Jeffery Yabuki (CEO, Fiserv) commenting on Fiserv’s acquisition of First Data:

“We admire First Data for its excellence in merchant acquiring and global issuing services, and the tremendous progress they have made under Frank’s leadership. We expect this combination to catalyze and support an enhanced value proposition for our collective clients and their customers.”

Klaus Schwab (Executive Chairman, WEF) commenting ahead of the World Economic Forum on the topic of globalisation:

“We have to define a new approach to globalization which is more inclusive. Globalization produces winners and losers and there are many more winners in the last 24, 25, 30 years — but now we have to look after the losers, after those who have been left behind…..Globalization is also a phenomenon driven by technology and the movement of ideas, people, and goods. It is an ideology that prioritizes the neoliberal global order over national interests. Nobody can deny that we are living in a globalized world. But whether all of our policies should be ‘globalist’ is highly debatable.”

Sam Tidswell-Norrish, Motive Partners, commenting on the Global FinTech Nightcap at Davos next week:

“Ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos, we at Motive Partners are delighted to be hosting the Global FinTech Nightcap with Infosys on 22nd January. This is our 4th year of the event and we are honoured to be co-hosting this year with Allied Irish Bank, Bradesco, Emirates NBD, Mastercard and Royal Bank of Scotland. We look forward to seeing many of our partners, portfolio firms and friends in the mountains!”
