Conference Call: The Year of Merging Massively

2019 has already seen billions of dollars in fintech M&A. The deals have come at a rapid enough pace that acquirers are often buying companies that are still absorbing deals of their own. Meanwhile, confronted with mega-competitors like Fiserv/First Data, FIS/Worldpay and Global Payments/TSYS, banks, payment processors and fintechs must reassess their own strategies.

What does it mean that banks' vendors are now offering services directly to retailers? Why did three of the largest deals of the past decade take place in the first half of 2019? How can the industry adapt to this sudden wave of consolidation?

PaymentsSource offered an exclusive conference call that discussed the impact of these events on the competitive market for banks, payment companies and their vendors. Hear PaymentsSource's John Adams and American Banker's Penny Crosman host a candid discussion on the topic.
