Mercator Advisory Group Announces Global Payments Advisory Service

 Mercator Advisory Group announces Advisory Service name change from International Payment to Global Payments.

As a leading source of payment industry-related market research around the world, Mercator Advisory Group is happy to announce the name change of our International Payments Advisory Service (IPAS) to the Global Payments Advisory Service (GPAS). The shift from “international” to “global” may seem small but is significant because it highlights Mercator Advisory Group’s commitment to providing members of the service with a holistic overview of global payment markets, technologies, emerging players, and regulations.

Mercator Advisory Group has long provided leading multinational payment industry market research. Renaming the Global Payments Advisory Service demonstrates the company’s commitment to covering the growing globalization of the payments industry in that service and the firm’s other advisory services.

As associate director of the Global Payment Advisory Service, I aim continue to provide members of the service with in-depth and influential market research to assist in the strategic planning of new payment technologies and products for the global consumer and business base. I look forward to new and ongoing discussions with members regarding the name change and my existing and future research.
