Visa processes more than 500 million transactions every day. How is the world’s largest digital payment platform adapting to new technologies and fresh competition? Charlotte Hogg, executive vice president and CEO of its European operations, joins Azeem Azhar to explore the evolving ecosystem of digital payments.

They also discuss:

  • Why Visa should be seen as a platform-based technology company like Google, despite being an established financial institution.
  • Why the Visa’s “open network” model demands a level playing field for all participants.
  • Why an increasingly cashless world is pushing central banks towards digital currencies.
  • How the payment platform is now enabling settlement in the USDC stablecoin – a cryptocurrency pegged to the U.S. dollar.
