Visa Europe CEO warns on fads; claims company has edge on new rivals

first_img LIVE FROM MONEY 2020 EUROPE, COPENHAGEN: Nicolas Huss, CEO of Visa Europe, warned of a changing payments landscape but confided the credit card giant has a plan for keeping ahead of upstart rivals.Huss contrasted the historic way innovation worked, which involved steady and incremental change, with the digital model, which takes hold quicker but does not stick around for so long. He chose the hoverboard, with his tongue only half in his cheek, as being emblematic of the trend. “The world has moved on, the fad is over, and no one cares.”This is a volatile world, in which established players have to react faster. He had a number of points for how this might happen. His first point related to what he termed “viral trends and passing fads” and pointed to how quickly new traffic flows can occur in payments. He mentioned rates of growth in contactless payments, which are “unprecedented”. In 2016 Visa Europe handled a volume of more than 3.5 billion contactless payments, against 1.7 billion in 2015. This is clearly not a fad.Huss argued that the old school development cycle is no longer valid. “The raison d’etre can half vanish before the product is even released. We must accelerate and democratise development. Or leave a vacuum that others will fill.”This brought Huss to his second point, which is to capture more of the innovative spirit in the fintech community, for instance with innovation hubs in London, Tel Aviv and Berlin, as well as opening APIs to outside developers.Next up, he listed a “security obsession” possessed by Visa that newcomers to the market will have to match.Fourth was the global ripple effect which Visa Europe hopes to benefit from when it is reunited with Visa Inc to form a worldwide business. As an example, he said a global business has an advantage in combating advanced fraud.

Lloyds counsels calm on credit

first_imgHigh street firms should not fear a ‘kneejerk’ reaction from banks restricting lending in the wake of high-profile firm failures, according to a big-four bank. The collapse of Manchester firm Cobbetts in January, which followed the demise in 2010 of regional giant Halliwells, has led to acute concerns over the availability of credit. But Chris Marston, head of professional practices at Lloyds TSB, told the Gazette: ‘There will be no kneejerk reaction from banks, nor would that be appropriate.’ He said firms can ‘take comfort’ from the fact banks will not change their approach to lending to the legal sector due to one-off high-profile collapses, but will consider a range of factors. Marston said the bank views solicitors as being of high integrity and the instances where it has written off law firm debt have been low compared with other sectors. ‘The partnership model has been a factor, as partners are jointly and severally personally liable,’ he said. Lloyds TSB, said Marston, has credit policies for all important sectors, including legal, which are reviewed twice a year. The next review for solicitors’ firms will be in around four months. The bank considers a number of factors, including how its book is performing and whether there are loans that are not being serviced, as well as external factors affecting the sector, such as alternative business structures. ‘We look at trends, not single instances,’ he added. Despite the economic climate and potential for increased competition from certain ABSs, he said the bank has seen a ‘surprising’ number of start-ups.last_img read more

Bozhinov started with Levski after a meeting with Sirakov

first_imgThe owner of “Levski” Nasko Sirakov held a meeting with Valeri Bozhinov, after which it became clear that the striker began training at “Gerena”. PHOTO: VELISLAV NIKOLOV He could play for the Blues from SeptemberValeri Bozhinov starts training with “Levski” today, after yesterday he agreed with the owner of the “blue” Nasko Sirakov.The 34-year-old striker has a valid contract with the Italian “Pescara” until August 31. Until that date, he is not allowed to be registered for another club. Therefore, he has no right to participate in the matches of the “blues” at least for the first 4 rounds of the First League – against “Beroe”, “Arda”, “Tsarsko Selo” and “Montana”, even if he signs a contract with “Levski”. At the moment, no specific talks have been held for signing, and Sirakov’s idea is for Valeri Bozhinov to help with experience and mood for the growth of the young football players of Gerena.“I talked to Nasko Sirakov, I will start training with the club, but at this stage there is nothing concrete. There is no point in saying the same things every day. The most important is “Levski”. When there is something clear, you will all understand it “, Bozhinov told Sportal.bg. “At this stage we all need to unite and think about the good of our favorite club. It will be difficult, but with the joint efforts of management, coaches, players and especially the fans, “Levski” will survive. I’m sure. It takes a lot of work, because the situation is really very difficult in the club, not only in the team, but I am optimistic “, added Valeri.As soon as he returned to Bulgaria, he went to Gerena to see coach Georgi Todorov and his good friend Zhivko Milanov. And with a comment under a post by Nikolai Mihailov, he hinted that he was returning.And if he really signs, this will be his third stay at Levski. In 2014 he recorded 20 games and 8 goals. In 2019 there were 11 matches and 4 goals. Namely, his winning goal in the barrage for the Europa League against “Eter” a year ago is his last goal in his career so far.last_img read more
