Husband on leash breached Quebec's COVID curfew
The curfew is needed to prevent gatherings that have fueled the rampant spread of the virus, Quebec Premier Francois Legault said. Quebec became the first province to enforce a curfew over the weekend to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
Founded in 2012, Ribbit has invested in some high-profile Fintechs including Affirm, Credit Karma and Robinhood. That, combined with spending in its stores, its credit and prepaid cards, and seeing foot traffic to bank branches in its locations, means Walmart has access to a trove of information about the ways consumers manage their finances. The retailer's fintech flirtation, more specifically, comes after new U.S. regulations made it easier for non-banks to get into the lending business.
"Walmart can benefit from this move into more services and it will be interesting to see the applications that come out of the new startup. We will use our partners to roll out new products". The amount of customers creates a powerful incentive for Walmart to provide financial services.
With more than 5,000 stores globally, Walmartinteracts with millions of customers each year - including some who don't have a relationship with a bank or a financial advisor.
