SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MetaBank's payment solutions division Meta Payment Systems recently signed an agreement to partner with Card Limited, a company based out of Utah that provides financial products and services for unbanked and underbanked consumers. MetaBank will be the issuer of Card Limited's general purpose reloadable (GPR) cards, which are distributed through the company's online and affiliate channels.

Card Limited President Christopher Scanlon hopes that the partnership with MetaBank will continue his company's goals of driving ongoing value to its consumers and clients alike. "The work that MetaBank does is work that we can get behind," he said. "We're two companies with similar visions and goals, so it's a fitting match."

MetaBank has a history of utilizing Card Limited's services in the past, so expanding the issuing relationship is a welcome addition, according to MetaBank President Brad Hanson.

"Our values and our desire to provide financial inclusion for everyone align very well in the work we plan to continue to do together."
