About MasterCard®

The future of money is MasterCard today

MasterCard is a company with a global perspective, but a keen customer focus. This includes our relationship with cardholders, merchants, financial institutions and strategic partners. It's what sets us apart from our competition.

We are committed to providing you with the highest-quality access to cash or to make payments, any time, anywhere. Our computer network, which takes less than a second on average to process a transaction, is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the world.

MasterCard constantly works with its commercial partners to develop integrated business solutions; provide customised, value-added services; and profitably grow their businesses.

We provide an 'umbrella' under which thousands of financial institutions can share a unified, recognised brand. One that provides our cardholders and merchants with unparalleled worldwide acceptance and access to their funds, with state-of-the-art security and true convenience.
