Saxo Payments CEO Joins Emerging Payments Association Advisory Board

People Moves

Anders la Cour, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of industry-leading cross border payments innovator, Saxo Payments, has been appointed to the Emerging Payments Association (EPA) Advisory Board for 2017.

Advisory Board members are nominated and elected to the board each year from the existing sponsors based upon their ability to lead and influence the payments industry.  Having been named Emerging Payments Entrepreneur of the Year in October, Anders la Cour was considered a strong candidate to bring a new perspective to the EPA Advisory Board.

“It is tremendously exciting to become part of the Emerging Payments Association advisory board” said Anders la Cour.  “I hope to bring a unique combination of commercial acumen, M&A experience and an entrepreneurial mind-set 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 mid-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, rather than days, without 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.

The first meeting of the Advisory Board takes place on 11th January 2017.
