Winners revealed at the UK Emerging Payments Awards 2016

London - 13 October 2016

Global leaders and innovators in PayTech and FinTech were rewarded last night at the 2016 Emerging Payments Awards.

Recognising and celebrating the best the payments industry has to offer, the Emerging Payments Awards were presented at The Hilton, Park Lane in London on Wednesday 12th October.

Emerging with multiple trophies to its name, Vodafone was recognised by the judges for its Wallet technology and loyalty offering, while Saxo Payments picked up three awards, including its CEO Anders la Cour, identified as a leading entrepreneurial voice in emerging payments. UK start-up Wirecard took home two awards, including Leading Prepaid Organisation.

Tony Craddock, Chairman, The Emerging Payments Awards, commented: “The Emerging Payments Awards are the highlight of the PayTech calendar and we’re thrilled this year to see so much innovation in both payment technology and services that are making a real difference to consumers’ lives all over the world.”

“Payments is one of the most dynamic and exciting industries in the world today, driven forwards by the creative minds behind many of the payment methods we use securely and conveniently worldwide. We have worked extremely hard over the last 12 months to ensure that each of our awards reflect what is actually happening on the ground with new emerging and alternative payments and I’d like to congratulate all of the nominees and winners on their success this year.”

New awards for 2016 included specific categories for proximity payments, (not only contactless), and also CSR and consumer banking initiatives. These joined an established programme of awards looking for best incentive, consumer and corporate prepaid programme, front- and back-end innovations, and Leading Emerging Payments Organisation.
