Rajan Bajaj, founder and CEO of Slice said the banking industry in India often views credit cards as a loan product instead of a high-frequency payment instrument.

“Therefore, banks’ main focus is to optimise the fees and portfolios while overlooking the experience. However, we see Slice Card as a classic payment product, and we are solving it as a customer experience problem with a customer-centric approach in mind,” he added.

This fundraiser is a testament to the strength and success of Slice’s products at scale, the company’s strong fundamentals, and its high-value potential, Bajaj said.
