KF Payments Perspective – Fall 2015: Retail Intelligence
Introducing Retail Intelligence
Our Fall 2015 Payments Perspective examines how payment providers (such as merchant acquirers and processors with strong merchant services businesses) are moving beyond payments-oriented value-added services (VAS), as means to escape the commoditization and eroded margins of core processing/acquiring services. A holistic approach to merchant services, we have coined “Retail Intelligence”, is required.

KF Payments Perspective – Spring 2015: Money Transfer Industry
MTOs Need to Look Beyond the Traditional to Find Faster Growth
Our Spring 2015 Payments Perspective examines the key trends impacting the global money transfer industry and how we believe Money Transfer Operators (MTOs) need to evolve their businesses to remain relevant. The money transfer business is under unrelenting pressure from a host of sources that are squeezing margins and threatening growth. Many MTOs recognize these challenges but continue to respond with old-school grounded visions of the industry. Traditional paths to growth are unlikely to lead to sustained market leadership and will only provide incremental gains. MTOs that want to capture and preserve long-term advantages need to consider adjacent areas of growth that can transform their industry.

Very few business domains have attracted as much interest as the world of payments.
