We challenge the status quo

Zed was founded on the belief that young people deserve so much more from their financial institutions. We built Zed from scratch, put powerful tech at its center, and designed it for Southeast Asians above all.

Zed exists to unleash our ambitions to travel the world

We’re unlocking wealth creation for the next generation of Southeast Asia’s leaders, builders, and creators. We see responsible credit-building as the key to long-term financial success. Yet for most young professionals in our region, credit is arbitrarily awarded, antiquated, or inaccessible.

That’s why we built Zed. We believe young professionals—especially in Southeast Asia—deserve and expect more from their money.


Where Southeast Asia meets Silicon Valley. Like Zed, our founders bring together the best of local know-how and global innovation.
