In this week’s newsletter, we find out what’s driving the success of sustainability initiatives among banks in APAC and also learn of the seemingly bright future in store for GoTo in the region. We also take a look at the growing popularity of the cloud among payments providers and the risks and rewards that come with adopting a multi-acquirer model for merchants. Celent provides a useful tool for assessing customer identity management practices and we consider cybersecurity trends in insurance. Finally, four fintechs that focus on securities processing for digital assets are assessed.
