W&F Q2 2023

Editor’s Comment Welcome to the Q2 edition of Wealth & Finance International Magazine. As always, with every issue we endeavour to provide fund managers, alongside institutional and private investors with the very latest industry news in the traditional and alternative investment spheres. Six months into 2023, the shift to a digital world is showing no signs of slowing down. A cashless society is on the way to becoming a reality, with millennials and generation z placing great importance on making quick, convenient digital payments. Even older generations have begun exploring the benefits of electronic payments. Thus, providing digital payment options is in the best interests of any organisation. Technology indeed plays a huge part in our lives and so we should be able to make our payments electronically, too. At the same time, it goes without saying how crucial it is that these payments be made safely and securely. In this issue, we feature businesses who make payments easy and flexible, for both payer and payee, whether Lanistar’s payment card and app, or Expend’s spend and expense management platform. These companies are showing the industry how it’s done. Elsewhere, we take a look at iPensions Group, Most Innovative Pensions Support Provider 2023 - North West England, to explore its range of excellent pension options. We also get to know Investment CEO of the Year, Paul Regan of Next Level Holdings, and how his firm delivers stellar returns with a unique insurance based risk neutralising strategy. I hope you find this issue insightful and informative and look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Rebecca Scotland, Editor AI Global Media, Ltd.
