How does it feel to have won the Private Equity Fund Manager of the Year Awards?
Allied Wallet is doing the right thing and going in the right direction. We are trying our best to serve consumers and merchants in every aspect, and also to accommodate them in many countries. The award is based on us developing a better relationship with our merchants and increasing their portfolio.
Where do you see Allied Wallet heading in 2017 and beyond?
The firm is looking to IPO by the second or third quarter of 2017, and we are looking to increase our efforts to market the company to Africa and in the Middle East.
What role does innovation and creativity play in the work of your firm?
75% because pretty much what Allied Wallet does is innovating on a daily basis and building things around our merchants, to help them to be more successful. While serving customers in 196 countries, Allied Wallet can do that very well by having offices in multiple jurisdictions. In addition, the firm has people working on the ground, communicating with developers and the Allied Wallet’s software can accommodate local payment methods.
