In Payments

We recently held a webinar on the huge shifts we expect to see in Brazil’s payments sector over the course of 2021 and beyond. In particular, we focused on 6 key megatrends:

  • Disappearance of Brazil’s “unbanked”
  • Instant payments displacing cash in Brazil
  • E-commerce seeing massive gains in Brazil
  • Rising dominance of contactless payments in Brazil
  • Mass small and medium enterprise digitization in Brazil
  • Cryptocurrencies becoming mainstream in Brazil

Marina Gil — the Payments Practice Brazilian Affiliate for AMI — led this webinar, and was joined on the panel by Gilmar Hansen, VP of RecargaPay, and Lindsay Lehr, the Payments Practice Managing Director for AMI. The panelists shared a wealth of data in this presentation, including:
