About Visa Inc.

Visa is a global payments technology company that connects consumers, businesses, banks & governments, enabling them to use digital currency and leave cash and checks behind. While Visa is a globally recognized brand, many people do not understand what the firm does, and it is commonly mistaken for a financial services company or a credit card company. In fact, the firm is one of the leaders in the payments tech industry-a status that leads the firm to describe itself as "a tech company that has been disrupting the payments industry for nearly 60 years."

History

Visa is at the center of a cashless revolution that has been more than 55 years in the making, and which dates back to to 1958, when Bank of America launched the BankAmericard, the first card with a "revolving credit" feature. Visa went public in 2008, raising $19.7 billion--the NYSE's largest-ever IPO until it was surpassed by Alibaba in 2015. The firm is listed on the NYSE under the symbol 'V', and continues to be a leader in the payments technology industry,  with majority market share and breakthrough technologies in the digital payments landscape.
