How has your team navigated the challenges inherent in operating in new markets?

We have a great, loyal team with resilience and an incredible work ethic. The nature of working in the payments and identity industries with markets new to us means there can be unpredictable outcomes due to sociopolitical circumstances. Yet our team has been completely focussed, and we’ve been lucky enough to deliver our best year ever in 2023.
