Traditional banking and payment ecosystems are going through a state of upheaval as a steady stream of new distruptive Fintech players, virtual banks, and challengers enter the ring. I'm committing to working collaboratively with banks, regulatators, and the wider industry to nagivate this new and complex environment.
Airwallex has tasked itself with a monumental vision to re-imagine the global payments landscape, and I respect the scale and enormity of this task. I acknowledge that our mission is not something that can be accomplished alone. Banks are, and will continue to be, a crucial facet of the international payments market. I believe that only through collaboration and a recognition of shared strategic visions and commitment to our customers, will Airwallex be able to realise our mission of connecting and providing opportunity to people and businesses in all corners of the globe.
