Visa is the world’s leading payments technology company. We connect consumers, financial institutions, businesses and governments in more than 200 countries and territories, making it possible for them to use digital forms of payment instead of cash or checks. We operate one of the world’s most advanced processing networks — VisaNet — that is capable of handling more than 65,000 transaction messages a second, with fraud protection for consumers and assured payment for merchants.
Visa is not a bank and does not issue cards, extend credit or set rates and fees for consumers. Visa’s innovations, however, enable its financial institution customers to offer consumers more choices: pay now with debit, pay ahead of time with prepaid or pay later with credit products.
Visa is a Strategic Partner of KSE since 2016. The company is a co-founder of the Centre fro Excellence at KSE and a partner of the Ukraine Economy Week 2017. In 2018 Visa provided sponsorship support of a number of KSE projects.
Statement: In Visa we believe that the most important financial tool is knowledge. That is why for over a decade Visa has been developing financial literacy programs and supporting various educational initiatives to help consumers of all ages learn the essentials of personal finance.
In this regard, our partnership with KSE is notably valuable, as we have shared values and common goals of implementing high standards in economic research and business media, as the main source of education and financial literacy for all. Jointly we aim to create conditions under which among all other things best-quality journalism will thrive, and the role of media in forming the economic agenda will dramatically enhance. © Dmytro Krepak, Visa acting head of the CIS region and South-Eastern Europe
