The Impact of Brexit on Digital Payments: How is Big Tech Getting Ready?

EuroWhile major European and international financial institutions are consumed with crafting their Brexit coping strategies, Big Tech firms such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Uber and others are forging ahead with new digital payment initiatives. What are the risks and opportunities for key players?

Without much fanfare, Google and other large technology firms are building up an extensive payment and compliance infrastructure that will be poised at some near point in the future to compete effectively with major financial institutions both within and outside the EU.
