Flywire CEO to Discuss X-Border Payment Disruption at Money 20/20 Europe

BOSTON, March 31, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flywire CEO Mike Massaro will participate in a panel discussion on cross-border payments at Money 20/20 Europe taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark, April 4-7. The event focuses on payments, financial services innovation and connected commerce at the intersection of mobile, retail, marketing services, data and technology.

The past few years have seen a proliferation of new money transfer services using technologies like mobile and blockchain in creative ways to disrupt the financial services sector. Meanwhile, many banks have pulled back from the market. Massaro will join a panel of CEOs from other leading money transfer providers to discuss whether the industry is at an inflection point for global P2P or just scratching the surface. And whether there is the potential for a disruptive new approach that could redefine the market.
