About Anders la Cour

With a background as a technology and financial M&A lawyer, I moved into the financial tech industry to make cross border payments more efficient by providing banks and payment firms with mission-critical financial infrastructure.

As co-founder of Banking Circle, I’m incredibly excited to see our technology enabling banks and payment firms to provide their customers with access to fast, low cost international payments and banking solutions. And because we’re taking care of the onerous parts of the process, customers don’t have to build their own infrastructure or correspondent banking network. This is enabling customer growth and empowering financial inclusion by giving businesses of all sizes access to new markets and world class financial services.

Some recent career highlights include Banking Circle becoming a fully licensed bank in 2019, and my appointment as Chair of the newly-launched non-profit business association, Emerging Payments Association (EPA) EU.

On LinkedIn I’ll be discussing some of the key issues in payments, finance and technology. I’m really interested in other views and opinions, so am looking forward to your reactions.
