Andaria Financial Services CEO Nirav Patel on Thursday brought to light the connections he built with others in the financial services industry and the innovation fostered during Money20/20, one of the world’s leading fintech events.

The event, which was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands between 6th and 8th June, was attended by an international assortment of C-suite executives within the areas of banking, payments, compliance, and investment. Money20/20 was founded in 2012 by a number of payments and fintech veterans from the likes of Google, TSYS and Citi, to facilitate conversations, connections and discoveries to allow individuals and organisations of all sizes to “achieve their goals and grow”. This year’s edition had over 8,000 delegates present.

Mr Patel was present during the event together with Andaria Chief Revenue Officer Reuben Abela, Managing Director Alan Smith and Chief Technology Officer Kurt Azzopardi.

Following the end of Money20/20, Mr Patel highlighted how much of an “exhilarating journey” and a “memorable experience” the conference was, before reflecting on the “incredible insights, networking opportunities, and innovative ideas” that were shared over the three days.

“But Money20/20 wasn’t just about business, it was also about connecting with like-minded individuals who share a common passion for reshaping the world of finance,” he said.

He added that these range from engaging conversations during coffee breaks, to networking sessions that “extended late into the evening”, as they Mr Patel and other attendees to build “valuable relationships” and expand their professional networks.

“As we bid farewell to Money20/20, we leave with a renewed sense of inspiration and a wealth of knowledge. The conference has served as a catalyst for driving innovation, fostering collaboration, and accelerating the pace of change within the financial sector,” he concluded.

Mr Patel has led Andaria as CEO for more than two years and describes himself as a “motivated” and “results-focused” individual that has a proven expertise in the payments and cards sector. Andaria is a fintech company that is also a licenced e-money institution in both Malta and the United Kingdom. Through its global multicurrency business accounts and embedded finance solutions, it is on a “mission to make digital financial services more accessible, simple and transparent for all businesses”.
