Banking & Payments Consultant, CEO
Faisal Khan & Co.
I am a seasoned Banking & Payments Consultant. My area of specialty is cross-border payments, and within this arena, I work with B2B, B2C (including mass-payouts) and P2P (home remittances) companies.
I am well versed in various segments of the value chain for x-border funds movement, such as: money transfer licenses, regulatory frameworks, access to MSB friendly banking, correspondent banking relationships, FBO accounts, bank-led sponsorship, licensing coverage, payment networks, card processors, compliance, aggregators, AML/KYC setups and IT infrastructure provider (including mobile money apps).
Intimately versed in the crypto / alt-coins space, especially when it comes to cross-border value transfer including newer, innovative methods involving blockchain (distributed ledger technology) and utility tokens used for cross-border value transfers.
I have years of field experience which I add to continuously by conducting various field studies. I am a firm believer in working out of the comfort zone – to get answers. I subscribe to the theory that ‘data drives decisions’.
My network within the space is well respected and I actively network with regulators, liquidity providers, legal/compliance experts, deal-flow brokers, bankers and top management of various companies.
My clients include Fortune 500 & Fortune 1000 companies, Banks, Trans-Global Multinationals and Small to Medium Financial Services Institutions.
I work for my own company called Faisal Khan & Company which specializes in Cross-Border Money Transfer and Payment Systems. I’m essentially a payments consultant and an evangelist for digital money (aka Bitcoins and the Blockchain technology)
I primarily specialize in cross-border money transmission.
