The payments ecosystem has witnessed a blossoming of digital innovation in recent times, from the back-end infrastructure to the point of sale. Now, ‘big tech’ is entering the fray. This episode featured on THRIVE examines the potential impact of the digitization of payments, with reference to the UK, where many payments innovations have been adopted sooner than most. Host Pete Swabey is joined by Adrian Buckle, head of research for trade association UK Finance; Steve Everett, managing director of payments for global transaction banking at Lloyds Banking Group; and Fiona Roach Canning, co-founder of UK-based fintech Pollinate.
