PSD2, Open APIs and the opportunity to reduce payment fees
The growth of the cloud has steadily been transforming the way business is done, with legacy systems across sectors finding themselves pushed to one side. Few industries are seeing this shift more dramatically than fintech.
The transformation is seeing the rise and rise of new platforms and services offering new ways of working. One of London’s leading fintech providers now doing just that is Currency Cloud. At its heart, Currency Cloud offers cross-border payments as a service.
Any organisation providing payment services can benefit from the CC platform. These include small banks, FX brokers, payments companies, e-commerce businesses, financial institutions, online and mobile payment providers, pre-paid card providers and digital currency exchanges.
Stephen Lemon is Co-Founder of Currency Cloud, which he established in 2009. He is now Vice President of Business Development as well as a Non-Executive Board Member of Synops and Currency Transfer. Before founding Currency Cloud, Steve was a co-founding member at “old-school retail brokerage” HiFX, where he was in charge of private client business. From there Lemon moved on to co-found Indigo Recruitment, which specialised in finding talent for foreign exchange and financial industry positions.
