  • Manage and develop a team of analysts at every stage of the research process from data gathering, analysis, writing, and feedback.
  • Work collaboratively with dedicated teams of financial services researchers and forecasters.
  • Develop new benchmarking reports that stack up payments companies by key criteria.
  • Write research reports on transformational trends in the payments and commerce enablement industry.
