Position

With over 30 years experience, Emily has built a reputation for delivering innovative ideas and solutions to Fintech companies and other established players. She has extensive experience in law, regulation, payment schemes and other infrastructure that apply to the fast moving payments, consumer finance, merchant acquiring and banking industries. Emily is working increasingly on projects where technology is disrupting the traditional relationships between banks and their customers, increasing competition and creating new products (e.g. robo-advice) and where the blockchain will drive further change, not just to crypto-currencies.
