Mastercard is a name synonymous with the global financial services industry.

And yet, behind the more than 50 years of payments technology innovation, and the more than 2.5 billion Mastercard-embossed cards in circulation globally, lies a hugely important supply chain and procurement operation that few are aware of.

It is this aspect of the business that appears in this month’s cover feature. 

We speak with Mastercard’s Director, Sourcing and Supplier Management, Mark Bromley, to find out just how this essential function continues to drive the business forward.

A seasoned financial services veteran with previous stints at Barclays Investment Bank and American Express, Bromley is responsible for building sourcing strategies that align with Mastercard’s corporate vision.

More recently, this has included implementing the Mastercard Start Path, a process that enables the seamless onboarding of startups into the Mastercard ecosystem. 

This issue also includes deep-dives into the worlds of many leading companies, such as Telstra, OTIP, United Asia Finance and Loan Market. 

Our feature content takes a sweeping view across many of the most important trends driving fintech.

For example, we explore Accenture’s views and insights into what the cybersecurity threat landscape may look like in 2020. The eight virtual banks disrupting Hong Kong’s financial sector also fall under our radar, as do the latest AI and machine learning developments in the insurtech sector.
