Saxo Payments, a global transactions services provider, announced today that its co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Anders la Cour has been appointed to the Emerging Payments Association (EPA) Advisory Board for 2017.

La Cour was considered a strong candidate to bring a new perspective to the EPA Advisory Board after being named Emerging Payments Entrepreneur of the Year last October.
He commented: “I hope to bring a unique combination of commercial acumen, M&A experience and an entrepreneurial mindset which will complement the expertise and experience of the other members. And I look forward to getting involved in the debates and discussions that will encourage business and industry to engage with the emerging technologies coming to market.”
Following its launch in 2015, the Saxo Payments Banking Circle has challenged the status quo in the global payments industry, enabling members to make and receive cross border transfers in seconds instead of days, while eliminating the need to establish multiple banking relationships.
A steady stream of new members have signed up to reap the benefits of the web-based payment solution, including international financial service provider Tramonex, which embarked on a partnership with Saxo Payments to promote more cohesive cross-border transfers for its clients, as reported by Finance Magnates back in September.
