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."
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.
