now have convenient and fee-free access to their funds through the Allpoint Network of 55,000 ATMs located at top retail establishments, including grocery and convenience stores, pharmacies, and big-box stores.
Understanding the importance of family within the Latino community, Fortú aims to meet their unique needs in the U.S market, where households often share finances. Adding Allpoint’s retail-based ATMs to its platform helps Fortú bridge the gap between the Latino community's cultural needs and convenient access to hard-earned cash without fees.
“Cash is an important part of Latino and Hispanic financial lives in the U.S., and we’re proud to partner with Cardtronics in bringing its large network of conveniently located and surcharge-free Allpoint ATMs to our users,” said Charles Yim, Fortú CEO.
“Fortú is filling an important need by helping Latino households establish financial footing by offering things like convenient, secure, and surcharge-free access to cash,” said Carter Hunt, Managing Director of North America for Cardtronics. “It is a privilege to be a part of providing the infrastructure and support for creating a more inclusive financial ecosystem.”
Cardtronics’ Allpoint Network is the world’s largest retail-based surcharge-free ATM network, with more than 40,000 ATMs in the U.S. and 55,000 worldwide.
Fortú is a digital bank account built for the culturally contextual needs of the 60 million plus Latinos and Hispanics across the U.S. Based in Miami, FL, Fortú is backed by Valar Ventures and other leading fintech investors. Banking services are provided by LendingClub Bank N.A., Member FDIC.
