Launched in 2019, QPS has already established itself as the pioneers in the card issuing ecosystem of India and has now set its eyes on the fast growing European market. By optimising its secure open API issuer processing platform, QPS would be focussing on the real needs of the end user and would enable companies to customise their unique card programmes. The company will invest £10m and create 100 new jobs, including several high skilled positions in the Tech and Fintech industry.

I’m very pleased that QPS has decided to join the legions of Indian companies investing in the UK, boosting our FinTech sector and driving economic growth.”
Speaking on the launch Mr. Vinay Kalantri, Founder & CEO said, “Expanding our business operations to the United Kingdom, establishes us as one of the fastest growing fintech companies from India. We are the latest entrant in this highly competitive and fast growing ecosystem and have managed to scale our operations by purely focus on technology disruption.

We truly believe that technology could be the defining factor that would enable us to capture 20% of card issuing market within the first 2 years. We are also looking at clocking up revenues to the tune of £100 million in the next three years by targeting the overall BFS industry of The United Kingdom. We are truly grateful to the Government of United Kingdom for giving us this opportunity and look forward to a fruitful business association with them.”
