Financial utility recognised for innovative contribution to emerging payments industry
London, 3rd July 2019 – Banking Circle, the ground-breaking financial utility, has been named as a finalist in four coveted Emerging Payments Awards categories: Best International Payments, Remittance or use of FX; Best B2B Payments Programme; Best Back Office Innovation and Best Technical Service Organisation supporting Emerging Payments.
The 12th annual Emerging Payments Awards recognise excellence and innovation in payments, with winners selected by an international panel of expert judges looking for the best innovations in the payments ecosystem. Winners will be announced at a prestigious dinner and awards ceremony in London on 3rd October.
Anders la Cour, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Banking Circle commented: “It is fantastic to have been shortlisted for these industry-leading awards once again. In 2018 we won two of the four categories in which we are finalists this year, so it is hugely encouraging to be shortlisted again as it demonstrates the value of our continued innovation.
“2018-19 has been a busy, exciting and challenging year for Banking Circle. We launched highly-successful new solutions including Banking Circle Lending and Banking Circle Instant Settlement, the business was acquired by investment firm EQT for $300million and we published several industry white papers. We are committed to continually assessing gaps in the current market offering and developing ground-breaking solutions to meet the changing needs of the payments market. Being named as a finalist in four Emerging Payments Awards clearly shows that our dedicated team is serving our industry effectively.”
