Xavier Pansaers (CEO, Infinite) commenting on his appointment and the launch of the new industry designed and built financial technology operating system - Infinite:
“As technology-based partnerships continue to empower organizations and economies, I am delighted to be joining a firm that is positioned to support this incredible rate of change and ready to bring Infinite to the next generation of financial technology intelligence. The genesis of Infinite, built in partnership with the industry and in-line with many new and leading global standards, is a unique opportunity that I am extremely excited to be a part of. I look forward to growing the business, building a highly talented team and serving the industry in new and unprecedented ways.”

Jack Ma (Executive Chairman, Alibaba Group) commenting from Davos 2019 on his methodology for hiring people and nurturing talent:

“When I hire people, I hire the people who are smarter than I am. People who four, five years later could be my boss. I like people who I like, who are positive and who never give up. The best people are optimistic and don’t complain… You always want your students to be better than you, to be a mayor, not in prison. Rule number one: help people to be better than you are.”
